Ideal for tourists into hiking and outdoor adventures, the trek to Salto del Tabaquillo requires a serious scramble up a path that follows a river and passes a string of smaller waterfalls. The main falls tumble over a vegetated cliff into a base pool, where you can swim and cool off. Hiring a tour guide is recommended unless you already know the trail.

  • The walk to reach the jump isn't very hard but I would not recommend it for very elderly or small children because there is the risk of falls by having to walk through rocks and cross small streams. It takes half an hour from the beginning of the trail to reach the waterfall and the other for the return. The jump is very cute in a nice closed setting. On the wall opposite the waterfall there is a wall that can scale to take pictures of the place. Do not miss this visit which can be guided or own-account.

  • It is a trip that can be done by account itself or well, hiring her. We hired her in the nature reserve. Bear in mind that it is a rather demanding, uphill trekking, skipping stones, crawling through narrow cracks in the mountain, etc. There are 4 or 5 breaks before the jump of Tabaquillo and when you arrive, you can choose to make climbing on the rock wall of the jump. Take shelter beyond that heat, make up always is fresh, and always water and a snack, the bottle can be charged different jumps that are reaching the Tabaquillo. Recommended!

  • Circuit adventure over the Creek uphill until you reach the waterfall. Fun tour, beautiful landscape and a wonderful to rest and recover for the return destination. I recommend take sunscreen, some fruit, a snack, water, bathroom, comfortable slippers and hat costume.
