Well maintained waterfall park. It was affordable and December was a great time to go. The weather was gorgeous 70 degrees and sunny. You can ride a horse up to see the falls for $3!

It is a great place to visit. Clean and beautiful. Two tips: go in rainy season and early, they open at 9:00 am.

The waterfall is small so don't expect a huge one, there is no swimming area below the waterfall and honestly no area for adults to swim. Kids will love it because you can wade in pretty much the whole creek below the waterfall. The park...More
