Our recent lonely planet states this is $5CUC however the price is now $10CUC per person, this seems like a lot to walk in a park however, the walk through the forest was great especially if you like wildlife, birds in particular and you are able to swim in all four pools under the very different waterfalls, this was the...

After a small hike you will reach the waterfalls, do not forget to bring your swimming suite, the water is very nice to dive in

It's a wonderful park, well kept, easy to visit and the waterfalls are beautiful. Swimming in one of the natural water pools is absolutely recommended: we swam in the pocheta de cristal and it was very pleasant

Not much to add to most others reviews but just to say it is worth the trip. A refreshing dip was very welcome.
