Book a guide in advance or try to get one in town as you find a parking spot! You can cliff jump form different spots, just make sure you are with someone of experience! Dont forget to Climb down to the last and highest waterfall!

I loved it! But it is a steep walk down and a steep walk back up. I'm 71 so take that into consideration but I'm also in good shape. There are actually 2 waterfalls, the first is the smaller of the two, and where you...More

We booked a day trip with El Sunzal Surf Co. The trip was very reasonably priced. Our driver didn't speak a lot of English, but he spoke some and was very friendly. The waterfalls themselves are free, and there are public busses that run there,...More
