Shorter trail publicly posted is not the official trail. For thrill seekers, go for it. But it’s not safe. The official trail however, is loooooong. Make sure to bring snacks and water (I suggest energy drinks or any drink with electrolytes) for hydration and be...More

It maybe more tough if the trail is wet but should OK, but sure to be more dangers if you want get down to the beach. Otherwise I believe the falls will be more beautiful after raining.
