Salto el sapo, Canaima National Park

(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Salto el sapo and other Canaima National Park attractions into our Canaima National Park trip generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • After a canoe ride across Canaima Lagoon you get to walk for twenty minutes and then walk behind the falls. Expect to get soaked, impossible not to get wet, but well worth the tour.  more »
  • You walk between the stone wall and the waterfall. A unique sensation. Amazing photos. Recommended shoes from water and clothes that can get wet. Essential camera (with protection so that it does not get wet)
