  • already the drive to the falls is a beautiful adventure. The road is winding through the jungle. The falls itself are located in a little gorge with tropical jungle. It is great fun to climb up the fa...  more »
  • Very nice water fall where you can walk as an attraction. Really fun to do you have to be water shoe and a slightly good condition. Bit busy there with Americans but what it later in the day or maybe very early.

  • AMAZING!! Nothing less ... There are 2 ways to visit Reach Falls on, with the locals as guide or even through the main entrance. 1. Through the main entrance takes you directly to the main pool, with the largest and most waterfalls. However, there has been no opportunity to go outside the area and follow the water flow DUE to government restrictions. But super nice and delicious water, completely crystal clear and right to drink. 2. Tag with one of the locals and then I promise you'll get an experience. It starts at the bottom of the water flow and goes into the water up to the large pool. Along the way, it is possible to jump from the cliffs and really enjoy nature and not the least water. However, it is not for everyone, but you're fresh on adventures so choose this option. It costs the same as if you were at the large pool. If you choose to use one of the locals, however, may not come up to the big pool, again due to. the Government's restrictions, but it gets you also do not need. Reach Falls is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, except if you use the local as a guide ... DO IT ... YOU HAVE TWO!!

  • Really nice outing and fun day if you're thinking about visiting here. Clear cold waters, massaging waterfalls, nice caves and tours... Will definitely do it again
  • Water was cool and relaxing; went on the nature hike which was fun though the guide kept leaving most of the group behind. Customer service could use some work, but all in all, had a great time.
  • This place is great and a hidden gem. It's not clearly marked with road signs to get their but google maps got us there. We went during the week and it was not too crowded. Bring mosquitos repellent with you. Even though it's a moving river the mosquitos were really biting. The water was really clear and safe for kids to wade in the water. Bring your own food and drinks as well. If you have pool shoes that's also a great idea since there are pebbles on the river bed. Some of the rocks were slippery. You are able to climb the falls and go behind the falls as well. My 6 year old girls were able to do everything with the guides.
  • Go and explore the small caves behind the waterfall. For a little tip someone guides you up the waterfall and the river, worse to do
  • Well managed falls nestled in the hills of Portland. Beautiful place to swim or just relax with family.
