  • Not the greatest waterfalls but if you have a spare morning it is worth the pleasant walk along the railway tracks to get there. Will be better viewing in wet season when flowers blossom.
  • It's about an hour or more walk from Aguas Calientes, but it's beautiful.
  • Wonderful hiking, through the natural park, forest and along the series of beautiful waterfalls. While here in Aguas Calientes, Peru make are to spend a few lovely hours here!! I found this via local Tour Guide Jose Quilla Huaman, he's fantastic!
  • Wonderdul stay far from the agitation of Aguas Calientes. Don't forget to visit the botanic garden, it's a nice walk in the rain forest!
  • Very unfriendly staff! Sended us away while we tried to organize our staff because it started raining really bad. They didnt let us stay under there roof for 1 second!!!
