To get to Tamanique, there is a paved road in great conditions, you can also take a public bus in front of the main El Litoral Road in the El Tunco bus stop. The bus passes every hour. In Tamanique town, there are bathrooms and a convenience store to get water and snacks. You walk aprox 40 minutes to the first pool, you can jump here as many times as you like, the second pool is right next to this one. Both pools have a height of around 3 to 8 meters, jumping is COMPLETELY optional. The Natural waterslide is here as well, and if the current is good, we can slide here. Then you walk 10 to 20 minutes to the next 2 waterfalls. The way back is steep and many times you will need to use your hands to climb up. It takes aprox 60 minutes to get back to the main plaza. To contact Vladimir please call him or whatsapp him to 503 7099 1445, he speaks a little english. Or send us a message if you plan on doing this activity on a Saturday.
