We visited this park and found it all very beautiful. The falls are incredible not so much for height, but for the fact that the water runs over volcanic, black rock. You can practically see how the lava flowed, then solidified. The park is very clean, with boardwalks and trails that allow you to see the falls from various angles. Behind the falls, Osorno Volcano seems to loom up. Just beautiful! The water in some places is a green colour. We were impressed by how organized the park was and how clean. There are public bathrooms there, which are also very clean. This park is a must to visit.

Well worth going to the park, the rapids cut through the volcanic rocks and demonstarte the power of water. The colour of the river is crystal blue and surrounding area lish and green. We were lucky with the weather as from the falls we had a stunning backdrop of snow topped volcanoes. It's an easy access , costing $2.00US to park and $4.00 to enter. The viewing points are well situated.

the scenery is just breathtaking....standing at the waterfalls while watching the green waters of the lake todos dos santos with a nice view of Osorno volcano in the background is just beautiful.

We thought this would just be a quick stop as part of our main tour of the lakes, but it was excellent and would actually be worth a visit at any time. Great photo opportunities, and decent facilities too. A real unexpected gem.

Beautiful blend of colours and very easy access. It is one of the many sights to be visited and to return to, around the Lake Llanquihue, in Puerto Varas.
