  • Incredibly lovely nature spot along the river with small waterfalls, natural water slides (one slow & gentle, one fast & adventurous!) and large rock formations. By Puerto Rico standards it is a very easy hike in, mostly with steps that have been built, but some potentially muddy, slippery trail at the end. It takes less than 5 minutes to reach it from the road. You can park your car off the roadside for $5 at one of the local homes who change for this service. It’s a bargain & you should do it, rather than leave the fate of your parked car to chance! Good hiking sandals or equivalent recommended. Be mindful of your own safety when sliding or jumping into water and scrambling over boulders. Gorgeous places for pictures. Please carry out your trash & leave no trace at any PR attraction, so that all may enjoy the natural beauty as you have.
  • We enjoyed it so much that we went 2 days during our week visit to PR! The first day was figuring it out, and was so much fun! Even my husband and I tried out the slides! Adults can get a little banged up, but the kids just flew! The lower slide and pool was our favorite. We swam across the pool and scrambled down the river a bit. It was a gorgeous way to spend an afternoon! Unfortunately, others haven't been very respectful, and have left trash around. The family who allows you to pay $5 to park was very nice (you do have to pay to use the WC, be aware!). The path down to the river can be a bit slippery. The second day we went was after a day of rain, and the water was definitely rushing stronger, and was muddier. So plan your visit when it hasn't been recently raining, for your best experience!
