We decided to walk down to Devil's pool. The walk is difficult because of the natural rocks that create the path down. Good shoes are recommended. No food either, because the bamboos will take everything. Huge bamboos are everywhere. They are great for pictures. At...More

The most amaizing experience. Have to do this. Walk along the falls with guide, then short swim and jump into the pool. Incredible views.

Only available in low water season. However, even then, it was impossible not to think that there was a real possibility of getting swept over the edge. There is always a current!

Due to the season, I went into Angel's Pool, which is similar but more straightforward than the Devil's Pool tour. My small group took a very short boat ride to an island and were immediately led on a brief hike (barefoot in swimming gear) over...More

Hi Gloria. The actual minimum is seven years old, but yes, only if the child is a strong swimmer. The Devil's Pool experience is actually quite accessible, but there is a bit of a swim to get to the pool. We hope this helps!

I paid in advance and had no issues. They also provided optional instructions to wire money from my bank, but I just used my credit card.
