If you are in the park and heading in the direction you might as well stop by. The waterfall is not anything special but it does offer a different kind of setting than the green of the forest.

This is a small nice waterfall in the reserve that is worth a visit but do not expect anything spectacular.

Lovely hike through the cloud forest leading down to the base of a waterfall. Hike is moderately strenuous and slippery in some places. Benches are provided along the way.

We arrived late in the day and were worried we wouldn't have enough time. The descent in and the "swim" at the falls were short compared to the hike out. My nephew counted something like 440 steps. The last 100 were just a little tough...More
