Parque Salto del Penitente, Minas
(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Trek through Parque Salto del Penitente, a park that surrounds the 60 m (196 ft) waterfall. Enjoy the fresh air as you climb to the lookout point and view the narrow, rushing cascade. The trek is short but steep, so bring suitable footwear and don't forget a bathing suit for swimming in the waterfall's natural pool. Try horseback riding provided by the park's management; or for the more adventurous the park offers ziplining and rappelling. The restaurant overlooking the waterfall serves up a couple of tasty meal options. Take a look at our Minas vacation builder to schedule your visit to Parque Salto del Penitente and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
