Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dangerous when wet! Muy peligroso en la lluvia! First, the sign for El Cielo is/was missing (Feb. 2022), resulting is us walking 30 minutes past the location in the rain (to El Paraiso, not the same place - but they have great signs). When we did arrive, one tired, wet hour later than planned, the grounds were muddy and slippery and the pools were cappuccino muddy brown too. Not heavenly. Worse, however - their trail banisters (handrails), along steep, treacherous dirt paths where you will likely need a handrail to navigate safely, are made of bamboo WHICH HAS REALLY DANGEROUS THORNS EMBEDDED IN IT. The handrail - "pasamanos" - "pass" + "hands" in Spanish - is in fact absolutely dangerous to use with your hands! Probably Colombian Thorny Bamboo. My friend ripped her hand open using them and needed ten stitches ("puntadas" en espanol)! Bamboo is a great building material and I understand that budgets are limited but it seems irresponsible not to have trimmed the thorns to protect everyone's children, grannies, adults, etc. We were very grateful for the little hospital in Capurgana. It was closed but we called the number on the door and a nurse came in ten minutes and quickly and efficiently stitched my friend's hand. Gracias muchisimo. It's probably better when it's not raining...but it's a rainforest and rains often, so - please fix your handrails.

Nice place to visit.
We could walk through the forests, rivers and we swan in natural pools.
In Capurgana the food is very delicious for example I remember they sold plantains with tuna and corn and and it has many delicious restaurants.
I loved it a tourist rout when I walked a lot to get to a natural pool in a waterfall in middle of the vegetation.

The place can be reached walking or on horse. Nice place to visit. You should bring swimming suit to be a le to swim in the water if you are up to it. There is a very good restaurant there.

Great place to hike and enjoy nature. It’s an easy walk mostly with a steeper climb to the mirador. Follow the road out past the airstrip and you will arrive at the entrance where you will pay a 5 mil fee.

The ballad to el Cielo from the center is extremely depressing with tons of garbage and badly treated horses everywhere. The end point was definitely not worth it, the view isn’t that great and there is not a “cascada” but just a tiny pool that hardly felt natural.
Skip it and make the hike to sapzurro instead

Beautiful walk. Pools for fresh water swim. Entrance fee 3000 pesos. Very relaxing. Take a lunch and spend some time.

Can’t recommend this highly enough. Such a stunning jungle hike with river crossings (ankle deep) ending with a gorgeous fresh water pool at the top, with rubber dinghies and a zip line for a really fun and refreshing time! Bring cash for the $3,000 entrance fee at the top, plus more if you want to buy food or drink up there.

After extensively traveling South and Central America, you see many waterfalls and natural pools. So it is easy to disregard places and benchmark.

I left Capurgana in search of El Cielo just for a bit of exercise and the prospect of a refreshing swim. My expectations were exceeded! It was a good walk, not too well signposted, which is fun and felt like a mini adventure.

Once I arrived, I walked to the main waterfall, it wasn't huge, but it was a good depth and it was very refreshing and picturesque. I was the only one there which was nice. There is a small restaurant there which was good value and served nice food (Tuna and tomato patacones). What's even nicer are the small monkeys in the area :)

Long walk, but totally worth it if you manage to go when it's not full of people. Where tennis shoes as you will have to cross the river 7 times and it is full of rocks.
