  • You don't get a good view from the La Paz Waterfall Gardens but you can see it better from the road. It's not all that spectacular
  • What a cool place! Lots of stuff to see and do. I am 66 years old and my wife and I saw everything, pretty long walk, but mostly downhill. There is a shuttle to take you back up. Loved the aviary and butterfly enclosures.
  • It's a very nice place to a fast visit, no more than 15 minutes and maybe to shop some souvenirs, because there is not place for parking the cars.
  • You have to put your best hiking shoes on to truly experience the beautiful falls.
  • A truely unique place, a must see. We spent a whole day with my family here. My son's are 7 and 13. They both were very curious and happy to explore. Everyone we interacted with was super helpful. They helped us with taking pictures, moving animals for us in the frame or even waking up a red eyed frog to take a picture of. I recommend paying for the buffet because it was a wonderful meal.
