It cost money.
Other than that it's a pretty hike with a nice waterfall at the end. It's not really much of a hike though. You walk on a road the whole time.

$16 to look at a water fall.... I'll pass. There are better hikes on the island that aren't commercialized.

Beautiful and relaxing trail, great opportunity to step into the original culture of the island. The waterfall is beautiful after a heavy rainfall to!

$16 entrance fee and you are required to wear a life jacket in the swimming hole. Bullshit.

My husband and I went on an overcast/rainy day and really enjoyed ourselves. There was hardly anyone there at all! The "hike" is more of a one mile stroll on a paved path through the botanical gardens and valley scenery. The Falls at the end were plenty full due to the rainfall. A few brave souls were swimming at the falls (lifejacket required) but we just watched.

There is an entrance fee but I didn't think it was unreasonable - especially if you are a plant nerd like me ;) The area is really beautiful and worth checking out. I could see how it wouldn't be as fun on a hot and dry day though - maybe save this trip for if it's too rainy or cold to go to the beach.

Forgettable, not worth the money.

About an hour hike. They give you a map and pamphlet with information about the history and all the plants/birds. There's also signs on the trees and near the flowers to tell you what they are. You can even swim in the falls!

Sad to see such beautiful nature get turned into a money guzzling cesspool.
