Montezuma Falls, Montezuma

4.5
#1 of 28 in Things to do in Montezuma
Take a steep but reasonably speedy 20-minute hike up the river, observing small water features, until you reach the majestic Montezuma Falls, a beautiful 24 m (78 ft) high cascade of water. Cool off in the large pool at the base of the falls, which is great for swimming, but too shallow for rock jumping. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, scramble up the rough path on the left side of the falls to a deeper pool and a second waterfall, where you can jump safely. Wear sturdy boots, as you’ll have to navigate across slippery rocks throughout the hike.

    A beautiful activity with your family near the village of Montezuma. The first basin is accessible by an easy trail to franchier. The 2nd requires a longer journey and a little more effort but we do without too much difficulty with our children of 8 and 11. Swimming is nice and beautiful site. The 3rd basin requires a greater effort but maybe reached by a trail above the falls. Sandals closed that can go in the water are a good option. MORE: Less than a kilometre from the main street, accessible to all, a beautiful trek fall with swimming and jumping of the masks. LESS: He must choose his day during the rainy season to make bathing enjoyable and more accessible trail. COST: Free of charge. Parking $ 2 if by car.
