The falls and the views over the countryside are amazing, however, the falls can be dangerous for youngsters as the pathway can be extremely slippery.

This cascade, situated on Pinares de Mayarí plateau, is the most popular attractions of La Mensura National Park. It affords a superb view of the waters flowing down a 300 m steep slope as well as a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains.

It was either 79 CuC or 99 CuC per person. Cant remember which, you could pay in English currency though if you preferred, and at the time the exchange rate was about 1.35 CuC to the pound.
