Valencia Brook's Waterfalls, Santa Marta

(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Bask in the pristine, refreshingly cool cascades of Valencia Brook's Waterfalls. The fresh water at the falls acts as a huge reward for the 15-20 minute trek it takes to get to this hidden gem from the town. Though the waterfalls themselves are smaller than other falls in the country, the large, crystal clear pools of water they form are excellent for swimming in. Climb further up the rocks for better and better swimming conditions the higher up you go. No need to overdo sunscreen as this area is naturally canopied by leafy trees.

  • Beautiful hike from the road, in the kilometer 56 of the via of Santa Marta to Riohacha, to the West of the PNNtayrona, before Buritaca. There is that walk by between them Woods evergreen tropical, crossing several times this broken of bedding sandy and Crystal, with fish elusive. Upon arrival you will find a rocky slope, azuloza grey to whitish at the base of very old rocks. It is full of waterfalls and pools, for a refreshing bath. Recommended!

  • A beautiful place, we went without expectations and take back a great memory, is not within the Tayrona, but in the same forest where low a stream of the Sierra Nevada, forming pools where you can see small fish of river... a must... You must arrive early in high season.
