We were back by noon or so. It was a fun trip. Why anyone would climb UP a waterfall I'll never know, but we had fun doing it. It isn't as hard as you might think. My husband has breathing problems, and had no problem doing it at all. I am a clutz, and fell a few times, but I really enjoyed it, and felt it was an accomplishment. The day we did it really worked out well for us. It was raining in the morning when we left, so who cares, it was a warm rain, and we were in our bathing suits. By the time we got back, it was sunny, and the beach was waiting.
