Something not right?

Description

Entrance 50mxn/p and 30mxn/car for parking, no guide needed. Didn't have to pay any additional fee on our way here (coming from Tanchachin to El Naranjito we avoided the main entrance by taking a shortcut, from 21.847789, -99.174799 steep and grassy). On our way back nobody at the road block.
Nice walk along the clear river with plenty of possibilities for a dip, leading to the top and the bottom of the waterfall (steep ladders down). Really worth a visit!
We came here around 4pm, perfect light to see the falls (with a beautiful rainbow).
From El Naranjito rough gravel road, not really difficult, just slow going. On the last meters to the parking you have to cross the (dry) river bed (bigger stones), but you can park the car before and walk the last meters.
Open 8 - 18, you could also camp here, it . Nqis 150mxn/p

Unfortunately there was no water in the river or waterfall because of the lack of rain. Friendly locals were offering a tour in a boat to see a cenote but we preferred to follow our way to the next stop.

NO WATER RIO DRY NO WATERFALL To get here you have to pass a house compound with a gate where you have to officialy pay 20 pesos pp. When you get to the entry of the trail (this location) 50 ppp entry, 30 p per car parking. We got here around 5 pm nobody around, No water in the river, it is completely dry and not waterfall :( dry season or maybe too much water diverted to grow sugarcane . We camp for the night just along the dry river

We were a bit confused by other reviews so we wanted to provide some clarification and details after visiting!

TLDR; guide was mandatory, did a 200 peso per person boat tour, it was 5 hours long and we had lots of fun!

The entrance to the top of the falls were closed. Guy was there with a rope blocking the road. It didn’t seem sketchy, he didn’t ask for money, he just told us we couldn’t go to the top of the falls. He told us we have to visit the falls from the main village. We drove into town and stopped on the side of the road looking a bit lost. A lady from one of the tour guide venders (very friendly) approached us, welcomed us to town, and asked if we were here to see the falls. She said a guide is mandatory for seeing the falls. The guides take you on a boat tour up the river to the bottom of the falls.

Pricing was $1600 for a private tour, or $200 pesos per person if we joined a group of 8. We asked if we could join another group, she said yes, and we followed one of the guides 2 minutes down the road to the meeting point to join another group.

We parked on the side of the road next to a field (along side other cars and tour busses who were here for the tours).

We were given a life jacket, then did a short hike through the trees and fields to where the boats are located. Then we all hopped in and paddled up stream towards the falls. We paddled for almost an hour (definitely wouldn’t recommend doing a private tour… less paddlers 🤣). The river and surrounding landscape is beautiful. It’s a popular excursion, (there were quite a few boats on the water) but the boats are quite spaced out so it felt like we were alone.

When we reached the falls, we climbed out the boats onto some rocks to view them. We then had the option to cliff jump back into the river (lots of fun!) and float a little ways back down the river. On the way back, we stopped at a cenote and another waterfall which had some pools to hang out in and a few food vendors.

We had started the day expecting to park and walk up to the falls, but for the $200 pesos per person (and free parking) we thought this was well worth it.

We had a fun day!

Agree with comments below in regards to camping, route to site, cost etc. No working showers and loos were a bit dodgy, but had an outside tap.
