#2 of 8 in Parks in Mindo
Pack a swimsuit before visiting Nambilla Cascadas, a set of 15 waterfalls formed by the Nambilla River and located in a cloud-forest ecological reserve. Trek the scenic trail to the waterfalls to spot the area's diverse wildlife, then dip your feet in the smaller cascades or swim in one of the bigger pools. Instead of walking, you can take a cable car and observe the surrounding forest during the ride. Bring some food and water for your trip and have a picnic next to the cascading river. By using our Mindo travel itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Nambilla Cascadas and other attractions in Mindo.

    This waterfall is the starting point of the route along the waterfalls. Itself is a pretty swimming spot but the nicer are along the route.

    Nambillo Cascades Spa offers you a level walk environment, very nice, you have a great swing on the way down, beautiful landscapes and at the end, the beauty of the river for a swim, the water is very cold! You can jump by a cascade of 12 meters, the guides get team and help to make it, I didn't, I thought it was very extreme; )

    Great hiking with awesome critters if you look for them. then you get to soak in the falls (little chilly but totally worth it).  more »
