Nice waterfall area for photo opportunity. We were one of the adventurous couple that went up and climbed on the rocks and got some pretty cool pics. Be careful as it is slippery! Lots of people stop here but definitely worth it in El Yunque. My guess is every tour bus stops here.

Out of 7 waterfalls in the park, this one was the only one our tour took us. It was beautiful. The views from the road were amazing. Though it was winter, we saw many blooms and wildlife

Huge waterfall on the side of the road in the El Yunque rainforest. You can hike up halfway to the top and get a better look at the falls. The road usually gets very congested around this point because people just stop in the middle of the road.

Beautiful LA COCA FALLS in the El Junque park in Puerto Rico! This subtropical rain forest attracts over 1 million visitors a year. It was pleasantly cool during our visit. IMPORTANT FACT TIP: The El Junque is unique in that you can have vistas of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans from the peaks

It is just not goose boggy to be worth the hike. It was just not fun at all. The waterfall was small, pathetic, and a thief of my time. The hike was just awful. The hike is awful on both paths.

Me and my friends passed la coca falls as we were driving to the peak, it was pretty cool but nowhere close to the waterfall at the end of the mina trail. It was also hard to get a good picture due to all the tourists hanging around and taking pictures.

So many waterfall attractions require a hike and can't be enjoyed by everyone. This one however is right on the side of the road, and great for picture taking.
