Valencia Brook's Waterfalls, Santa Marta
(4.1/5 based on 95+ 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. 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.

  • Beautiful waterfalls of cold water, excellent place to enjoy a day of nature, a little hidden, have to walk half an hour between trees and the River, is a pleasant walk. Recommendation: wear comfortable tennis by the passage of the river which has many stones that can be uncomfortable. Along the way there are sales of food, drinks, significant comorar hence, why to reach the waterfalls there is no sales at all. I could reach the waterfalls also on horseback by 10000. Super recommended this place.

  • Gorge and waterfalls Valencia are about 4 km before the Buritaca cabins. worth, when there is water in the rivers, visiting these waterfalls, takes 20 to 30 minutes, in the forest, with indigenous vendiendos all of the muchilas until you coca. But reaching the waterfall, the most interesting is up right hand in the forest to reach the tiny pools full of small fish in water critalina.
