Canyoning on Petaquirito

Petaquirito's waterfall is located in the coastal mountain range of Vargas State, just a few kilometers from to Chichiriviche de la costa. The waterfall its approximately 40 meters high and can be descended throughout the use of ropes (canyoneering). The walk to approach the river is very simple.

Canyoning involves a minimum of physical endurance and courage, because sometimes we have to walk through some difficult trails to access the waterfalls.
