Choose one of three hikes. Shortest is 30 minutes longest 90. Take the shorter unless it's a cool day. Beautiful waterfalls to be seen

We took the Tarabita cable car to start our hike. It only took a few minutes and had a great view. One of the dogs at the business even hopped on for the ride across! Once you get across there are three different paths you...More

This is just a little further up (a few minutes by car?) from the usual entrance where you take the 'cable car'. It is called Balneario Nambillo. Inexpensive and reasonable fun, with a 12m jump into the river (optional) but a fair walk $3 per...More

This is a really nice walk through the jungle to see some good waterfalls. They are not huge but they are magical in the depth of the forest. Wear good footwear and bring a coat as it rained a lot when we were there. You...More

Lovely walks through the cloud forest. On the way back we saw toucans. Waterfalls are nice, but nothing special, at least when there's not much rain.

Took the Tarabita cable car across the valley and decided to take the 50 minute rather than 15 minute trek. Glad we did Up and down but not a killer. Had we walked to the 15 waterfall first I doubt we'd have gone as that...More

Loved the walk down to the waterfall. The owners have put a lot of effort into restoring the original forest... Tons of secondary growth forest with clean trails and handrails

It is a bit of a hike to get here, but worth the effort, there are several different waterfalls to see and one chooses a path depending on which one you want to see. Lots of wildlife along the way as well and possibility to...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
