“Kind of Gimmicky”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

If you want to stand under a waterfall and climb up and jump off a waterfall... this is the place to do it. If not... you get paddled up a little river, look at the waterfall (including from inside a cave, which is cool, but not that special to me). Definitely a "tourist attraction"...

“Great falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Beautiful falls. You must take the boat trip underneath the falls where the guide will put you right underneath the water which pounds against your body leaving you feeling invigorated.

“Worth a visit, especially if you like to swim!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Somerset falls is a lovely place to spend and afternoon. It costs 12USD per person which is very reasonable. Your guide takes you on a short trip through the falls, which are so natural and beautiful. He then takes you into a cave and you get the option to get out and swim and jump from rocks. Our guide was a bit quiet but still friendly. We watched him do back flips from really high rocks which was really cool. He then let me swim the whole way back in the river.
They also have some animals such as rabbits and parrots to look at and a swimming pool with a water slide.
Everyone was really lovely and welcoming, would definitely go back.

“Great Life Guards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

This is a great place to enjoy for they have something for everyone. The lifeguards are very personable, the water is so relaxing. Did not like having to walk across the road to the rafting which is not a very long ride.

“Crazy beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

For a fee of $12 pp we were able to see a great natural beauty of the Falls and witness some crazy acrobatics performed by the guides - worth every penny!
