we took a motorkar to get there, walked up and took a shower behind the waterfall. Lovely place, very touristic, but worth to visit. It is situated at one extreme of the cordillera Escaleras. Beautiful forest!

Excelent and relaxing waterfall in the middle of the jungle of Tarapoto. Really cool and fresh air. You can swim and dive into the water

The waterfall was huge and beautiful. It was great to swim in the basin in front of the waterfall. It's a short visit but a nice little walk to the waterfall.

Too many people there. Get there early (before 10) and the. You will be able to swim and enjoy it more. Quite impressive, even in a non rainy season.

Beautiful waterfall close to Tarapoto, it was a bit crowded but you could still have a little swim. It is very cheap hence lots of local people go there, changing facilities are very basic and not too clean.
