From Mindo we drove 5 hours to ‘Hosteria Reventador’, a hotel close to the village and vulcan ‘El Reventador’ and even closer to the San Rafael Falls.
After arrival, we walked for about 30 minutes from the hotel to the viewpoint over the 131m high San Rafael falls. A spectacular view!
The next day we woke up early to see the active volcano ‘El Reventador’. We had a clear sky and from the mirador up the hill we could spot the enormous amount of smoke that came out the volcano.
After breakfast we drove to the ‘Cascada Mágica’ (also known as ‘Río Malo waterfalls’). This one was even more impressive then San Rafael and lives up to its name because it was truly magical!
