$16 to get in for a natural attraction is expensive but you can spend the day and pack a picnic lunch. You can swim in one of the falls and the water is crisp. There are bathrooms and change rooms. There are also tables to...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
