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.

Great waterfalls, definitely worth checking out. Walk or take a bumpy tuk-tuk ride, but do not take your car. Road is not in a great condition.

We came here with my father-in-law that resides in El Salvador so he is basically a local. We didn't feel any danger but the drive from town was a bit sketchy as the sign disappeared once you turned into the dirt road. Once we got...More

Not far from the town, this set of waterfalls is lovely. The water is fresh but not cold and there is a current. You can climb the rocks and swim through the tunnels (although be careful as some of them lead to waterfalls, our guide...More
