Cascada Los Caballeros


The most impressive waterfall in the area, Los Caballeros is a thunderous high-volume wall of water tumbling off a spectacular 90m-high cliff in three stages. It's a one-hour drive on an unpaved road from town; the road passes very close to the falls so there's no need to hike far.
