Do

  • Fin del Mundo (meaning: End of the World) is a natural reserve and extremely beautiful waterfall, just a few kilometer outside of Mocoa, Colombia.

Take a "Collectivo" for 1000 COP to the entrance and cross the bridge to start the trek. The Entrance fee is 2000 COP. After roughly one hour walking (mainly uphill) you'll reach the top and come across several pools (bathing is possible) and many smaller waterfalls. Also a restaurant is build there beautifully in a cave where you can order food and drinks. The actual "Fin del Mundo" is at the very end of the trek and you'll arrive on top of the fall - looking down approximately 70 to 80 meters!

A small path to your right leads down all the way to the falls bottom (great spot for making pictures) but its not very easy walking and sometimes slippery - so be careful! Once on the bottom you need to follow the same path up again.

To return to the bridge you'll have to follow the same way back which you came from. But since it's only going down, it will be quite fast.
