Took the hike to the waterfall last week while in Montezuma. Not a tough hike, but not well marked at all. The trail runs up the sides of the river and is a challenge to see unless you are familiar with it. Hiking up the...More

Nice to go in the morning, when gong take the path in your right is the fastest one. Don't need to pay any guide at all. Just not worth it.

Most see in Montezuma. Climbing and beautiful waterfalls. Perfect for a moment with friends or family. Thank you Crazy Carlos for our amazing experience.

This is my second time visiting the falls. Early morning is always better to avoid the crowds. At 8 am, I was there all alone. The main falls at the bottom are nothing compared to the climb above it. There is a little cascading fall...More

A lovely place to stop off and watch and listen to the water...it sings to the soul...and relieves the stress of the humidity and heat that hangs like a pall over the whole of the area...

This is a bit of a hike and you will get wet and muddy. The guide book failed to mention that the route to the falls was fairly difficult. My wife and I are fairly fit and adventurous so it was okay but some would...More

From the centre of the village, head along the coast road with the water on your left for approx 400 meters until you have to cross a narrow bridge fit for one car at a time. As soon as you cross this bridge turn right...More

The hike itself was better than the falls, in my opinion. The waterfalls were pretty cool, but the trek to the waterfalls was the adventure! Not for the faint of heart - it's not well-marked, nor is there a lot of safety measures in place,...More
