We came with my boyfriend not expecting much and were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful scenery! Very good price, only $16 per person and you can hike 3-4 hours, pack lunch or get your lunch prepared for $8 extra (chicken was amazing!). It was off...More

GREAT hike! Recommend tennis shoes or hiking shoes. You might want a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get there. Take a rain jacket just in case you get caught in the rain. Beautiful waterfalls. Off the beaten path. A little more pricey than I would...More

My wife and I visited the waterfalls while staying in the Tronadora area. The waterfalls themselves are really good. Not the best I’ve seen, but worth a visit. The young guy at the ticket office assured me that it was fine to take my rental...More

On your way to this place you will see a lot of signs, which is good as you confirm you are on the right way. Once you arrive to the restaurant and purchase the tickets, a lady gave us some directions. There's a parking space...More

A late morning decision to go for the hike to see the falls with our 5-7-9 yr old kids. (I would not recommend much younger as there are quite a few steps) They had a blast and even joined for the swim after a picnic...More
