Stay on the road to Gualaca for 17.5 kms.  Once you get into town, which is small, you will pass a Terpel Gas station....after passing that you are only a couple of blocks away.  Turn left when you see this sign.

036 (640x456)

Go 0.9 km and the River Canyon is on your right.  There is no fee to enter.  You do not have to hike anywhere, just park your car and go down the steps.  It's a beautiful area.

One thing of note that is important.  Half way into your drive to Gualaca, you will see these speed bumps.  These are not your normal speed bumps as they are evil and want to damage your vehicle!  In all seriousness, when you see them, don't just slow down, but stop your vehicle and then roll over them.

Enjoy your stay at the Los Cangilones de Gualaca!  If you go during the week, before 3pm, you'll virtually have the place to yourselves.  On the weekend, it is crowded.
