The most famous waterfall in the El Valle area is 35m-high Chorro El Macho, which is located about 2km north of town; it's a 10-minute walk from the road and the entrance to the Canopy Adventure tour. Below the falls you’ll find a large rocky swimming pool surrounded by rainforest and fed by river water. There is also a series of short hiking trails that wend their way into the surrounding forest.
As its somewhat humorous name implies, this towering waterfall is quite forceful and makes for some excellent photographs. El Valle’s famed canopy tour offers an unforgettable aerial view of Chorro El Macho.
