Nice stroll

Great parking area after a cool drive to reach the parking area. Excellent pathway to reach near the bottom of the waterfall. About a 30 minute, fairly easy stroll.

I would say this was certainly a difficult and certainly challenging hike. Just a few things to note and consider, finding the entrance was difficult as the sign was hard to find, and once you are on the trail, there's directions/signs whatsoever.

If you want a good hike in some pretty good rain forest conditions then this is a good attraction to come to and is well worth the very small entrance fee. If you are doing anything other than the nearest waterfall then come prepared - plenty of water, something to eat, breathable rainproof jacket and very good footwear (preferably proper... More

We visited 1st and 2nd waterfalls. #2 is easily reached from the parking area (about 20 minutes along a very good route) - however, it is not so magnificent view, because the best spot has been closed after the 2004 landslide. The hike up to the 1st waterfall is pretty difficult - you should not under-estimate the signs and do... More

The higher falls are accessed through the signposted national park entrance for a small fee, there is a good view from the platform above the entrance for those who cannot walk far, interesting to reflect that C Columbus saw these falls from the sea and landed for fresh water as a result. The hike is about 20 mins on a... More

Heard the chutes are beautiful, but when we got there it was raining. The chutes should be visible from a viewing platform, but were just a blur. 20 minute walk each way moderate activity level to see the closer chute. Still couldn't fully appreciate it because of all the fog and rain. I can say it is a dramatic drop.... More

The access is paved, and just a short walk. The falls are really nice, especially when you see them both behind each other. There is a small entrance fee and there are toilets (not really clean, but still).

Wonderful views of the falls. Easily accessible, very easy walk to the second fall. If the walk is too much, I find it even worth the visit and the 2 euro's to just see them from far away at the viewing point near the reception area.
