This place can get busy, but a great place to cool off and see nature. Just across the small stream there is a second little pool fed by a hot water spring. Perfect place to sit and soak that isn't too crowded. We arrived late...More
Great place to visit. Perfect place to take pictures of the natural water falls and to go swimming to cool off. Go early as it gets crowded with tourists during the week. I was told it really fills up on the weekends.
In spite of the short but rather difficult hike, this is definitely a place you should visit if you're in the area. The difficulty was related to the rainy season conditions at the time, and not so much the terrain itself, which was for us...More
