Don’t miss this place. It was absolutely fantastic! So beautiful. It was exactly how I pictured Panama to be.

Bum trip and 10$ for a hike in the jungle. So not worth it. Not even a true waterfall. Sorry very disappointed

My bf did the ziplining and saw a toucan in a tree! My daughter and I walked the trail and we all had fun in the natural pool after.

A lovely ‘natural’ pool to swim in, refreshing on a hot day. The waterfall is completely underwhelming ! Overpriced for what it is.

We visited the fall with our children aged 5 and 3. We did not take a guided tour, but probably will next time. Kids felt like real adventurers, going over the hanging bridges and looking over the stream. The natural swimming pool was empty, I...More
