  • I did the 3hr with horseback riding, it was not worth the $55. First of all it didn't even last 3hrs, it was barely 2hrs, then the horseback riding part was only the last 30 minutes or only went up a hill and not past or thru any waterfalls. It was rigorous hiking to see the waterfalls. They were pretty, but not that amazing. The best part was the home cooked lunch when we got back for an additional $5. Ohhhh and they made us pay in cash, we barely had enough money to pay them after that surprise!
  • If you are searching for waterfalls, in which you can swim, here we go. 4 of them on 1km of steep stairways. Beautiful nature. Private property. 16USD entrance fee. Toilets and drinking water from pipe included. Have a nice day and don't litter.
