Nice and short walk to the falls from the road. The falls are nice. Being from Canada we are not used to paying money to go for a nature walk.

This was a great short hike. They also have zip lining and at the end of one of the hikes you can actually swim and a natural spring. We only went for the waterfall we didn't do the swimming but the pool is actually stunning....More

Took the 20 minute walking tour for $5 per person. Pretty easy to navigate and wow what natural beauty. Waterfall, lush vegetation and swimming hole. Will definitely do the zip line next time. Take your time and enjoy what nature has to offer.

Nice attraction, nothing on the scale of Niagra or Iguazu Falls, but nonetheless, a nice spot to walk through and jump in the ice cold waters of the falls. Don't let them overcharge you to enter.

This is a stunning waterfall in El Valle de Anton. This walk to the waterfall is really short and easy but so incredibly beautiful.

This is a bargain if you are in the area. We took the walk for $5 each, saw a water fall, swimming pool and walked across fun rope bridges (a little shaky) that make the walk fun.

An ok visit but the whole place needs some attention and repair. Considering you pay to visit and the payment is supposed to go towards maintenance and upkeep, it could be much better.

Anton Valley is a must see. The jungle hike gives you breath taking views of the waterfall. You can also do the zipline, but it is not really worth the money.

It is up to the workers that are on staff to make this available. If you feel inclined to give them a tip, this would help the situation and make it possible to bring in your dog.

Go through the main town of El Valle... past the market on your left (there is a little tourism office there) keep going over a little bridge... take the right fork (you will see tourist signs to El Macho) just a little way... More
