Natural Attractions

Salto Jimenoa Uno

El Salto de Baiguate is one of the outdoor tourist attractions that's popular with visitors. El Salto de Baiguate is the perfect waterfall for families. It is close to many attractions and is quite easy to get to, as well as offering a wide range of activities that can keep different ages entertained.

Salto Jimenoa Dos is another attraction you should consider visiting. This is a smaller waterfall further North than its bigger sibling, Salto Jimenoa Uno. However, it makes up for its smaller stature in a better swimming area and a more adventurous path to reach it.
