La Coca Falls are the first falls you see when driving through El Yunque. I recommend by passing them and going to the observation tower and La Mina falls first because those take the most time and energy. On your way out I would say is the best time to stop and see these falls.

The cool thing about this water fall was you can see it from your car. So if you are traveling with really young ones or immobile passengers you could just take in the beauty from your car.

These falls were right next to the main road leading up the mountains. There is parking close to the waterfall and many people get in and swim. They are beautiful!

You can get to here by car, so no reason to not see them. Some people even climbed some of the rocks to get closer to the falls, but I would not recommend it, specially for little kids.

Another very scenic place to view the falls and to take great pictures with the falls as a backdrop. We enjoyed out time there.

The falls are next to the highway for the more adventurous you are able to climb on the rocks (safely). Got beautiful photos.
