Had the honor of having an unexpected private tour with Crazy Carlos! His primary goal was to ensure my safety to and fro through and through. Very comfortable and likable person. Knows his stuff. Highly recommend!! (Carlos, if you're reading this - 😘).

After a 20 min climb over the dry riverbed you reach the first and biggest waterfall. Here you can swim and relax. After a more difficult 20 min walk upwards you reach the second and third waterfall.

The walk from the road was fun scampering along rocks and weaving your way along the riverbed. During dry season it's not difficult at all, just make sure you bring footwear better than flip flops. The waterfall itself was nice. We didn't go into the...More
