The hike is not long, but probably not appropriate on a wet day due to the nature of the trail. Bring currency in EC, otherwise you will be overcharged if you use US dollars.

Spanny falls is a great choice if you are looking for a relatively easy hike (15 minutes or so) on a well-maintained trail and a waterfall that doesn't get a lot of traffic. You will see people here, but not even remotely close to the...More

After a 10-15 min walk through beautiful rainforest you arrive at the fall. You cannot visit he second fall. It's so much worth the visit because you are most likely the only person to visit at that moment.
