TAMANIQUE WATERFALLS

Las Cascadas de Tamanique is a series of waterfalls -from few meters to more than forty meters high- along El Sunzal river, up in El Bálsamo mountain range.
It is a short walk among cornfields and forest to reach the river and the first pond. Here you can jump into the cool waters and recover your breath before the next one with more than 20 meteres high.
If you’re brave enough (and conditions allow it) you can reach the highest of them all after a challengin hike (and climb) in the gore.
Don’t forget your swim suit and towel.
