The Nauyaca Waterfalls

The Nauyaca Waterfalls are located in a canyon approximately eight meters wide.

One of the falls is forty-five meters high in free fall and the other, twenty meters high with a tiered fall, forming at the bottom a 1,000 square meter and six meter deep pool. There are also other smaller natural pools where visitors can seize the opportunity and enjoy the waters with their families or friends.
