Salto Jimenoa Uno

Travelers who enjoy natural surroundings might enjoy El Salto de Baiguate. 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 local attraction that you might enjoy. 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.
