  • We went with my husband and my 3 children of 13, 9 and 6 years old. We must hire a safe this is indispensable guide that are experienced because there is a path clear and the guide knows where pass. We did 4 waterfalls, over 2 hours of walking between the two sections. In the most difficult places the Guide took my little daughter in her arms and then we came to look for help. It should have relatively good physical condition and wear good shoes or hiking boots. We are not experienced in the issue but could do so. The kids were happy. Go rested with low weight and carry water. In winter there is little water and stones can step on and gets hot. In summer he told us the guide that is getting into the water. Highly recommended for those who come from the city looking for contact with nature.

  • If you like trekking not miss it. They need Guide to be safer. We only did to the waterfall 2 (an hour and a half) and it was great.

  • A great option of stroll in Cafayate ... this city is impressive porq it rains only in the month of January, so even in winter during the day has lots of sunshine! I did the ride falls twice while I was in town the first time we got to the penultimate guide-free, and the second time we paid a guide to take us to the last! Particularly enjoyed it more without the Guide (and a few friends tbm complained of guides that make the waterfalls).. You can find several cabritinhas by the way, many cacti, few treks and a lot of walking!! Adoreiii ...
