Visited as part of a tour group. An easy walk along well maintained walkways to see the falls. The blue of the water looks amazing contrasted with the black of the lava rocks. Nature at it's best.

I have never seen such untouched wonderful nature. It was truly amazing and everyone should visit. The walkway leading to the falls is newly done and also people with walking problems can easily access and enjoy.

Splendid place to walk around and enjoy the strength of natural forces. The combined view of water and vulcano is great! Worthwhile an extended stop on your Interlagos Circuitos trip.

Ignore my earlier answer. I was in the wrong city! Half a day is enough and it’s quite accessible from Puerto Varas, probably 45 minutes or so by car. Not sure about the bus.
