Valencia Brook's Waterfalls, Santa Marta

(110+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Valencia Brook's Waterfalls and other Santa Marta attractions using our handy Santa Marta travel itinerary maker.
