This place is worth a visit. December weather is unpredictable so alternated between showers and sunshine. The cascades are really something

Rented a bike for $5 didnt realize how far it is or how dangerous. Mind you I'm not an avid biker. Quit after 2nd waterfall. Took the trucks for $10 to diablo. Well worth it.

32 waterfalls along the route, plenty of places to do extreme sports, you can fish for trout and they’ll prepare it for you in a bunch of places. Spectacular and worth doing!

We made 20 km of the Ruta de las cascadas by bike and saw many beautiful waterfalls. You can stop in different place to have lunch or simply enjoy the landscape.

Hey, I did the Chivas bus tour so I'm not sure how long the bike route option would take. I'm guessing it depends on 1) your fitness 2) how may stops you make and how long you stop for. Also, if you are doing Casa de arbol... More
