This waterfall is easily accessible along a stone walkway. The views are spectacular! There is a bridge spanning the river from which there are excellent vantages for photos, as well as side trails.

Peguche was a fun trip. Only 4 stars because the locals are more focused on extracting money from tourists than providing good information and experience.

You could get a taxi, it would probably cost you $5.00. Walking is far an the bus would leave you in the road where you would still need to walk. Either way, the route is from the market towards the Panamericana road via... More
