We went there as a part of our tour to Otavalo. Nice addition to the day trip. A relaxing short walk will take you on a pebble road through Eucalyptus trees, ending at the waterfall. We saw some camping spots on the way. Would be...More

This waterfall is just outside of Peguche which is next to Otavalo. I walked from Otavalo but you can take a bus or taxi. Worth the walk as you move into a rainforest in the middle of a green valley

If you’re hanging out around Ibarra, these waterfalls are good option to see some nature and get a picture with an alpaca!

Nice chance to get out and be with nature. Easy walk on pavement and cobblestones to waterfall. You can close and get a nice shower to cool you off. Wear quick dry clothes. At the top, a worker brought out a couple llamas. We were...More

Take the short hike along a walled cobble stoned path. Lots to see along the way as you pass a campground and a small settlement. You can view the falls from a small bridge below the falls or climb to the top on some steep...More

Nice nature, but compared to all the other amazing places in Ecuador this place is just ok. It was an easy walk on the pavement trail to the bottom of the waterfall, but if you would like to see it from the top, you have...More

Went here after going to otavalo, about 20-30 minutes from the town. Very nice walk. A lot of stairs and a little steep but very doable cause not very far from the entrance. Doesn’t cost anything only voluntary funds. Very pretty loved the waterfall and...More

Easy 10 minute walk on cobblestone for kids. Little places to find lunch and locally made items. If you stand right at the falls you get a bit moist from the spray. Longer walks available along the trails.

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
