Montezuma Waterfalls

Towering some 80 feet high, the Montezuma Waterfalls are one of the area's main attractions. The hike there and back can be done in under an hour, although visitors should take their time, as the trail can be slippery. There are three places to pick up the path. The first is near La Cascada Restaurant, over the bridge. Following the road uphill toward Cabuya leads to the second entrance. The third starting point is the shortest, even farther along the paved road at the Mariposario Butterfly Gardens. From here the hike only lasts about 15 minutes.
