#3 of 6 in Nature in Tena
Climb over dramatic waterfalls and pass through pools of cooling water to reach Jumandi Caves, named after the Ecuadorian hero who hid women and children in caves during the 16th-century Spanish invasions. Jumandi himself was found hiding in this cave by the Spanish and later executed in Quito. Enter the caves to see 3 m (9.8) tall stalagmites that have taken over 30 years to grow. Wear sturdy hiking shoes for the trek, bring a change of clothes or a swimsuit, and expect to get wet. Hiring a professional tour guide is required to visit.
