Excursion to La Jalda waterfall

Do you like challenges and nature? Then you can't miss the excursion to La Jalda waterfall, the highest waterfall in the Caribbean.

Located near the town of Magua, west of Miches, this impressive waterfall of more than 120 meters is hidden in a corner of the National Park of the same name. To reach it you have to walk for almost 5 hours through cocoa forests, rainforest and rivers, discovering the secrets of a unique and spectacular landscape. Once there, you can admire its beauty, refresh yourself in the lagoon it forms and feel the power of nature. La Jalda waterfall is a hidden jewel that only a privileged few have been able to contemplate. Dare to be one of them!

This tour is ideal to spend some time with family, friends or as a couple, as long as the participants can keep up with the pace. In any case, the effort is worth it, if only to contemplate the impressive waterfall falling against the rock and forming a natural lagoon that feeds the Magua River.
