A must-do stop while at El Yunque

It's worth the 30-40 minute hike to get to the falls! And then, spend some time cooling off in the water. The water is super clean and very refreshing!

This is a great waterfall that you can stop and see from the road into the forest. I understand there is also a trail here, but if you have other plans you can still see this beautiful waterfall!

Easy to see the falls as it is right on the road with easy parking across the street. While it is a pretty area, the falls were a minimal trickle compared to the pictures we had seen. If I had hiked to see these falls, it would have been a bigger disappointment.

We were on a tour that dropped us off above the falls and picked us up below. The trail is paved and steep. Lots of steps. First part of trail next to river. Great sound. Lots of folks went into falls to swim. Bottom trail is away from water. Could hear birds and frogs.

A little rigorous climb on the trail. not really a trail. lots of rocks to scramble over but its worth it to see the falls and swim in the little pond. the water was only a trickle for us but hopefully it will be better for those who come after a rain.

La Mina is overrun with people. I would recommend La Coca Falls instead. It's more challenging (especially when nice and muddy) and avoids all the crowds, providing an authentic nature experience instead of a cruise ship excursion. Can you say, "Moo!"?

The falls are right beside the road and there is a pull off so you can park and climb the rocks to get closer to the falls

A pretty little waterfall along the road. Easy to visit. Crowded mid-day, empty late afternoon after the cruise excursions had left the park.

I guess it was the time of the year, as there was just a trickle of water coming over the falls. Don't think I'll be making the drive up again to see it, tho. Was disappointed.
