After visiting the waterfalls we spent a very enjoyable hour in a nearby small town watching and learning from an 84 year old back strap weaver and his family. Town was Agato, Beautiful tapestries.

This is by far the best outdoor walk and a must see! The waterfall is so beautiful and you can even take a Picutre with llamas!!

The sacred waterfall of Peguche is a must visit. It does get crowded so go early to avoid the pushing and shoving to get that perfect photo!

The magic of this place lies in its fantastic atmosphere. It is free, so the atmosphere is not spoiled by business interests.

While I was staying in Peguche, this is a great place to visit. You can walk a while and you will end up at the waterfall. It’s a big waterfall and a good short trip to do

It takes about 20 minutes to walk to this waterfall. Part of one path is a bit muddy. Another path had cobblestones. The fall is pretty. There’s a lot of spray off the waterfall so take something with you to cover your expensive cameras.

Beautifully maintained trails and an impressive waterfall (aren't they all?). We went on an early Wednesday morning, and it was nice to not have to be crowded (I can tell it's a tourist destination with an "artisan" market and stalls that were not open when...More

Our group enjoyed the walk to the falls watching birds on the way. There were quite a few same tourist shops at the start of the walk.

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
