It's not as touristy as other waterfalls for sure but for an introverted office worker like me, the Aguinid Falls course is just right. I loved being among the quiet lush greenery. I'm always in the city so to see greenery instead of buildings and cars was very refreshing.

Initially, I was a bit apprehensive because it does not look very impressive in the photos, but surprisingly I had a very good time! The course was a little bit hard for a weakling like me (I really do not get enough exercise) but not hard enough to make me want to quit halfway.

The guides are very friendly and helpful. They don't demand you to tip but my friends and i gave my guides 400 pesos each.. thank you for ensuring our safety. I don't go out a lot so I was a little scared about the course. They always helped me when I needed help in carrying my weight.

Thank you csp for the ride there.. we appreciate the free towels (I forgot to bring my own) and also the go pros because we don't have any of those at home.

Next time, I will bring my own waterproof bag.. my phone almost got wet.

Went for a quick visit here and it was truly the highlight of our Day! There is an Entrance Fee of Php 300 per Persons (inclusive of Entrance Fee, Environmental Fees, Guide Fees and Safety Gears (shoes and helmet) and I think it was worth the price. The falls was until 8th Level and I can say each level was a true combination of adventure and beauty. Our Guides (Kuya Mark and Ate Cora) were very friendly and supportive.

This is our second time to visit Aguinid falls. After swimming with the whale sharks, we went to the falls. First we had lunch at the entrance site where they cooked our meal. It was delicious! P1,200 for 4 main dishes with rice and coconut water. There were leftovers in our group of 5.

Compared to last year(Jan. 2019), the entrance fee jumped from P60 to 300. There was no required guide last year and no shoes and helmet. Appreciated the shoes as the rocks can be slippery and the ground uneven.

This time, there are 8 levels compared to 5 last year. Our guide Andrew is very friendly and helpful. The place itself is still beautiful. But there is less water and some areas are without water. Last year, the water current and the falls were spectacular! Was told there was drought all year?

Enjoyed the rock climbing part with and w/o rope. I thought it was more fun last year. Maybe it was because it was our first time?

It was very beautiful. After diving and visiting cities it was a breath of fresh air. You will have to guides assigned to you. We were 4 persons, me my wife and our two children. 16 and 13 years old. We were able to climb all the levels of the waterfall. Price was 300 pesos per person. Plus after we gave100 pesos tip to the guide. Both guides help you to get up at more technical places.

We went as a couple and had an amazing adventure here. The pair of us were new to waterfalls and the falls were just perfect for non-climbers. A real adventure. What we would have done without are two excellent guides I don’t know, Carlos and his cousin lead us with expert and got this 61 year old and partner up the 8 levels with great care.

Thoroughly recommended for the adventurous first timer. A waterproof camera would be a good extra as the scenery here is breathtaking.

Highly recommend- the guides are very helpful and it was an amazing experience. There are 9 levels you can pass and each is unique and refreshing. The guides take amazing pictures of you and help you to bring your bags safe and dry to the other side. So far best experience for waterfalls

Completely disorganized operation, and blame can lie with the employees who work here, and I assume their government superiors. Rude to customers, did not provide adequate information on the falls. Way over priced for what you get. I would not recommend as there are far better waterfalls to visit in the area.

Aguinid Falls is unique because it is not a single waterfall. Rather it is a system of waterfalls that runs for a couple of kilometers along Tangbo River. Since it was promoted as an eco-tourism destination, locals and foreigners have witnessed this one-of-a-kind, multi-tiered waterfall system.

We didn't expect to be climbed that way, we took 2 very nice guides with us.
The rocks we climbed some are very slippery (especially the black rocks) need to pay attention and be careful.
I would recommend taking a guide as there is a guy they tie a rope with and need to climb with him.
The climb itself was amazing and the water there is very pleasant.

So we went beginning of October, drove from near the whaleskarks on a moped, took about 35 minutes. The cost of a ticket is now 300 pesos per person, I previously read it was 60 pesos so note this change, however this ticket included a helmet, life jacket and water shoes and 2 guides. The guides took us up to level 8 and on reaching the top you then walk back down the path. It probably took us about 45 minutes or so in total for the whole experience. Not really a waterfall for swimming, more for the climbing and adventure experience. Guides definitely needed to help get you to the top safely,great fun.
