This waterfall is easily accessible from Otavalo. We walked there from the city centre in under an hour and took a bus back. The waterfall and the surrounding forest area is quite beautiful, however there was quite a lot of trash lying around. There are...More

The short easy walk to the falls was very nice and filled with the smell of the pine trees. The falls are very pretty. If you are already in Otavalo this is worth the trip. I wouldn't go hours out of the way to get...More

Nice wide path to the waterfall, easy grade, but it is cobblestone, so good shoes are needed. There are a pair of llamasat the viewpoint and you can take your picture with them.

The waterfall itself was cool to see. Personally I thought it would be bigger, so I was a little disappointed. We also visited on a Saturday after a holiday, so it was especially crowded. So many people taking pictures, it was hard to get up...More

This waterfall is tucked away in the cool realm of the rain forest. The path leading to the waterfall was hand laid with rock. The smell of eucalyptus allows for a serene experience. It was a national holiday on the day we visited, so it...More

This waterfall is nice but not amazing. The way to the fall is not steep but it demands some walking.

Definitely a hidden gem! So gorgeous and remote! You walk down an old cobbled path and stumble upon a gorgeous waterfall. There are several ways to hike to it, but we took the low easy walk method. Definitely would recommend this as a stop to...More

The waterfall is beautiful, but the path to the waterfall if actually what I like the most. It s a 5-7 minute hike from the parking lot. Make sure you visit.

The waterfall is beautiful and the walk there is easy. There are other things to do in the area like some cool bridges. I don't like the other reviews saying it's not a great waterfall. It's NATURE! It's gorgeous! It's green! I do however completely...More

You could get a taxi, it would probably cost you $5.00. Walking is far an the bus would leave you in the road where you would still need to walk. Either way, the route is from the market towards the Panamericana road via... More
