While they charge to park and there's a nominal eco-tourism fee, the falls are multi-layered and worth every penny. Spring water gushes year round unlike falls closer to Oslob (Tumalog Falls). Come here for perfect views and cool swimming.

We travelled up and down the coast considering which set of falls to visit. As there are so many other things to see we only left time to visit one, hoping we’d get it right and have our fill.

We chose Inambakan as the main falls (Level 1) looked the most beautiful, and would have the least visitors to spoil the natural beauty. We chose right.

This is an absolute gem - beautiful falls, friendly locals and none of the “manufactured waterpark” atmosphere created at other falls.

The drive up is getting better (newly paved sections) but is not a challenge if you are comfortable on your motorbike, or have a hired guide.

Entry is 50php. We had read that there were ways to avoid having a guide but why refuse meeting a happy, friendly local who took photos, shared his experiences and showed us the best way to enjoy his backyard. He didn’t ask for anything but we tipped him to show him how much we appreciated our visit.

We left thrilled - highly recommended (even though we only visited one)

My family and I decided not to go to Kawasan Falls to avoid the crowd. We went to Inambakan falls instead. We made the right decision! Inambakan falls was absolutely gorgeous!!! And except for 2 other families, we haf the falls to enjoy the whole afternoon. We paid 50 pesos per person and that included the entrance, the life jackets and the guide. The water of the falls was strong and there were 8 levels. We just went to 2 levels and we were absolutely stunned by its beauty. The water was clear and blue. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had so much fun swimming and taking so many instagrammable photos. Visit Inambakan Falls! You'll truly love it!
Note: Tumalog Falls was dry and the water was murky. The surroundings had a stench of urine.
Aguinid Falls charges 300 pesos per person

The falls are breathtaking! 6 levels to them that you can swim in. Our tour guide was so much fun! He jumped off the waterfalls with us and took many many good photos of us!

If you can, buy some bread at the stand (at the parking lot) to give to the starving pups (just be careful when feeding). They aren't doing a great job keeping the poor pups fed there unfortunately :(

Clean water, not a crowded place, very relaxing, quiet and a safe place. The advantage of this waterfall is that it has a rock where the water falls😁

A great God's gift. Very beautiful, adventure, and amazing to experience. The water is cold and relaxing. Not too crowded, but the location is a bit far.

We loved visiting Inambakan Falls. The falls themselves are amazing, and the walk to get there was fantastic too.

I visited on a weekday afternoon and apart from encountering about four Fili[pinos returning from the falls as I hiked for 15 minutes to reach it, there was no one else there.

In the scenic town of Ginatilan, I hired habal-habal (motorbike) driver Arthur, who was very friendly. The return fare was P50 although I must admit I tipped him at the conclusion.

He kept the speed down to 15kmh as I am not fond of riding without a helmet, even on a paved road such as this. However as usual, hanging onto him it was easy even for Westerners and others not used to travelling by motorbike.

The hike was along a partly muddy trail with some large butterflies observed as I came closer to the falls.

The raft under the falls was very cheap, and a fraction of the cost of Kawasan Falls. The waters were turquoise and so the scene looked very attractive.

It's best to go on a weekday of at all possible as this gives one the chance of having few others, or as occurred to me, no one else, at the falls.

Going there in the morning around 0800 when the sun hasn't reached full tropical strength would also be terrific, but even in the heat of teh afternoon this was most enjoyable.

I used a combination of tricycles and the public buses (half hourly frequency) to get to Ginatilan and had no problems. A bargain day out to see three lovely falls in one day.

This is the most stunning and unknown water fall in southern Cebu. Many people rave about Kawasan falls but to be honest i think this waterfall is 10000x better than Kawasan. Unfortunately the cliff jumping is not as good but the rest of the water fall is way better. There are more than 5 tiers of waterfalls leading you up stream into the jungle so make sure you bring your hiking shoes and get ready to swim in the most beautiful water you have ever seen. Best of all, it will be less crowed

Wanted to go to Kawasan Falls but don't like the crowd and the jumping? Go here instead. It's a little far off Samboan and oof the beaten path but if you have a motorbike you can easily get in. Just for one dollar, you'll get a free use of lifevest and entrance to this majestic waterfall. It has cool, clear water that you will surely love. I stayed here for an hour and really got to enjoy frolicing in the water. There is even a mini falls over the stairs. I loved it here.
