Rio Colorado - Review

This is an amazing hike to 5 striking waterfalls. While you have to walk 6 kilometers southwest of town, a 1.5 hour long hike upstream will take you to the waterfall where you can swim and splash. Look out for the hidden paintings on your expedition and have fun!

Rio Colorado, Cafayate Reviews

  • everone who enjoys being outside and can climb a little bit it is a must have... its really beautiful und u can swim under the waterfalls and jump from cliffs (a little dangerous tho) and the climbing is fun even tho there are some rather hard passages.

  • Definately use a guide. Very tough way thru the mountains.

  • So called guides try to rip you off, waterfalls are so-so

  • Precioso! Llegamos hasta la 3era de las 7 cascadas. Ir con buen calzado e idealmente con guía para q los ayude, algunos trechos son mas complicados que otros. Lindisimos paisajes bordeando el río

  • Impresionante recorrido a través de tierras Diaguitas llenas de magia, aventura y belleza. Baja dificultad si se hace con guía. Dificultad media para hacer el camino solos.
