Pailon del Diablo (Devil's Cauldron), Banos

4.8
Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
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.

  • The view is amazing. The hike can be a little tiring if you are out of shape like me, but the view is totally worth it. The restaurant on the bottom of the trail is really but, but kind of expensive.  more »
