  • It was a great place to visit, beautiful adventure. My advise is that you bring your own camera or cell phone in a waterproof case and take your own pictures. My guide Nino offered to take pictures, I gave him money and he never sent me the pictures. Maybe the other guides are better, just avoid Nino.
  • Absolutely a wonderful experience. The guides were very professional and entertaining but the river was out of this world. Go! It's worthy of the time to get there.
  • We had so much fun. It was me my gf and our son. We were so happy that we chose the long excursion, where we walked all the way to the top then visited each river one by one. Please take plenty of water wear sneakers that you don't mind getting wet. Our tour guides Giovanny and omega were very helpful and new the place in and out. They helped us a lot with our 11 year old son who had a blast. Please tip your guides and enjoy this adventure.
  • Great for folks who can't sit still at a beach or pool and need to be active at all times. Choosing the entire tour is best! Whether your fit or not, the challenge of doing it and accomplishing it is priceless.
  • I will first say if you are not physically fit I would not recommend this place for anyone over 50yrs of age. The first half of the tour is over 1 hour of walking mostly uphill we stopped a couple of times to catch our breath. The waterproof shoes I rented were not adequate for such a hike not to mention the numerous walks thru walk over hard rocks, I thought at any moment I would sprain or break an ankle. Once we reached the falls we had a good time.I think there were 10 or 12 waterfalls in all. After the last fall it was about a 30 minute walk back to the encampment. My feet were so sore from walking over so many rocks I just wanted to go home. Lunch Was provided but it really wasn't that good.The best part of the day was spending the 40 dollars to have our guide document our day on camera.
