The many trails that branch off from the main one can be interesting to explore. The main attraction is the breath-taking river waterfall at the end of the route. It is said to be the tallest in the Caribbean standing at 75m of height, a gift from nature not to be missed.

Start the 7 km (4.4 mi) round-trip hike by heading downhill through lush forest; you’ll encounter distinctive rock outcroppings and canyon-like cliff faces before you reach the waterfall. Watch as the water cascades over rocks into a natural swimming pool at its base, which attracts hearty souls willing to brave the chilly water.
