Beautiful waterfall with a indiana jones feel! The walk is very short and takes about 15-20min. If your going here for some hiking this is not the place! Go to Gaital mt.

Tyrolien was amazing, the team helped us so much, they thought us a lot about the nature, it was wonderful. The cascade was high, but it wasn't Niagara Falls :-)

It's maybe a 10 - 15 min walk to the waterfall. Not much else besides that. I thought the 5 USD dollar entrance was high compared to the standard in the area.

We enjoyed our walk to the waterfall. Some of the walks are up and down. They could use some repair since many people visit.

If you are simply going to see the falls and not to use the natural swimming pool or canopy tour it's hard to pay $5 per person. You wouldn't need more than 10 minutes there. Talk to the locals about alternative ways to get in,...More

The water fall is nice, but budget only a short time for your visit here. Walking the trails won't take you longer than 15 or, if you really walk slowly, 20 minutes.

We were brought here by a local guide after a morning of birding. So we were glad the walk wasn't too long or too strenuous. We had hiking poles but the reception area had a multitude of hiking sticks for those not having hiking poles....More

It is up to the workers that are on staff to make this available. If you feel inclined to give them a tip, this would help the situation and make it possible to bring in your dog.
Once you are in El Valle, where exactly do you go to hike to the waterfall if you are going on your own without a guide?

Go through the main town of El Valle... past the market on your left (there is a little tourism office there) keep going over a little bridge... take the right fork (you will see tourist signs to El Macho) just a little way... More
