Pailon del Diablo (Devil's Cauldron), Banos

4.8
Plunging water makes quite a spectacle at Pailon del Diablo (Devil's Cauldron), 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.
