“Nice waterfall - nice walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This isn't Niagara Falls - but is is nice. A walk in the woods. Some local colour and shops. Walking trails and not too much commercialization. The price is right too - free.

“Great falls... great trails... why not?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Excellent FREE park which includes the falls themselves as well as a bunch of trails you can zig zag on to your heart's delight. It's about a 30/40 minutes pleasant walk from town... just follow the railroad tracks!

“A nice little stop along the way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I wouldn't make this a destination but it is a nice stop on the way to doing something else. There is a path (cobblestone) to the falls and two bridges there to observe them. It also looks like there is a campground here.

“Nice little waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

If you have some free time in Otavalo, but not enough time to explore much of the surrounding, Peguche Waterfall is a nice little spot for a short walk in a pretty Eucalyptus forest. The nearby village of Peguche is also pretty with some handicrafts workshops. Both the entrance to the waterfall and the village can be easily reached by public bus from Otavalo, by cab, or walking for about 30min.

“Get in!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

If you're in Otovalo, try to make it out here for a bit. Gorgeous, but the real treat is getting went and getting in the waterfall itself ! Super powerful. Easy to visit, good cause supports local people.
