Great hike, great view.

This is great. This is why you come to Trinidad. Take a trip to the mountains Stop at the mirador that overlooks the seacoast, the city and looks up to the mountains. Continue... read more

The treck to this place is 7km round trip on a jungle path which is dangerous and hazardous. If you are not fit you will struggle, I'd hate to thing what would happen if someone slipped and broke their ankle or something. Its hot and humid so take water. The waterfall is rubbish, certainly not worth the horrible walk. I... More

The walk down to the cascade is stunningly beautiful. We went there early with a taxi (50CUC return) and we were there practically alone for a good hour which was magic. I recommend taking a swimming suit as the swim in the natural pool is an absolute must! Going back up is good exercise but nothing extreme if you're in... More

First and the most important for those who want to experience something unique - go there early in the morning, preferably between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. You can be almost sure that you are the first one on the track. After an hour or less, depending how fast you hike, you will reach a natural swimming pool on the right... More

After a long rocky walk in extremely hot weather, we arrived at a beautiful waterfall that cascaded down into a clear fresh water pool. the water is a cool antidote for the intense heat of the day. Be prepared to pay 10 CUC each to walk to the waterfall though, which is rather extortionate in our opinion.

Take the Russian army truck up into the mountains and walk to the waterfall and swim in the lake, its quite a long walk but well worth it. We are nearer 70 than 60 but still beat the youngsters on the walk!!!

Long walk but well worth it. Take a lot of water with you, make sure you have confortable shoes and don't forget your camera.

We do quite a lot of walking - usually up and then down - so going down and then finishing on an 'up' was a change for us. A few things I wish I'd known before we started..... The walk is mainly through trees so we needn't have been so worried about unrelenting exposure to the sun It is quite... More

You get here by car in about an hour from Trinidad. The first part of the walk takes you downhill through the forest for about 45 minutes to a waterfall and a pool where you can swim. The descent is quite steep in places, so you need decent shoes and a bottle of water. Climbing back up obviously takes longer... More

Very nice hike and waterfall is amazing. You need to go early to beat the heat and the crowds. Hike down is about 45 minutes but the hike up can take quite a while. There are mules about half way up to bring you back if you are too tired.
