  • The falls weren't very great in my opinion, coming from Pacific Northwest of the USA. Additionally the last bit of trail leading to the falls was closed but this information wasnt mentioned anywhere in the town, before we took a 45 bus to the falls. Since the waterfall isn't too high/tall, we couldn't get a good view of the water fall with the last portion of the trail closed.
  • Just awesome
  • Overcrowded. Underwhelming. Overhiped
  • You must to make a stop here for this wonderful sight
  • Unfortunately only Turin ripoff. So how the Park is nice two different prices for national and international is that can't... 😭😳 Desgraciadamente, sólo Turín. Tan hermoso como el parque también precios diferentes para nacional e inter Nacional no funcionó tiene dos... 😤😠
