It is definitely a hike to get to these falls. A lot of the way was wet and very slippery. However the falls are worth the hike. It is a tough hike, coming back up is brutal after going down.

A beautiful trail in the woods to a beautiful waterfall. It is a lovely woods trail that ends at a bridge which crosses the river for additional views of the waterfall. Some people went swimming in the river by the bridge. It will take about 1 hour or more depending on how long you stay for pictures. We did not... More

Its a great hike. When you take the cable car across the valley you have an option to take the path to the right or to the left. We took the path to the right. it leads to one large waterfall and is about an hour hike to the fall. Absolutely worth the hike. Others we were with took the... More

one of the most beautiful places I have seen... It's an easy way down but be ready for the hike going back up it's brutal. But definitely well worth it!

After doing the zip lining my mom and I decided to walk up the hill to the cable car hoping to hitchhike...... Bad idea..... Sorry mom..... Nobody ended up driving past us until right at the end near the attraction, so we never ended up hiking to the waterfalls because we were bagged, but the cable car is definitely worth... More

If you go to Mindo, you must do this hike to the various waterfalls in the area. They are all quite different and really give you a sense that you have arrived in the cloud forest. For the most part, it is not a terribly difficult hike, but there are parts that are more challenging for those less athletic. Each... More

We left at 08:30 from our hostel and arrived at the cable car around 09:30, the cable wasn't running because a treee had fallen down on the road so we waited for 20 min and the guys running came to the tarabita and we were the first ones out to the cascadas. It was really cool, we had all the... More

Loved riding the Tarabita (cable car- check how it is powered) to the area of the falls. Climbing, scrambling and swimming was the order of the day. Trails and crossing are slippery are wouldn't be suggested to the more frail traveller. The family thought the flora and mountainous rainforest more breathtaking than our previous stay at an Amazon Eco Lodge.

We took the open cable car ride (excellent) and hiked to the Falls. They are spectacular and well worth the walk - take it slowly, you're high up, it's muddy and therefore can be slippery and wet too.

I hiked with a group of fellow SCUBA divers in the cloud forest. Most of us are very fit, but several turned around after the hike proved to be more treacherous in the rain than anyone would have liked. It was quite slippery, and it was not an easy hike. As a background, I often hike 12-14 miles per day... More
