Chorro El Macho
Chorro El Macho information
The most famous waterfall in the El Valle area is the 85m-high Chorro El Macho, which is located a few kilometers north of town near the entrance to the canopy tour. As its somewhat humorous name implies, this towering waterfall is more dramatic than its dainty counterpart, and makes for some excellent photographs. Here, below the falls, you’ll find a large swimming pool made of rocks, surrounded by rainforest and fed by river water. There is also a series of short hiking trails that wind into the surrounding forest.
For an unforgettable aerial view of El Macho, El Valle’s famed canopy tour is a truly hair-raising experience.
