Stop at Cascada de Agoyan to admire the route's number one attraction, a twin waterfall that you can view from a high bridge or by taking a gondola ride from the fall's base. You can observe much of the route's best scenery in the 18 km (11 mi) between Banos and El Diablo.

But again a very beautiful route.
