Dibulo Falls is the tallest waterfalls in the Province of Isabela located in the little town of Dinapigue — the only secluded part of Isabela province. It is located on the eastern coast side of the province facing the Pacific Ocean. Being separated by the mountain ranges of Sierra Madre from the rest of the province, the only access road going to the small town is via Dilasag, Aurora, where one has to ride an off-road vehicle due to the bumpy zig-zag roads. From Santiago City, you can also take a Dinapigue-bound mini bus that takes 12-14 hours to reach the town.

Many travelers have considered the falls as enchanting. From the main town of Dinapigue, it takes 15-20 minutes by car to reach the jump-off area where you need to have an approximately 1 kilometer trek to reach the falls. The waterfalls is so huge that you can see a strip of it cut by luscious huge trees on the mountain from the town.
