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!

  • 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

  • Comparto las opiniones ...excelente lugar para una buena aventura de treking. Nos guió Pedro que dice que es de algarrobo cuando requieres apoyo 😄. Bellas cascadas, aunque hay tramos difíciles es recomendable buenos zapatos....a pesar que el guía va con unas crocs!😲. Lo importante es no seguir si ya no disfrutas el vértigo.... recomendable hacer al menos los 2 primeros tramos. Lugar cuidado en cuanto al retiro de basura....hay que llegar en vehículo y lo que cobran los guias es un precio razonable. Merece la pena el esfuerzo. Encuentras piedras usadas en la molienda por los indígenas de la zona y se logran buenas fotos!

  • Extorsión y fiasco total. Fui a la oficina de turismo de Cafayate y nos dijeron que la entrada era libre y gratuita. Entonces nos arrimamos con mi esposa y mi hijo de 1 año y medio. En la entrada del Camping Divisadero, un grupo de personas, que se hicieron llamar "diaguitas calchaquies", nos quisieron cobrar 250 pesos a cada uno para llevarnos al recorrido. Le expresé que no necesitaba guía porque solo quería ver el río un momento, ya que con el bebé no iba a poder llegar hasta la última cascada. Entonces nos prohibieron la entrada; si no les pagábamos, no nos dejaban pasar. Le pregunté porque no podíamos pasar, y me dijeron que eso era territorio calchaqui, que no es de público acceso (nada que ver con lo que me habían dicho en turismo). Agregaron que ellos no son argentinos, sino que eran descendientes de no se que raza de indios. Y así fue como siendo turistas argentinos, no pudimos conocer parte de nuestro país. Luego presenté la queja en turismo e hice la denuncia policial correspondiente. Ojalá la Municipalidad de Cafayate haga algo al respecto. Me parece que a esta gente, que se dice heredera de la gran raza diaguita de antaño, solo le importaba la guita...
