These Turquoise Pools In Arizona Will Make You Feel Like You're In Tuscany
Can we stay for a little while longer?
We think everyone deserves a vacation. But if buying that plane ticket will break the bank, you can opt for a much more affordable option. There's a blue waterfall in Arizona that'll make you feel like you're at the Saturnia Hot Springs in Tuscany.
Just below the rim of the Grand Canyon is the Havasupai tribe, whose land is home to beautiful blue waterfalls and pools. At the beginning of every year, reservations are available so that you can visit the falls.
Making a reservation is the only way to hike there and each reservation is for 3 days and 4 nights. Prices range between $300 and $375 per person, depending on whether your stay is on a weekend or weekday.
You and your friends can plan a trip here, all while saving money on a plane ticket overseas. It's also a hike that should be on your bucket list.
There are a total of five waterfalls you can visit, however, Beaver Falls is one favorite. It has many pools that are perfect for soaking and they'll make you feel like you're in Tuscany.
The hike to the falls is difficult, as you'll have to walk waist-deep in water to get there. It's approximately 6-miles from Supai Village, which makes it a total of 12-miles roundtrip.
The perfect part of having a three-day reservation is that you don't have to rush to see the falls.
Included in your reservation is access to the campground. It's about 2-miles from the village.
If you'd rather stay the night at the lodge, you can reserve a room with your friends. It's about $440 per night, but if you split the cost it's only $110 per person with four people.
The turquoise pools are such a sight for sore eyes; you'll never want to leave. Sometimes reservations fill up on the first day they open, but there's always a chance you can snag up a cancellation throughout the year.
If there's none available, you can opt for this Arizona hike that will lead you to. It's challenging, but the views are worth it.
Price: $300 - $375 per person, reservations can be made here
