The good thing about this waterfall is that you won't be inundated by crowds. It is small and somewhat obscure. You will find more local families here with their kids on any given day... It is good for an hour or so-maybe a short hike...More

The waterfalls are absolutely stunning and a must-see! Located very high up in the mountains and through the rainforest, difficult to get to unless on an ATV with a guide! Try using jungle ATV tours!
