To go to Mindo is to open a door to adventure. We dare to canopy and then trek down to the cascade. A very liberating and very wet afternoon experience but so much fun. Pack your bags, have a couple of comfortable walking shoes, comfortable...More

A lovely way to spend half a day, the outing starts and ends with a short but scenic cable car ride. Then you can choose how many of the seven waterfalls you want to visit, depending on how much time and energy you have. They're...More

We visited several of the waterfalls. If you have to choose, take the path to the 5/6 consecutive waterfalls. The trails are easy. We recommend to take at least half a day and have a picnic by the waterfalls.

These waterfalls were discovered by the owner who laid the trails and opened them to the public. There is 5 waterfalls all together and many people just go to the first big one. The walk is difficult for those with immobility issues.

Yes, there is a path. A little hidden and the people selling the tickets for the Tarabita are not eager to point it out. Instead of walking Right to the ticket office, look LEFT and the path is just along the edge of a... More
