Definitely a hidden gem! So gorgeous and remote! You walk down an old cobbled path and stumble upon a gorgeous waterfall. There are several ways to hike to it, but we took the low easy walk method. Definitely would recommend this as a stop to...More

The waterfall is beautiful, but the path to the waterfall if actually what I like the most. It s a 5-7 minute hike from the parking lot. Make sure you visit.

The waterfall is beautiful and the walk there is easy. There are other things to do in the area like some cool bridges. I don't like the other reviews saying it's not a great waterfall. It's NATURE! It's gorgeous! It's green! I do however completely...More

Great place to visit, and it's free. However you can leave a donation. Waterfalls were beautiful. If you like camping you can do this here as well. Not far from Otavalo.

The Peguche Waterfall is a pretty nice waterfall, but I would not describe it as one of Ecuadors highlights. It is easy accessible trip from Otavalo and the Waterfall can be quite big if it rained a lot in the last weeks, otherwise it is...More

Really close from Otavalo the Peguche waterfalls are a beautiful place to visit if you like green areas and not in the mood for extremely long walks. They have camping area, parking lots, small pools to swim and all the place is well signaled. The...More

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
