Description

Parking lot of the cascada. We parked there for the night after the about an hour round-trip hike to the cascada. We ask at the gate if we could stay here for the night and were told "creo que si" (I think so). There is water, tables, BBQ, garbage, restaurants and a playground a few step after the entrance of the hike. At the entrance, that says camping with a photo of tent camping but we have no other information.

The Casacada is wonderful and the hike takes just about an hour so very easy with kids. It's mostly steps to go up and down (557 according to Lonely Planet). There is ziplines but I don't know if they are working anymore (closed when we visited). It's 15 pesos per person, 5 for kids. 150 if you want to go by horse.

Nice place for the night. Bit lower/warmer than Uruapan. Some highway noise.

Still 50 pesos for the night (truck & 2 people) plus 15 pesos per person for entry. Good, convenient night stop and s pleasant walk to falls. Water is plentiful and free from the tap, so it's a good place to fill up if you have a big tank!

Parking lot of the cascade. Paid 50 pesos per night. Accès road a little big bumpy. Flat site but very noisy due to the truck traffic on the road.

We've paid 50 pesos to spend the night. Spacious parking lot, pretty cascade and superkind people. The people from the restaurant came to bring us the biggest and most tasty avocados we've ever eaten!

There are several of these indigenous Indian ecotourist centers in the Uruapan area. This one is located on Hwy 37 Libramento as you pass thru Uruapan. Tent camped here 2 nights/ There is a zipline as well as the cascades but never saw anyone on the zipline. Also have horses but few people riding; it seemed most people had their kids pics taken instead. It is quite noisy at night since it is right on the highway. There were a few dogs around as well.
The walk to the cascades is about 20 minutes one-way. I was told by locals that the water here is quite contaminated so I added couple of drops of bleach to dishwater for safety. There are a couple of small restaurants that mostly sell snacks and drinks.
Paid 50 pesos/night plus entrance fee of 15 pesos.
Weather was nice this time of year; not too cold or hot.

We spent a night here. Worked great as we dropped laundry in Uruapan and came out here. The parking was flat. Shady. Safe. There was some highway noise. Water was available by hose. Toilets had seats. Tiendas and restaurants.
The falls are pretty and the walk is easy. But it is really hard to reconcile the trash and pollution you will see. It is shocking!
So- while this place worked for our needs, I was glad we didn't go out of our way to see it.

Nice and relax place to sleep and visit the falls. Next to road, so sometimes a bit noisy but it did not bother us. Basic toilets and water available and some small restaurants. We paid 50 peso's for the vehicle and 15 peso's per person for 1 day.
