Las Cataratas de Ahuashiyacu, Tarapoto
(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Let the cool, refreshing water of Las Cataratas de Ahuashiyacu cascade over your head and into the shallow basin below. The waterfall stands 40 m (131 ft) tall, comprised of a single rush of water plunging into the natural swimming pool at its base. Large, moss-covered boulders and lush greenery surround the waterfall, lending it a magical atmosphere. There are plenty of orchids and ferns to be seen, as well as butterflies, insects, and birds. Don't forget your swimsuit--the waterfall makes for an excellent diving platform and swimming hole.
