Tamanique Waterfalls are located close to Tamanique Town, aprox 20kms away from El Tunco. There are 2 small pools where you can jump into the water. There are two big waterfalls where you can swim in the fresh and clean water from the mountains. To get here there is a short 40min hike down and then to go back its a very steep 1 hour, very hot and difficult hike, specially during rainy season. The 4th and last waterfall might not be accesible sometimes due to high risk of sliding down in rainy season. This hike is recommended only for people with a medium-high level of fitness.

Then we walk to the bus station to catch the public bus to Tamanique town, there are bathrooms there and a convenience store to get water and snacks.
