Visited the 7 Cascades before the rainy season, and so it was more like a trickle than a cascade. I joke that you probably get a higher flow of water in your shower! Still, it is a change from the usual cityscape of Sucre.

I expected so much litter based on previous review but I was more than surprised to see it not so bad along the trek. Wear hiking shoes, as it's a bit of a hike from the... More

I did a walking tour of the cascades in August of 2016 (with Condor Tours). The tour lasted from 9 - 4 and started with an unexpected visit to the dinosaur footprint wall (which had nothing to do with seeing the cascades?). Then after a short (30 minute bus ride) we started walking into the cascades. The walk was mostly... More

Loved this spot, jump from the 3rd waterfall, swim a bit a dry in the sun with a beer and picnic. Catch the red 12 bus from the central market to the last stop, the ask the locals for directions. 30 mins on the bus and 30 more to walk. Bring food and water for the day because there's usually...

The lack of water cascading disappointed me. The group chose not to climb to the look out and instead to swim at the third waterfall. Maybe if we had gone further I might have been more impressed.

We paid 250bolivian pesos each to ride a bicycles to these 7 waterfalls. The guy at the agency (imatin tours) said there was gonna be a 20minutes ride uphill and after it was gonna be flat. We asked if it was difficult because one of us has a problem with his leg. He clearly said it was EASY (and the... More

My friends and I took a public bus to the nearby village and walked. We found going down to the river which was in a valley easy as it's down but walking back was really tough as its so steep! The river is beautiful but to see the waterfalls involved climbing many rocks, even then we only saw 3 out... More

The best day in Sucre was going to the falls. I was in company of other five “foreigners.” We took a public bus to the falls and it was enjoyable experience “rubbing elbows” with the locals. There was a “good distance” walk to the falls and we saw the rubbish all over the place which made us sad as the... More

Shame that the locals seem to leave lots of rubbish everywhere. The areas where you would normally be able to sit to enjoy the sun were strewn with empty bottles and wrappers. Such a shame people don't look after this place.

We decided to visit Las Siete Cascadas after spending three days in Sucre's centre and found it to be a nice change of scenery. We took local bus number 12 from Calle Junin behind the mercado central until the last stop (Alegria) for just 1.50 BOB per person (about 45 minutes to one hour total). From there, it's difficult to... More
