This is a well-maintained park, good for strolling, with a picturesque waterfall at the end. It is not a hike. We enjoyed the walk, the local flavor, and we took some pictures at the falls. There were some shops and I think a restaurant near...More

On tour in the neighbourhood of Otavalo we visited this waterfall after an easy walk. The area is quiet and green, a short walk through an easy trail brings you right in front of the fall. Worth a visit when in this area.

A very nice, but short hike to this lovely waterfall. It was a short drive from Otavalo. There are a few shops near the entrance for shopping.

Whit only a short walk on a easy path, you will be able to enjoy the view of this beautiful waterfall. Perfect to visit with friends and family.

I think this maybe a disaster forming. The parck is nice, but extremely crafted with paths and fences. The waterfall starts naturally, but is manipulated near the bottom. Other sights at the parck seem made up (like the fertility tree) or recently made (like the...More

Peguche is a nice place near Otavalo. The waterfall is wonderful and it was not too crowded. You can walk on different paths and could have lunch as well.

Okay it's not the largest or greatest waterfall that you will ever see but when on a day trip from Quito it is a pleasant addition. It's about a 30m drop followed by smaller cascades. You get a short 10 minute walk to stretch your...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
