We start our adventure with a walk for an hour on beautiful trails in the forest to reach the Victoria waterfall, taking the picturesque scenery of the tropical forest and observing the nature that we find on the way. Once we reach the river, there is a small and steep descent to the pool of the waterfall. The impressive Victoria Waterfall falls dramatically 35 m to the Rio Negro. The surrounding canyon has unique vegetation and topography and you can swim in the crystal clear waters in the pond at the base of the waterfall. With our bilingual naturalist guide, you can continue walking the path through the tropical forest to enjoy the best views of the volcano, incredible nature, volcanic activity and wildlife. In the park there are more than 300 species of birds, and many other animals, such as armadillos, peccaries, iguanas, coatis, white-faced howler, and spider monkeys. Two twin falls called “Las Chorreras” fall in a spectacular pool of blue sky minerals. A small canyon of volcanic rock surrounds the falls and the pool, creating an intimate tropical oasis for a refreshing dip. We will also visit the La Oropéndola Waterfall. With its impressive 25 meters, it falls into a bubbling pool of turquoise color in the lush canyon of the White River, creating an incredible tropical oasis. And finally, we will see the Rio Negro waterfall, which is born from a source of thermal water.
What to bring: running shoes or strap-on sport sandals, binoculars, camera, sunscreen, sun hat.
