  • This is a beautiful walk along the railway lines from Aguas Calientes. The waterfall is amazing. It is peaceful and absolutely beautiful with a display of all the indigenous plants along the walk towards the waterfall. There is a small coffee shop just before you enter the reserve.
  • This was a great walk from Aguas Calientes along the railroad track. I love walking along tracks in the rainforest, there is just something about it. Walking by the towering cliff faces and looking out into the tops of trees to watch the small songbirds and hummingbirds. Got to photograph quite a few birds, and saw some interesting mushrooms.
  • The place have a restaurant and the food it’s very good and generous, in the gardens you can rest in one of the palapas along the way to the fall
  • What a great place. Owesome
  • This is a very good place to stop for lunch. The overnight accommodations are minimal, but good. The nature preserve is unforgettably beautiful.
