Let's change the geographical area and go to Guyana. One of the most tourist attractions of this territory is its fabulous Kaieteur Falls, considered by many as one of the most spectacular in the world for its 226 meters of free fall height. Can you imagine how tall they are? You just have to compare them with Niagara Falls to know that they are 5 times higher… seeing them live is a true spectacle of water, wind and wonders!

The angel's Jump

Cataract of the Saint of the Angel

From Guyana we will move to a nearby territory, to Venezuela, specifically to the Canaima National Park to know its maximum natural exponent: The Angel Falls and its 979 meters high, and therefore the highest waterfall in the world. The name already gives us a glimpse of how this type of waterfall should be, and how spectacular it will be. So impressive that it would take a large camera and a lot of distance to be able to capture its magnitude.

The blue waterfall

In Ecuador we came across the Shishink Nature Reserve and its Blue Waterfall. Although it is not really impressive in size (25 meters high), it is still worth visiting to observe its great beauty. Who says a relatively small waterfall can't be full of splendor? And it is that the majesty of nature does not understand sizes, it gives us the opportunity to contemplate its beauty.

If you travel to Peru, you should spend an extra day on your visit to see mountain waterfalls such as the Velo de Ángel with its 28 meters of free fall, the Enchanted Siren and its 70 meters high or the San Miguel Waterfall with its 100 meters high. However, the one that stands out the most in the mountains is the Parijaro Waterfall with its 250 meters high, located in the Otishi National Park.

In the jungle area we find waterfalls such as the laughing and crystalline waters of Ahuashiyacu, the Velo de la Novia Waterfall, or the Tirol Waterfalls. The Peruvian coast is not far behind and shows us its natural grandeur with the 20-meter high Pala Cala Waterfall.

They are worth seeing

And if you really want to see such a beautiful show, the best thing you can do is look for a long vacation to enjoy a good waterfall route, but of course ... this would mean that in addition to having a lot of time, you should also have a good economic fund to be able to pay for accommodation, travel from one place to another, food ... and if You travel from Spain, you will have to have good money saved because air travel is not usually very cheap.
