Los Escobas Waterfalls


MEOWSMURPHY

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of doing this excursion on our Sun cruise in Feb. I have some knee problems...does anyone know how far you walk before you get to the falls and how difficult ( or perhaps not) the terrain is? Any input would be greatly appreciated...thanks..Emmy

It is a bit of a hike, although the paths are well developed. A few people seemed to get a little winded. Getting to the falls seemed more difficult than returning, so I suppose that was the more uphill portion. There are some places to sit along the way, but I don't know that they can wait for someone. We spent some time at two sets of falls, perhaps 20-30 minutes at the second set, so there is time to rest then.

 

I was surprised to see a lady at the falls who I knew had knee problems, so I guess it depends to some extent on determination.

 

You can see some pictures from a city/falls tour here:

Thanks for the information...the pictures were great and they gave me some idea of what the path to the falls would be like.. I feel certain I can make it..especially since you said that someone you know, who also has knee problems, was at the falls..makes me more determined to go ;)
