After we pass Maracas and Tyrico Bays, continue along the North Coast Road until we come to a small road on our right with the road sign “Zorro Road”; take this narrow road and drive inside carefully. Bases on the weather conditions, once good, we can drive through 2 river crossings that is not wide. When we cross the second crossing, we park and the prepare for the trek.
We trek through an extremely quiet village of Zorro where the inhabitants are very few, but friendly people. We trek along flat terrain until we come to a river. At this point, you don’t have much of a choice but to get your feet wet. The waters are shallow and invitingly cool, but we must move on, for what’s in store for us is surely worth the trek.
We will eventually come up to a hill that is not that steep, but constant all the way up. We are now directly under the El Tucuche valley, so the forest here is very lush and green. As we trek further uphill, we will be treated to a small waterfall on our right. As the hill eventually flattens out, you are now a stone throw from “Angel Falls” where there are three levels of falls. One word of caution though; the rocks to get from level to the other is the slipperiest set of rocks I’ve ever come across and ropes are a must to get from level to another. The bathing here is cold and Great. The sounds of the three levels of waters coming down, “very therapeutic indeed”.
Leaving the falls, we will take another route that will be a bit shorter. It’s obviously all the way downhill, through an abandoned cocoa estate until we eventually reach the field just before the river we met before starting our trek uphill.
