You can put on non-slip water shoes (available for rental if you don’t bring your own) to climb up the 600-foot (180-meter) terraced falls, carefully walking up the "steps" formed by the naturally chiseled rocks. You can also stop along the way to swim in one of the small pools that have formed on the different levels, and as you reach the top, you will be rewarded with a great view. If you’d rather relax, you can hang out on the deck located near the river to admire the falls, or go swimming in the natural lagoon at the bottom. When your time at the falls is up, you can head to a nearby restaurant for a 1-hour lunch break.

Our driver was great and very personable which made the drive go by fast. The guides at the park were very pushy at the end asking for tips.

It was super fun! Just wished the snorkeling would have been longer.
