What to expect
Travel by motorboat from the dock of La Plata to the site of La Sierpe waterfalls, two incredible cascades measuring 60 meters (200 ft) tall! Let your guide teach you about the legendary history of these beautiful waterfalls and the rich cultural tradition that surrounds them. Sacred to natives of this region, the waterfalls received the name “Sierpe,” meaning snake, because they are believed to have been created by magical snakes sent by Mother Earth to create life at the bottom of the ocean. The waterfalls are said to carry water that will bring love and fertility to those who touch it. The people of Bahía Málaga bathe in these falls as a symbolic act of maturity as they leave their childhood behind and enter adulthood. In these waters, they unlock the vital secrets to fishing, gathering Piangua clams, and coexisting with the forest. Go for a swim in the stunning natural pools of fresh and salt water formed at the base of the falls and experience this energy for yourself! Journey down the path of La Sierpe and learn about the wealth of flora and fauna around you. After, enjoy a delicious meal at a local restaurant and taste the traditions of Colombia's Pacific coast before making your way back to the dock of La Plata.
