Waterfall
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.

  • While it is true that access to the falls has a degree of difficulty, well pay have made the effort since the experience is very interesting, we only went to the casacade of Nambilla, passing first through a cable car that crosses a river, arriving at the end of the cable car station, begins the descent towards the waterfall , even though it is true that the path to the waterfall is steep, it should be noted that in many sections there are railings to avoid fallsor. Luegao of more or less between 45 min to 1 hour will arrive to a picturesque bridge from which dse can appreciate the beautiful waterfall of Nambilla, as seen from an angle gives you the impression of being a door in the middle of the agua.realente the effort is worthwhile. On the way he meets many tourists of different nationalities who are directed to photograph the beautiful landscapes and landscapes provided by the sector with special photography equipment. The ascent is although it seems easier than down rare and passing along the path you can see a large number of rare plants as well as beautiful flowers some types of orchids and much wildlife of a different type. IE is a cute site that cannot fail to admire for a trip to the sector, nearby waterfall deesta there are many others but more distant and the oersona that can walk without difficulty according to comments, they are of the most beautiful. If you are Mindo don't miss them.

  • The hike down to the falls is easy, but the hike up is HARD. can't swim in the waterfall during rainy season - the Rapids are too fast  more »
  • It is pure nature, walk long, for elderly not recommended because it is a strong walk must be down and climb Hill, bring swimsuit to take advantage of the River, beautiful waterfall, wear strong shoes as you can get wet.
