The waterfalls are a must see for any eco tourist or curious traveler. An exhilarating way to see them is on a canopy tour that zips you from one platform to another through the lush jungle. Or you can take a hike and follow the river uphill until reaching the river pool which is the base of the waterfall. The most popular waterfall, Montezuma Waterfall, cascades twenty four meters down into a large pool and is reachable in a twenty minute hike from the center of town.
