“For the thrill seekers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Salto is one of those little secrets of the locals in Fortuna but it was easy to see after being there an hour that it is certainly becoming known by the tourists. This is a very natural atmosphere with no entrance fee, no lifeguard on duty and no one there to tell you not to be an idiot. So please use some common sense here.

That being said, if you are going to jump off the cliff, test the depth first or only jump off after seeing others do it first.

If you want to do the swing be sure to have some upper arm strength, at least enough to hold your body weight!

Loads of fun for those looking to do something you would never get to do in the states without heavy regulation and rules.

This is located under a bridge any taxi in town would know how to get you here just ask for SALTO!
