    Along the way on the loop, you'll come across several little water falls so refreshing you could just dive in! But don't, I'm unaware of any bacteria or parasites in the water though there are no warnings.

    Take a good look, it's nature hard at work.

    The main reason for your long drive from the middle of nowhere. Akaka Falls serves as some importance to one of the local families that live here. For them, it is a main source of business and income. Though I haven't met them, I understand a woman who dubs herself as Mrs. Akaka likes to meet the tourists.

    After viewing Kahuna, follow the suggested trail and after a few steep inclines and drops, you're at Akaka! If you thought that little hut was a rest area, you're wrong. Sorry, no benches to relax on :(

    Kahuna Falls is the lesser of the two. I hate saying that but its true! After all, the place is named after Akaka. Upon approaching the main crossroads, opt to go the suggested route and you'll see Kahuna first. For your safety, do not step out over the ledge and past the barrier. The ground is very soggy and could be hollow. Use your imagination.

    Ay dios mi! If you don't obey this sign you are stupid. Though the ground may look solid, you could be stepping into a patch of weak vines and bushes. Stay behind the green barrier at all times and don't get cute.

    Like the sign says, pay attention to where you step otherwise you'll be head over heels in no time. This place is always wet and moss grows all over the place. The walkways are old and beat up so make sure you're not stepping in a bleeding area where roots are. There are railings on most of the trail but those are slippery too. Go slowly and don't rush it if you can't. The last thing you need is medical attention in a place with no personel.

    The universal rule when leaving your car... LOCK IT. People will break in just to take the change you have sitting in your ashtray. It shouldn't be a problem but do it anyway.
