Great place to visit, and it's free. However you can leave a donation. Waterfalls were beautiful. If you like camping you can do this here as well. Not far from Otavalo.

This is a sacred waterfalls of the Quechua Indians. They gather here once a year to 'take the waters' and perform traditional ceremonies. It is gorgeous and an easy walk to take in the spectacular views.

This waterfall is easily accessible along a stone walkway. The views are spectacular! There is a bridge spanning the river from which there are excellent vantages for photos, as well as side trails.

it is a nice little walk if you have plenty of time but don't expect an amazing nice waterfall. Especially when you're coming from Mindo you will be disapointed.
