Waterfall
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.

  • Are located between 5 to 10 minutes from Tarapoto this entry to approx. 4 Suns, entering climb step which part of them are wet by the water, surrounded by greenery, the road is between 10 minutes to reach the top where we find cataracts cute natural landscape only suitable for people with physical conditions , recommend placing chairs for waiting for people who can not increase. Bring towel and can change up without problem

  • It is a place that cannot go, is very close to the city of Tarapoto; There you can see the black toads with yellow, tiny but very poisonous

  • Impossible not to know him if these visiting tarapoto, to get there I recommend you do it with a tour whose price should not exceed 50 Suns, you have to pay an income of 10 to 15 soles depending on the season, so "simple home" takes
