(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Hike along the Colorado River to Cascadas del rio colorado, an 8 m (26 ft) waterfall suspended between two boulders. The hike takes some climbing, mostly along the riverbed.

Bring suitable footwear and prepare for a challenging trek, as some parts are quite steep and riddled with rocks.

  • We hire the trip through an agency, and not explained much of what it was. We would have liked to explain us was physically quite plaintiff. I think that we just had bad luck with the guide that we had. It is insecure and does not help people. While the landscapes are very nice, we ended up very sore. They also warned us we bring good Footwear and that it may become wet. Take into account that should climb along stone paths, steep, and cross rivers, so wear good shoes (hiking type) and that it may become wet. I had made this trip seven years ago and the experience was much better this time, but I reiterate, is key to touch you a good guide, and this time was not the case.

  • After reading a lot of reviews we were with a friend, join a group of 4 with a guide, there is no marked trail so if you want to get to what they call the seventh waterfall must go with a guide, but we can walk beside the river and stay in some waterfalls to drink mate or hang out. The road is not difficult especially to the fourth waterfall, anyone can do it because it is a simple walk, wear shoes that can get wet because they have to go across many times the river. After the fourth must climb a path a bit steep and narrow so I do not recommend it for people that you have vertigo, I think it's the more "complicated" road but not for both. After the road is normal, will s have to climb some rocks but the guide helps them. The seventh waterfall is spectacular. It takes approximately two hours to get back a little less. Some of the 7 are not waterfalls but jumps. I recommend the hike, the landscapes are very cute and there is lots of green.

  • We drove by car to the entrance and took a guide. Without guide it is both impossible to find your way, on the other hand for all falls much too dangerous. In order to enjoy the track, one must be necessarily afraid of heights and throw all European safety standards on board. You climb on the bare rocks, no climbing AIDS, protection or helmets. You can stand just all over the place, but the Director is keen, where one attacks and has one at, not to mention on the three point grip. Partly the leaders help each other to all tourists safely over the sensitive spots to bring. Were in all eight cases of water and needed 4 hours, was a great experience, be sure to recommend you.
