Nambilla Cascadas, Mindo
(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visit the waterfalls that are on Mindo reserve may be a little tired, it is recommended to wear suitable clothing especially some footwear that allows you to walk without problem, there are many climbs and descents to reach each of the waterfalls, can be a bit tiring but it is worth much, I recommend you also bring something to drink and something to eat not to lose energy.
