Once you arrive in Santa Cruz, you can take a jeepney to Pagsanjan for ₱10 per person (as of March 2008).
Take the jeepney to the tourism office they will direct you to the river and find you a boatman.
Alternatively, you can take a motorized tricycle direct from the bus terminal to the boating station for ₱20 per person (as of January 2009), saving the walk from the tourism office to the falls. You can now buy tickets directly at the boat stations.
