Short walk to average to disappointing trickle
May 2016 • Solo
I did the walk to this place alone. It took about 1 hour round trip from my hostel (walking reasonably fast). It is fairly steep down and then back up. Short but certainly not for the very elderly.

At the end of the main road going west from town it is not an obvious entrance (a chained gate). There is a gap to enter and if unsure ask the friendly locals. The start of the path down is not obvious. Down just past what looks like a dump - not off the the left.

Follow it down and soon near the top take a left fork (main path goes off slightly to the right). Follow this path all the way down. At the bottom it was confusing. A path was blocked by branches but you could see the river. There were many rotting fruit from the trees here. I made my way to the river and worked my way up river skipping from the many rocks there - dry season so very easy. I guess there is a path but it wasn't obvious.

In any case I made it fine to the bottom of these two small watefalls. Quite cool bit certainly not too impressive. The water is stagnent and there is lots of litter too...

I think there is a path that shows a higher view, but despite trying I could not see it. Go with a guide if you want to be sure - I was happy paying nothing and going it alone - it is a safe area apparently.

Hard to find, disappointing when low on water
Aug 2015 • Couples
The steep path diverged into two and unfortunately my girlfriend and I went right instead of left, that's why it took us 1,5 hours instead of 20 minutes -.- but we were lucky to see an awesome tree winding around bricks and an adventurous bridge.
As we arrived at El cubo we were highly disappointed because it was very low on water, even the tap in our hostel had more power. Nevertheless there was enough water to jump in the pool, a nice refreshment after our walk.

Bit risky

1/2 hour steep trek from village. Area is quite littered. Bit of a scramble to get to jumping point and water bit dirty. Locals very friendly and chatty. Con cuidado!
