You pay 5000 for parking the car across the street and 5000/ person entrance fee at the start of the trail.

Pretty nice and easy walk back to the waterfall. We went on Dec-29 around noon. It was super busy. On the way in it was all shaded. You cross the river a few times through the water which was shallow. It’s fun to climb up the falls a bit. On the way out we got quite a bit of sun. Because it was so busy it took a little bit enjoyment away. Still worth the walk.

This place is OK, however not really worth the effort when there are so many beautiful places to see around here. The walk in takes about 25 to 30 minutes, crossing a shallow creek 5 times so take shoes you are willing to get wet. No guide is needed, the path is straight and very well marked. We had a baby and 5 year old with us, and took a stroller - no issues whatsoever.

The pool and waterfalls are nice, though I sure would not like to be there on a day when there are many people. The water is cool to swim in, and there are places to sit around on the ground at the edges in the shade.

You can park at the entrance for 5,000 pesos, and the entrance fee is 3,000 pesos per adult. We did not have to pay for kids.

The waterfall is barely over 6 feet drop and nothing spectacular. The trail there was dusty and crowded with lots of both tourists and locals, this on a Tuesday afternoon. With so many people, the most wildlife you will see is some chickens and a few stray dogs. Not worth the time and trouble.

Took a hike through the woods/river to the waterfalls with a guide. Be sure to wear water shoes as you do have to walk through water that could be up to you knees at times. We were not advised about this and when we arrived there were plenty of vendors selling rubber sandals etc. but no large size for men > size 10.

The hike was good and so was our guide.

The falls were very nice but nothing you haven't seen before and there was a body of water for swimming in front of it. Water was very chilly.

My biggest issue was the plumbing situation (no flushing toilets) and having to go through Santa Marta to get there. The bathrooms were awful. The attendant issues each women a square of paper. Then she flushed after each person with a bucket of dirty water from a bigger bucket of dirty water. The conditions of the restrooms were just not good. To get to the falls we had to travel through Santa Marta which I found littered with garbage just about everywhere.

I would skip this next time personally.

We were taken on a one hour plus journey on a school bus !!! to the Quebrada Valencia nature reserve.We did this on a Sunday and it was definitely a mistake as the world and his wife were doing the same trip.After a nature walk of about 50 minutes along a muddy path and across several streams we reached the pool and waterfall,was it crowded ?
No it was absolutely rammed with people and looked so disgusting we turned around and walked back ( we passed more than 300 people walking the other way !)
I guess on a quiet day it might be totally different but we saw virtually nothing apart from some spiders a red squirrel and cows and pigs.
If you do go wear suitable shoes which you dont mind getting soaked.

Quite a lot of tourists but if you go in the morning, you nearly have this natural pool for your own.

We went here on a tour and honestly not expected much, but were pleasantly surprised. Great eco walk to get to the quebrada along which all kinds of snacks (platanos, arepas, etc.) and handicraft are sold, but not so much that it drives you crazy. Getting to the quebrada and taking a refreshing dive is só good, and climbing further up is just amazing - so beautiful and peaceful! It's very much worth getting up early for so that you get there before the crowds. And it's something else than all the beautiful beaches around..

This could be a pleasant walk to a small waterfall -- except that it is overrun with people. Not recommended for those prefer a quiet hike with some privacy. Some enterprising folks rent horses, so the path is crowded with both pedestrians and people being led to the falls on horseback.

It's worth noting that you have to wade through several river crossings to get to the waterfall, so be prepared to get your shoes wet. The waterfall itself is fairly small and you can't even get a decent picture of it as there are, at any given time, a couple dozen people posing under or in front of it.

The slanted rock formation on which the waterfall runs down is geologically interesting. You can climb up on some of the slippery and sharp rocks and bathe in some of the small pools higher up, but it's nothing spectacular.

There are a number of vendors along the path selling knick-knacks, tea, arepas and other snacks. Entrance fee is 3000 pesos per person as of August 2017.

This is a nice excursion to take, walking through the rainforest to a waterfall with a pool where you can freshen up with a swim. Good picnic option too. You can meet the indigenous indians selling their artesanal works as well.
