Salto del Tabaquillo, Merlo

4.7
#4 of 19 in Nature in Province of San Luis
Ideal for tourists into hiking and outdoor adventures, the trek to Salto del Tabaquillo requires a serious scramble up a path that follows a river and passes a string of smaller waterfalls. The main falls tumble over a vegetated cliff into a base pool, where you can swim and cool off. Hiring a tour guide is recommended unless you already know the trail.

  • For those who wish to climb the edge, this stop is vital for re-composing energies. In front of the road is a regional warehouse with soft drinks, snacks, regional salames and other things. It is attended by a couple of locals willing to advise intrepid tourists to make a stop at the place. Bordering the edge there are tables and chairs ready to enjoy a sunset never forget.

  • Beautiful and unique. But difficult to access and you need to be in good physical condition to get there. To recommend.

  • Beautiful, I walked about 1 hour down the river. I fell several times because it requires some difficulty. Wear good footwear. The view of the jump is beautiful and the water is freezing.

  • Really great, I did it with my 12 and 16 year old kids. While it is not complicated it requires some agility. We did it without a guide because the price seemed crazy. Recommended.
