Cascadas de Llano Grande (Llano Grande Waterfalls) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Nestled in the Sierra Madre de Oaxaca, the Cascadas de Llano Grande (Llano Grande Waterfall) is an ideal spot for hiking, swimming, and rappelling. Its shallow pools and multiple cascading waterfalls give ample opportunity for all kinds of water activities: Climb a tree, leap off the rocks, or swing from a rope into the pristine waters below.
The waterfall is part of the Copalitilla, a tributary of the Copalita River. It’s an easy 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) hike along a scenic river trail to the waterfall, so be prepared for the walk. Llano Grande is difficult to find on your own and most visitors arrive as part of a day trip or ATV tour from Huatulco that includes round-trip transport. Tours typically also include visits to the Finca La Gloria coffee plantation and a butterfly sanctuary.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Llano Grande Waterfall is a must-see for adventurous nature lovers.
- Choose a tour that includes round-trip transport from Huatulco, as the waterfall is difficult to find on your own.
- Wear waterproof shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
- Bring a dry change of clothes and other necessities like a hat, bug spray, and sunblock.
How to Get There
The Llano Grande Waterfall is located in the municipality of San Miguel del Puerto, about a 90-minute drive from Huatulco. It’s a drive over rough, unpaved roads with little to no signage, so having an experienced guide to get you there can be helpful.
When to Get There
As with all of Huatulco, the Llano Grande Waterfall can be visited year-round. This area receives fewer tourists than other Mexican resort destinations, and it’s rarely crowded. Wet weather is likely from June to October, which can make getting to the waterfall more difficult.
Finca La Gloria
While at Llano Grande, you’ll want to set aside some time to visit the nearby La Gloria coffee plantation. Tour the family-owned farm, learn about the coffee-production process, and sample a freshly brewed cup of aromatic mountain-grown coffee. The waterfall and coffee farm are included on most guided tours of the Sierra Madre de Oaxaca.
