  • Beautiful waterfall though you can't get very close to it. The path to the view deck is easy to walk and it takes about 20-40 mins depending on your peace. We went with my 1.5yo and he enjoyed it.
  • A Nice, short Family walk leads to the beautiful waterfall. Some information boards along the way explain the plants and history of the area. Nice place but a long travel if you start in San Martin. You should combine it with some hikes in the National Park.
