Plunging water makes quite a spectacle at Cascada EL Pailon, located on Ecuador's "ruta de las cascadas," the waterfall route along the Rio Verde river. The thunderous waterfall draws avid photographers to this misty natural area, known for its lush cloud forest vegetation and varied wildlife. To reach the suspension bridge offering arguably the best views of the crashing water, visitors must climb a steep and slippery path. For a lower-level view of the waterfall, you can stand on the stone steps carved into the vertical cliff. Wear slip-resistant shoes and bring a rain jacket.

My dad and I took a bike ride from Baños (rented quality mountain bikes for $10/per person for entire day!). There are many stops along the way and then we hooked up the hikes outside El Pablo Del Diablo. Walked about 20 minutes to the waterfall and saw its stunning and powerful beauty. I recommend going in from both entrances because you will experience going under the waterfall where we entered but on the opposite side you will be able to stare and tske some real quality photos capturing it's epic essence.
It was a nice place, we got there by riding a bike, its not so far or difficult to get there. Wonderful views of some waterfalls and finally the big one and the cool stone stairs.
