It's safe to walk here although the local tourist office says it's not and that you should go with a guide and pay $15. I went alone but it was weekend so there were plenty of other people around. The waterfalls are not that great,...More

Went to Juayua for the Feria Gastronomica and went to these water falls as well. It was quiet and refreshing. A welcome relief from the dust and heat. I had read reviews that it's walking distance from town. I would strongly advise against that! It's...More

We visited here with a guide and we are so glad we did. He took us to 4 different waterfalls and they were all incredible. Would definitely recommend checking this out.
