The “trail” is concrete steps down to the waterfall. Cost us $6 (USD) per person. The area is pretty enough, but even when we went on a Monday it was packed. There’s a lifeguard who doesn’t allow people to swim too close to the falls. Very pretty, but we only ended up spending about an hour there.

awesome! go first thing to have the waterfall/blue lagoon to yourself (or mostly) :) took me about 1.5 hours to get there with plenty of quick stops to check for monkies.

Awesome trail with side trails leading to two waterfalls and 'cold water pots' where volcanic gasses are bubbling out of shallow pools of water. The hot springs themselves are warm and pleasant, but do smell a bit like eggs because of their sulfur content. We saw lots of wildlife on the trail including a large troop of white-headed capuchins.

FYI closed on Monday. We tried to hike and were threatened by the local “security guard” as he insisted we pay him $15 per person. Total shakedown.

Easy stroll down a well-maintained trail with gradual stair steps. Nice picturesque waterfall that is popular with locals for picnics and swimming. You can swim behind the falls, and even scramble to the top (although it's pretty slippery and dangerous--so be careful if you're feeling daring)!

Good hike through different vegetation to a gorgeous blue waterfall begging you to jump in. Bring the swim suits!
