Definitely do this route using a mountainbike (5-10 USD incl. Helmet). During this bike-ride you will see several waterfalls and pass some restaurants. At the end you can visit the "devils cascade" which is really worth a visit. The road is mainly descending so don't...More

32 waterfalls along the route, plenty of places to do extreme sports, you can fish for trout and they’ll prepare it for you in a bunch of places. Spectacular and worth doing!

We made 20 km of the Ruta de las cascadas by bike and saw many beautiful waterfalls. You can stop in different place to have lunch or simply enjoy the landscape.

We were here in late May, the rainy season and the water was rushing everywhere. The main route, E30, had several smaller falls along with the main large falls across the rivers. The only issues were the rock slides temporarily closing the road. Other than...More
