A 5 year old is pretty young.. it takes a lot of energy not to mention some strength. The last thing you want is to have him hurt himself and you have to deal with medical care in a foreign country. Let him swim in the water near the beach with supervision while the rest of your party can enjoy the falls. He will probably rather play in the sand anyway...
