Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great time visiting Mazamitla. The waterfall was really fresh. So glad it didn’t rain. Wife and kids took a horse to the waterfall, I walked it. The trail is all hills so if you aren’t ready to walk for 2 kilometers on pebbled roads, take a horse or wait for the tractor pulled wagon.

As described in other reviews, this requires a bit of a hike - through beautiful scenery & past very nice cabins.

Although it is all downhill to get to the falls, and a long uphill climb back!

Worth the trip, but plan for hike back, or confirm tractor tram is running to catch a ride back up. Was running about 30min apart for $30 on my visit - and well worth it!

You may not access to the waterfall by car so there are 3 options for accessing to it, the first 2 options is by a neighborhood that’s why you may not access by car. Entering by the neighborhood offers 2 options the 1st one is walking to the waterfall, the distance is 2.2 kilometers (1.36 miles) the 2nd option is accessing by a horse ride which is about $150-$200 mxn ($7-$10 dlls). The 3rd one is not by the neighborhood but by an alternative route surrounding the neighborhood using ATVs (rent: 400 mxn (21 dlls)).
Once in the place where the waterfall is, you have to go downstairs and then arrive to it, once there you can take lots of pictures and admire the landscapes.
Awesome place!!

Beautiful waterfall. It is a long walk to waterfall if traveling with small children highly recommend the atv tours since they take you to a point and all you have to do is walk down to the waterfalls. Beautiful place.

I got to the waterfall on a four-wheeler, if you're a thrill seeker I recommend doing this. It's a bit of a hike once you get near the falls but it's quite beautiful.

It's actually easy to find the falls if you've been there but I couldn't find any good directions. I hope this helps. From the plaza, head Northwest toward Manual Cardenas Mata street. Turn left. It's a one way going SW. Take it to Vallarta street, where it dead ends. Go right. Take the 2nd sharp left. I can't find the name of this short street. It ends at Jacinto Chavarria street where you go right. Eventually this becomes Av. Eduarado Mantano Sahagon. Follow this until you come to a building that is the entrance to the Los Cazos housing development. The guard will charge you $25 pesos and give you a ticket. The road to the left seems to be for horses. The road to the right goes through the development of Los Cazos, which is a wonderful area of winding cobblestone roads dotted with beautiful and fanciful homes in the pine trees. Because it wasn't crowded when we did the trip, the guard let us drive our truck in. We left another car parked near the gate. Many people walked the route, but if you do, wear sturdy shoes. This part is about 2 kilometers, but we enjoyed it as much as the falls.
At the end, you park and walk down some steep stone steps to the bottom of the falls.

Our group decide to do the Cascada el Salto trip not asking or reading how the road was. BIG MISTAKE, We have 3 under 5 children and we couldn't continue the horse back riding for the 1 1/2 hour to the location. Glad we didn't we were told the road further down was very narrow and hard. We were very lucky that the office w booked the trip in town hired a sweet and very helpful guide , He sent a truck for us to be picked up to the location were we had stopped. The recruiter who booked us in town didn't not warn us about the dangers and that this was not for younger kids.

We hired Juan Pablo to take us from Ajijic to Mazamitla. He arranged 4 wheelers for us to the falls. School wasn't out yet, so it wasn't crowded. Since the rainy season is just getting started, the falls were nice. It not flowing at their full potential. I suggest taking the ATV's, because it looks like a LONG walk. There is a horseback riding option, but an hour and a half on a horse might be a bit much. Take snacks and drinks. There are bathrooms at the falls.

If you like to hike though pine forests and view beautiful cabañas along the way, this is not to be missed. From Mazamitla, it's 4km mostly downhill to the waterfalls and 4km back. We skipped taking horses offered us, and it only took about 4-1/2 hours. Take some food-drink and you'll be in walkers' paradise!
