Las Cascadas de Peguche, or the Peguche Waterfalls, are located on the northeast side of Otavalo, Ecuador. It’s about a 30 to 45-minute walk from the center of Otavalo to the entrance to the park.
The Peguche Waterfalls (map) sit at the base of the inactive Imbabura Volcano and the area surrounding the waterfalls is known as the most beautiful rainforest in Northern Ecuador.
The trails are well maintained and it’s a pretty easy hike up to Mirador Arcoiris (Rainbow Lookout). You’ll also find some volcanic warm springs (we’ve been told they aren’t very hot), campsites, and cabins that are popular with tourists.
We went on a Wednesday, so there weren’t many people around. It was super relaxing and muy tranquilo.

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
