All reviews cable car nice hike worth the effort trail head large waterfall bring a bathing suit rope swing health and safety cloud forest natural beauty long hike day trip an adventure zip line falls taxi trek
The hike has a lot of climbs, but the nature is stunning. I only wish we had had more time to see more. We only had a couple of hours, including the terabita ride, and my kids had so much fun swimming at the first...More
A nice trip for a few hours. I recommend taking a taxi to the cable cart, if you want you can easily walk back to Mindo. A ride to or from is 6 dollars per taxi. Take enough water and food. Don't forget a bathing...More
Our hostel told us we could see all 7 falls in 3 hours. The guy at the telebita told us 5 hours for all 7. In reality, it took us over 4 hours round trip just to go to Cascada Reina! We're older and not...More
We were not expecting to spend the whole day and had we known to bring snacks/water/lunch we would have stayed much longer and seen more waterfalls. As it was, we were there for over 6 hours, hiking, swimming and enjoying a lifetime experience. We can't...More
The highlight here was the tram that whisked us across a massive hilly and tree-lined gorge to the start of the hike. From there, the trail was lush and green and opened up to several beautiful pools and waterfalls. I wish we had more time...More
This is the place to go if you want a shot of natural adrenaline. The main attraction of this waterfall is the 12 m plunge on top of a metal board to the rushing water below. If that’s not for you, they also have a...More
I miss the chiva that used to take you up to the trailhead for $2. It's going to cost you $6 each way now but that's progress......
Last time my wife and I visited we only walked to the Cascada Nambilla. This time we took...More
We had a great time on a clear day in April (with kids 10-14). We took a cab to the entrance but could have walked from town (would probably take about 30 minutes but is all uphill). The cab driver will return if you ask...bank...More
Yes, there is a path. A little hidden and the people selling the tickets for the Tarabita are not eager to point it out. Instead of walking Right to the ticket office, look LEFT and the path is just along the edge of a... More
Yes, there is a path. A little hidden and the people selling the tickets for the Tarabita are not eager to point it out. Instead of walking Right to the ticket office, look LEFT and the path is just along the edge of a wall - a little snack shop borders it.
Yea you'd definitely have time. We did the same. Did the 10 canopy zip-line then went to the waterfalls. We did only do to the first big waterfall though, because we didn't wake up until late (wake up early that was our... More
Yea you'd definitely have time. We did the same. Did the 10 canopy zip-line then went to the waterfalls. We did only do to the first big waterfall though, because we didn't wake up until late (wake up early that was our mistake) Give yourself at least two hours if you want to see more than just the first one. Also, last bus from Mindo to Quito leaves at 5 pm. We had to run to make it.
