I don't have much to add versus the other reviews ... I'll restate what they are saying ... nice falls and nearby parking is available but spots fill quick. You can see the falls from your car but it's worth parking and spending a few minutes there to enjoy the view.

When going up to the rain forest this is the first fall that is in the forest. You don't have to hike to see this. It is an ok Fall compared to La mina. However, if you take the trails to hike in the rainforest, you will see many small falls that are much more beautiful than this one.

We just stopped right in from of the falls in a jeep and took some pictures. We were a little pressed for time and it looked pretty crowded. Everything you would wan to see you can see from the car.

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.

We climbed up the rocks on the side to stand next to the falls! You can also just stand in front of it or it can be seen from the car. The climb was a slight bit tricky but with a partner it was a lot easier. You don't need to stop at the visitor center to pay and see... More

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. For the more adventurous types there are two parking places for you to stop and walk right up to the falls. You can... More

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.
