The climb is for some parts quite intense but when you teach the top it’s all worth it! Unfortunately for us the waterfalls where not so impressive due to the lack of water (end of summer).

A challenging hike that was a little less than 2 miles. Straight up most of the way and you’ll experience 3 waterfalls with the 1200-1500 change in elevation. Highly recommend to wear proper hiking footwear and don’t bring any valuables.

Lovely walk through the jungle along a creek with some waterfalls, passing petroglyphs from a long time ago. Approximately 300m / 900ft altitude from the village to the summit. Trail is easy enough if you are used to a bit of hiking now and then.

I found it on google. Take the road into town to the T and there will be signs there directing you. I also googled a video prior to the hike to confirm which path, as it is not well marked.
