Get away from the heat with a hike to Cascada Escondida, a waterfall hidden in the cypress forest near the small town of El Bolson. Descend the well-marked gravel path through the peaceful wooded area, enjoying the lush vegetation and the picturesque trail with wooden railings. Admire the view of the rushing cascade protruding from the stone cliff, or cool off swimming at the waterfall's base. Take some scenic photographs, have a picnic, or try the delicious raspberry smoothies from the snack kiosk.

    Also with a little signposted access. They charge a $30 entry for seniors and $15 under 12, under 6 free. The truth is that as all cascade draws attention but is not something that dazzle. There is a kiosk, but I thought it was something expensive.

    We could not enjoy much since we went with little girls and it was very cold on arrival. But it is worth not paved path to see the waterfall.
