Salto el sapo, Canaima National Park

#2 of 14 in Things to do in Canaima National Park
Climb behind a roaring waterfall at Salto el sapo. As you approach the waterfall you'll get a grand view of the falls, but you can also snap photos from the observation areas above and below the falls. The biggest attraction here is the path going behind the waterfall. Be prepared as the water comes down with a lot of force, and be sure to keep hold of the guide rope to stay safe on the slippery path. Wear a bathing suit and waterproof your belongings before going under, as you are sure to get wet.

  • Wow!
  • Best tour in Canaima
  • Definitely one of the best experiences in terms of visits of waterfalls. It is located on the edge of the lagoon of Canaima. Naturally, in the rainy season, a tunnel is formed with the passage of water. You travel down and gives you the opportunity to see a ceiling of water while you feel the rustling of the same. Simply spectacular, is an experience that you will never forget.
