Enjoyed everything about Guayabo Falls. William was knowledgable and committed. The hikes were great. There is 1 easy hike and 1 longer, steep hike. The falls are very swimmable. There's a centralized outdoor eating area with well-seasoned, generously portioned food. William and the bartending staff...More
