Welcome to Northern Carchi

One place worth checking out is Grutas de la Paz, where you’ll find a famous grotto converted to a chapel as well as thermal springs (open Thursday to Sunday) and waterfalls within easy reach by foot. Other notable sights include the waterfalls at Las Cascadas de Paluz, 3km north of San Gabriel.

An example of the unique Afro-Andean culture is bomba music, a blend of driving African drums and plaintive highland notes.
