The perfect waterfall and jade pool await at Salto de Baiguate, tucked below a deep canyon yet easily reached via a series of wooden steps that lead directly to the water. Residents and their families flock to this waterfall area for an easy, refreshing swim during the day. The waterfall itself cascades down 25 meters (82 feet), and its emerald-colored, fresh water pool goes from shallow to deep as you near the fall. The ride to this protected area, approximately 20 minutes from town, reveals delightful mountainside agricultural village scenery, passing fields of fragrant cilantro. If you’re feeling brave, you can also hop on a canyoning excursion that ends with rappelling down Salto de Baiguate.
