  • Worth visiting this place, it's amazing! Many native species and the peace of the place is everything. Few tourists which is very enjoyable. Bring water and some food supplies, fruits to spend the day there. There are ceremonial centers full of beautiful energy. Ideal for you to make your own apachetas :)

  • This is a beautiful walk along the railway lines from Aguas Calientes. The waterfall is amazing. It is peaceful and absolutely beautiful with a display of all the indigenous plants along the walk towards the waterfall. There is a small coffee shop just before you enter the reserve.
  • This was a great walk from Aguas Calientes along the railroad track. I love walking along tracks in the rainforest, there is just something about it. Walking by the towering cliff faces and looking out into the tops of trees to watch the small songbirds and hummingbirds. Got to photograph quite a few birds, and saw some interesting mushrooms.
