  • Is a well-kept Park, cinnamon tourist spot where you must pass. There is a cable car that you can walk, it is simple, but worth checking out. For the more adventurous, you can make the trail to the base of the waterfall or ride a zip line. It is advisable to be with the physical in day to descend to the base and the time should be stable, sometimes on rainy days the area of the base is isolated and not allowed access. The prices are fair. When you come to visit, it's nice to prepare for a visit as well the Horseshoe Park that is very close.

  • The Park is very well taken care of, several parking spaces and the train ride is pretty cool for the kids. But now in February the ladder that leads to the base of the Waterfall is closed for maintenance, that hurt a little bit. The cost is 18 per adult.

  • An ideal place for picnics and get-togethers with the family! Has an outdoor environment pure and good energies in place! Has clean bathrooms, and on-site parking.
