Walk across the bridge for views from above Saltos del Laja, where a set of four horseshoe-shaped waterfalls sit side by side along a total width of 455 m (1,492 ft). The easternmost fall is the tallest cascade here, plunging from a total height of 35 m (114 ft). Because of the site's popularity with local and foreign tourists alike, a number of souvenir stands and restaurants have set up shop a stone's throw from the main attraction, so options for grabbing a bite to eat are plentiful.

Beautiful place. It does get crowed, but it is worth the visit. The river is a great place to go swimming.
