Ended up here because my travel companions vetoed the pools at the Luna Runtun ($20/pp). We went in the early afternoon and the cost was $2/pp. We brought swim caps and towels from our hotel so no extra charges. All signs were in Spanish and...More

This waterfall is in the heart of the city next to the thermal baths. We visited the Monday of carnival so it was very crowded. There is a very nice hotel across the street with a spa and cafe - Hotel Sangay.
