If you're planning on visiting Nauyaca Waterfalls, I highly recommend traversing via horseback. We passed many hikers along the way and unfortunately the beaten path isn't too scenic. With that being said, the ride to the falls and back was nice and relaxing with a...More

Wonderful! Took the truck ride up there! The falls were amazing. Lots of stairs up and down. You could also take the hike or a horseback ride to the falls! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

The ride was nice-definitely better than hiking yourself and the guides were very friendly. Waterfall was beautiful and my son climbed the ropes to jump about a dozen times! Loved it!
