The waterfall is hidden between an imposing canyon, as if it were a secret to be discovered. The water drops from a height of 46 meters forming a huge lake with icy waters.

Sanctuary Waterfall

THE Sanctuary Waterfall is the main attraction of the complex, to reach it, the tourist needs to walk for 600 meters in a self-guided wooden structure that guarantees safety. On the way, the bravest ones can walk on a suspension bridge that crosses a huge canyon, the less brave ones can have fun at the second stop that contains several waterfalls, which slide over the rock walls that form the canyon.

In the last part of the way, visitors have to walk between the walls of the canyon with water up to their waist, for a few moments the enormous sound of the water flow is their only reference of the way. The Sanctuary Waterfall is hidden amidst the rocky walls, its huge drop plummets from 50 meters into a pool 1.5 meters deep. The huge splash stream generates a cloud of water through the air all the time, making it practically impossible to take a perfect photo.
