Las Cataratas de Ahuashiyacu, Tarapoto
(4.5/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • It is very close to the city and the walk is short and easy. Throughout the tour is very well kept and the fall is beautiful, you can swim, jump and course take many photos. At this time there are occasional but fleeting rains, it is worthwhile to go on your own to be able to stay as long as you want since the tours give you very little time (unless private). It is advisable to go during the week because there are less people if you have luck you can even be alone
