This water fall is a true wonder, is surrounded by green trees and rocks, it's truly a blessing to see the work of nature at its finest.

If you don't like rope suspension bridges, you won't like this place. I love rope suspension bridges, and there are 4 or 5 of them here. The falls are beautiful, and the pool is as well (and secluded), though as you might expect the water is rather cold.

It's nice how they give some extra information and how you can walk around over the bridges. The swimming area wasn't used when we were there

This facility has a nice rainforest walk, a swimming pool and zip line with three different levels, one suitable for children and there is a guide who will ride with children or adults with special needs. The price for a complete tour is $65. It's $5 to just hike and use the pool.

This is the classic turist trap, the also... More

We saw this by zip line from 100'feet in the air and it was spectacular! To everyone: go! The zip line company, Canopy Tours, was great! Very safe and friendly guides!
