  • We went with our little son, beyond the Park pays to ride a train that doesn't last the course plus 5 minutes, leaves in a village that is also not so careful and terminating the route. The view of the waterfall is beautiful, only. It's not worth it.

  • Very well maintained Park, overlooking the beautiful Waterfall! Is a park to be visited for a day.

  • Well kept, clean Park, with easy access by car. Light trails to make and see a wonderful view. Who's more adventurous has a longer and more difficult trail a little more than give a waterfall bath released! Has the feeding site.
