Las Cataratas de Ahuashiyacu, Tarapoto

4.5
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.

  • There is a small road about 5-10 minutes before reaching the falls, is very cute. Most say all tours are in the morning then teems with people. I hired a tour with a moto-taxi and took me as at noon just time are all tours and when entering the falls I was alone with my friend, then 2 other people came but no more because it is just time for lunch then had the place only for us. The Lamas and ahuachiyacu bike tour taxi for 2 people left us 60 in total by 2. Admission to ahuachiyacu is 6 soles.

  • We had the misfortune of arriving and that started to rain so torrential. Happily we had put swimwear because above and in the place there is an appropriate place to move. Arriving there are posts of water and biscuits as well as layers for the rain. We had to buy a coat 7.5 Suns each, by the rain remove me shoes and I went up in sandals with care, we cover things with coating and then we went to the waterfall. Rain flow increased and not allowed to move much to the waterfall because it was dangerous. While they say that the rain gives another attraction is better to go with Sun, also the water is cold. Only cold m, quite tolerable is not frost.
