  • The postcard view falling water into waterfall is phenomenal, the tranquility that is felt in the place is relaxing, if you can focus only on the fall of the water... The bad thing, built grills so that the people living there (causing the generation of waste and pollution of place). Beside the waterfall they built a kind of market where they sell you food, drinks and souvenirs of the place, stealing the essence of nature. It is 9 years old that her visits were not those facilities and the place was more spectacular. The horse used to pull carts or for a walk look tired and without adequate, poor animal care...

  • Very nice waterfall. It is a shame that they open kind of late for my taste and close too early as well. I like photography that is why early and late hours are important to me. In addition, there are...  more »

  • I could imagine that it's be much better nearing the summer months but either way what a lovely place. I'd recommend the local photographer as he got a great photo of us at the waterfall (and it's really cheap!). There are vendors there for you to eat before or after. Thought the walk up (yes they're are stairs) you'll find a luscious scene and benches to sit down and enjoy the view.
  • Great place to visit. 100% recommended. You can take in raw meat and do a cookout. They have pit. 👍👍
  • Don't waist your time! I have been here four times, roughly 40, 30, 20 years ago and yesterday. They have ruined the place. It was a naturally beautiful place 40 years ago and today it is a tourist trap. As soon as you show up until you leave it is all about taking your money.
  • Beautiful waterfall and park - a great destination for families looking to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Bring food to grill, chairs, and some drinks.
  • Not very big, like the other mountains surrounding Monterrey, but for me the most beautiful one. The waterfall is simply stunning and offers a spot for amazing fotos. The only downside is that the locals set up many shops, to take advantage of tourists heading that way, one of them literally next to the waterfall, which takes away from the beauty.
