Malpasito

Here, both the population and rulers met. It could be said it was today’s City Hall equivalent. It was considered the most important place; you can see six structures making up and delimiting its not inconspicuous plus-2,200-square-meters area.

To access, you’ll have to climb for a compacted soil and sandstone rock stairway. The firmness and precision they conserve is striking and you’ll realize it when walking on them—unlike other archaeological sites, is very comfortable and easy since the stairs are quite similar to those of today’s.

From the top, you’ll be able to see the site distribution, as if you were on a hilltop, and further down you’ll see the town's life with its religious, sports, sacred and social spaces.

In this case, Malpasito small city has an interesting construction that seems embedded in the mountain, as if both had merged hundreds of years ago.

In the area you can also practice rappelling down a 35-meter waterfall, for which you should contact local operators in advance to check availability and form a group, since a minimum of participants is required for bringing about this activity.

The path through the jungle prepares you for the excitement that awaits you. Don’t forget wearing comfortable shoes for hiking practice. Don’t be scared: it’s only herb-stony-and-fully-woodland lands.

Before descending, get ready for the incredible views, connect with the environment and put your senses on alert so that you can enjoy the descent through the ropes.

Everything is controlled by experts whose mission is making you feel comfortable so that the experience was memorable. Going down is quite simple: professional experience isn’t required but having had a light breakfast and having the energy to let you go. We guarantee that it will be an unforgettable activity on your itinerary.
