Nice waterfall

Right on the edge of the road and ample parking it is a great photo opportunity. Go early to get pics without other people in them.

The falls are right beside the road, pull over and take a picture with this beautiful waterfall in the background. I climbed up midway on the falls path, but the best view if from the street. Theres plenty of parking after you pass the falls.

The falls are along the road that goes up the rain forest mountain. You have to park passed the falls and cross the street to get the falls. It is a narrow and curve road so you can't see a car coming till it is almost on top of you. So if you have small children you need to really... More

La Coca Falls is one of the first points of interest you come to in El Yunque. The falls are visible right off the road with no hiking involved (La Coca Trail is a separate entity and the trail head is located just past La Coca Falls on the left of 191 as you are driving up). There was roadside... More

La Coca Falls is located right on the road. People on the road, cars stopping on the road, tour buses, ect. so use caution when driving in this area. Very hard to get a photo with so many people at the falls. Do not waste too much time here take a photo and move on there are 6 other water... More

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
