We chose a bad time to visit these falls and I will tell you why. To get to the waterfall you have to turn off the road that crosses the center of the island, and into the bush. There is a parking lot where you can leave your car and begin the little walk that is accessible for almost everyone, there is even a souvenir stall. When we arrived at viewpoint from which we supposedly where to see a really spectacular waterfall. but looks like at this time of the visit there was not much water. So the most we could see, was a trickle of water. Although good, with the surrounding landscape one could get an idea of ​​how awesome it would be in full spring. From the viewpoint you can also see the south coast, with the waves breaking against the coral reef and ravines that go from the center of the island down to the sea. On the short walk to the waterfall we entered into the dense semi-tropical forest. The site is very quiet and in summer it should be spectacular.

Finding this waterfall was definitely an adventure. 1st, because the indicators range from the road until they are all like you see in the picture, and 2nd because it is between high-rise cane roads that are misleading. Once we got there we realized it was worth it. We left the car at the side of the candy cane, and then, out of nowhere came a guide to go with us to the waterfalls that were 20 meters tall ... After we went a short way down to the bottom of the waterfall. The show is really nice. A fall of about 10 feet above a lake of a large depth, about 3 meters and fragmented lava walls with rectangular shapes. Then, our guide walked up a path to the stream that led to the waterfall, took a cane and twisted it to us to try their juice ... mmm a delight. Then we asked for some money, as normal, we gave and help us back on the road to return. It was what I liked most that day, though I showered, but it was cold but my traveling companions said there was frost, but it was worth it.
