When To Go

The Park can be visited every day of the year, but the best time to visit the plateau is in the winter, when there is less rain, the paths are safer to walk and the view of the valley is privileged by the clear skies. While the lower regions can be enjoyed all year round, the greater incidence of rain in summer not only swells the waterfalls adding to their natural beauty, it also adds to their natural danger, keeping in mind the risk of flash floods and sudden surges of water from storms upriver.

Visitation Schedules

The admission times are different for the Plateau and the lower regions of the park:

  • On the plateau- admission is from 07h00 to 14h30. Visitors are permitted to stay no later than 18h00.
  • In the lower regions- the schedule for admission starts at 08h00, and visitors can stay until 17h00.
