We wanted to walk to the waterfalls alone, but were swept up by a young man who calls himself Crazy Carlos at the bottom of the falls and he guided us upriver and along slightly treacherous trails to the falls. At first, I was not...More

We accessed the falls by walking up what felt like a billion steps. I'm not sure if there is an easier way to get there, but the walking was good exercise (which we all agreed was needed after many many plates of delicious food from...More

If you are looking for a little bit of adventurous hiking, look no further. This has all your nature needs. We hiked with a large family group, ages ranging from 6-65 and we really all loved this place. The waterfall was beautiful and well worth...More
