Nice hike , this tour you dont Need to book. Most tours you can just go If you have a car. Saves some money. Go early. Can get busy. Some parts are a bit more challening but overall it is fine.

Very much enjoyed our afternoon hike to the big falls. It took about 50 min one way. The falls were huge and gorgeous! Moderate level of hiking and completely worth it

Hiked up to the large waterfall then down to Nambilla. For $3 each you can use the slide and small pools. Great fun, lovely spot

If you enjoy hiking and waterfalls this is the tour for you! The tour starts with a transfer by a small open cable car/funicular similar to a zip line. You will have a great view of the top of the jungle! Then you can hike...More

Yes, there is a path. A little hidden and the people selling the tickets for the Tarabita are not eager to point it out. Instead of walking Right to the ticket office, look LEFT and the path is just along the edge of a... More
