Closed at the 1st waterfall; enjoyed the rouring waters. Discovered an amazing hiking trail, 1st road coming from the waterfalls on your right. Look for the sign; Beauty at its best.

The only open "trail" - if you even want to call it that - is Angelito, and its only about 1/4 of a mile long. Don't come - not yet anyway - if you are looking to do any sort of serious hiking.

This rainforest is amazing. Right now you can only go to Coca Falls, but it is well worth it. There are various ecosystems you travel through as you go up in elevation. I was able to visit the top through work, and I highly recommend...More
