Recommendations and tips for visiting the Rodeo Falls

If it has caught your attention and you want to organize a visit to this natural treasure, pay attention to some practical recommendations to visit the Rodeo waterfall:

  • Wear comfortable and cool clothing, which favors perspiration to avoid excessive sweating. The ideal is to wear cotton or natural fabrics, and avoid wearing synthetic clothing that can cause discomfort, especially when it is very hot.
  • In addition to clothing, footwear is essential for trouble-free walking. Choose suitable footwear that has good grip and allows the foot to move. If, in addition to good support, they are light, so much the better.
  • Protect yourself from the sun's rays by wearing a cap or hat. It is also important that you use sunscreen on your skin, and that you apply it regularly throughout the day.
  • In addition, make sure you carry enough water in your backpack to maintain good hydration. And don't wait until you feel thirsty to drink, because when you feel thirsty it means your body is already dehydrating. If you do this excursion with your family, pay special attention to the children so that they also hydrate regularly and make the trip in good conditions.
  • Use insect repellent to protect yourself against mosquitoes and other organisms that proliferate in areas with tropical flora and climate. Make sure that the repellent does not affect the environment and that it only prevents insects from getting close to you. Apply it several times during the day to maintain a good degree of protection.
  • If in addition to hiking you plan to take a dip in Rodeo waterfall pond, something you will almost certainly want to do, don't forget to bring a bathing suit and towel to enjoy the dip.
  • Don't forget to capture the moments and save the beautiful images that nature has to offer along the way. You will surely miss your camera if you don't take it with you on this adventure.
  • Respect nature and enjoy the trail without interfering with the environment. Do not litter of any kind, and make sure you leave everything in the same condition in which you found this paradise.
