Chorros de la Calera, Juayua

Hire a guide to take you down to the manmade falls at Chorros de la Calera. Built to provide power for the nearby town, and utilizing the volcanic aspects of the area, the falls are set in dense forest. After your walk, cool off and bathe beneath the shower of water. The uneven terrain demands strong and sturdy footwear. Note that robbery has been reported here; bring a reliable local guide as the area is not attended by officials.

  • It is not too hard to get to these waterfalls. They are nice. I do recommend you go when there are more people around. We went on a Saturday and there were lots of people. I never felt unsecured.  more »
  • We arranged a trip to the 7 waterfalls through our hotel. The tour guide was excellent and the tour was well worth it. It was tough at times but the experiences during the tour made it! A swim in the ...  more »
  • The waterfalls are easily accessible and offer the opportunity to refresh yourself in the cool waters next to the (really) little hike. Who is reasonably well on foot, should definitely abandon the tuktuk and start instead rather early in the morning to 8 o'clock (firstly, it is still not so hot, and secondly you have then own the pools for himself). I have the trip Guide (hostel anahuac) made ($5), what is not actually necessary (we ran on a small path near the road, which was not spectacular but maybe more beautiful than the road). To support the tourism there, it certainly was the right decision. Time approx. 3 hours.

  • This place is also a must-see when you’re in El Salvador especially in Santa Ana. When we got here during the week there was absolutely nobody but the friends we came with. The water was nice and cold, beautiful for the hot weather. Plus the water was very clean and the scenery was spectacular
  • Great place to enjoying whit family and friends
  • Good trip on stairs to a beautiful fall
  • Absolutely beautiful place. You can swim in the cool waters at the bottom of the waterfall. Which is amongst beautiful rainforest. Car parking is available but it is a tough walk down the dirt road. Recommend catching a Tuk Tuk down to the entry and back to your car later. It's it about $3 US each way. The walk from the entry to the water fall is a little rough with stairs only to part of the track. Wheel chairs and prams would not be able use this track. I've been 2 times and loved it.
  • Amazing, simply breathtaking. Water felt sooooo cold but fresh. Had to hike about ten minutes to get there. Definitely recommend to leave your car in town and rent a moto taxi for about $6 both ways. If you try to book a tour it's about $10 per person. We only made it to the second waterfall, a local said that going to the third one was a bit riskier and was way further down.
