“Incredible day out!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Such a beautiful place to go and visit! We did happen to be in an accident on the way there, but the taxi driver was very calm and got us another taxi really quickly. When you arrive it is a lovely walk (although quite tough in some parts) up to the great waterfalls to swim in! We walked for about an hour before we found somewhere perfect. The water is fresh and cool and you feel like you're in your own little paradise. You have to get a grand taxi (pretty easy if you walk to the grand taxi rank, which most people can help you with) with other people to keep it a cheap day out! But we ended up meeting some lovely people by doing that!

I would definitely recommend going- a perfect day!

“A Moroccan experience”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We left early morning for the waterfalls after having read about it on Tripadvisor. We missed the splendid views. It is not the scenery we expected, but it was nice to see how the young Moroccons spend their holidays: camping with friends and enjoying the cold(!) water. At noon we were happy to be back in Chefchouen.

“Big hike but well worth it”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Make sure you hike to the grand cascade. It will take you a good 2 hours each way. Important things to remember are firstly to wear good comfy closed in shoes (there are all kinds of tricky terrain), take plenty of water and a snack (you can also buy refreshments near the waterfall) and most importantly allow plenty of time to chill out at the grand cascade. We had such differing opinions from people telling us how long the trek was going to take and therefore only had 20 mins at the waterfall. Still it was an amazing time.
