Nice little hike. Refreshing water. The cliff jumping and diving is awesome from the second waterfall, but be careful.

My husband and I went really early in the morning since we were staying nearby, and it was an incredible experience. We skipped getting a guide and just explored on our own pace. This was a fun and exhilarating way to do the waterfall, but...More

This is a fun adventure and will be a highlight of our trip. We visited the first falls with our children aged 9, 6 and 2. There were areas where a hand hold was required and we put the 2 year old into a hiking...More

We found the entrance to the hike up the falls quite easily. We did it in flip flops, I would have used Teva's or something like that next time. There are a couple of spots where you have to grab onto a rope to keep...More

We enjoyed a late afternoon visit to the falls, after the crowds had passed for the day. We found the falls, after a relatively easy 10-15 minute hike (though wear good footwear). It was not too busy. The water is great. Lots of photo ops....More

Nice waterfall with an access which is not so easy. Do insist that you do not want the guide because it is not free. There was a man, with a badge, that wanted to show us the way. He even walked along with us even...More
