Welcome to El Saltón
Basking in well-earned eco-credentials, El Saltón is a tranquil mountain escape in the Tercer Frente municipality. Hills that once echoed with the sound of crackling rifle fire now reverberate to the twitter of tropical birds. Secluded and hard to reach, it consists of a lodge, a hilltop mirador (viewpoint) and a 30m cascading waterfall with an adjacent natural pool ideal for swimming. Eco-guides can offer horseback riding, hiking to thermal baths or tours into the nearby coffee and cocoa plantations. Alternatively, you can just wander off on your own through myriad mountain villages with alluring names such as Filé and Cruce de los Baños. While access is difficult, the reward is ample for nature lovers. Check the state of the waterfall with Cubamar in Santiago, it can seasonally run dry.
