Loved this waterfall and wished that we had discovered it sooner in our trip. Only saw the lower (and largest) waterfall and enjoyed swimming in the large pool there. We went a second time at 6:30am and had the place to ourselves. Definitely would recommend.

The Montezuma falls were not easy to get at. Bring good shoes, that can get wet, beacause you have to wald in forest and have to cross a river. We had about 30 min from Montezuma center to the waterfall.

I love this adventure, it is a must if you visiting Montezuma. I do recommend a local guide for the hike. Pedro [86593923] was the best. He helped guide through this wonderful and difficult terrain. He made easier and fun. The "Morenitas"

This is a pretty easy hike if you are reasonably fit. But, if you are not - or you have bad ankles/knees/hips this is not for you. Takes 20 min...could take a lot longer if its rained recently as it gets muddy. The hike is...More

This short trek, about 15 min, to the falls is pretty easy for a fit or average footed person. Maybe hard for someone who has mobility problems. You have to pay some coins to help them maintain the path but it’s not much. Then you...More
