Description

La Sirena is quite a spectacular place to go for a swim, not really because of the waterfall itself but more because of the surrounding forest. It’s in a deep slot canyon lush trees and vegetation, butterflies, birds… i think it was worth the trip up and the COP 10,000 for the guide which you get from the nearby tienda (you can probably make it without one if no one sees you but for the sake of helping the local economy a bit… $2.5 isn’t going to break the bank!)
Things to know before you go:
It’s a wet hike, you’ll have to cross the river a couple of times and it’s deep enough to get wet to your neck (and I am 2 meters / 6’7”) they didn’t mention that so didn’t bring a drybag… made it happen but best to know! You’ll definitely want decent shoes as it’s rocky, wet, slippery all those things…
Also, access to the village, as marked by my partner along the road, there is no access from the Buenaventura side passed aguaclara (road collapsed / no maintenance) and the road from the east side has partially collapsed 3 kms from El Danubio only allowing pedestrians and motos through. The locals are hoping for the government to fix the road but I have the feeling the rest will collapse long before there is any repairs being done!
Anyway, the ride down here is pretty spectacular and for that alone we are glad we came. Shame we couldn’t carry on as planned all the way to Buenaventura.
