Alex our tour guide led us along a slippery path back to the waterfalls. There were plenty of people swimming in the water, people of all ages. Great place for pictures. very scenic. well worth the hike.

Well maintained trail on the "stream" side made the walk very easy. It was very beautiful and the falls were a great climax.

Out of no where, on the side of the road is a huge waterfall! You'll probably see the group of people coagulating, but if you don't pull over and walk back to the falls to get some pictures in. Don't be nervous if you want to step over the rail and onto the rocks (they may be slippery!)

Good midway point to stop for a breather; great place to take a dip in the water if you want to cool off. Nice photo op.

It's a beautiful short stop as you make your way up El Yunque Rain Forest. Probably not something I would go far out of my way to see, but it's a nice easy stop if you are already on your way up.

We did not take the chance of walking on the rocks, but we saw people way up at a great height. I was content to view it from the road. I would imagine that there would be great temptation on a particularly hot day. It does not take much time to enjoy the view, get a few shots, and move... More

This waterfall was pretty and looked like a good place to cool off. It was packed when we were there, so we hiked in, had a look, snapped a couple pictures and got out of there. Too many people! However, on a less busy day this would be a beautiful spot to spend some time.

No matter which falls you take in, they are all beautiful in there own way. Enjoy and come back again.

Not terribly exciting, and too crowded. This actually summarizes el Yunque and these falls equally. I guess you can't skip them if you drive the road but they are really nothing special.

One of the first waterfalls you will see, and probably the most photographed. On your way up or returning from your hike you will probably want to stop and take photos. Not recommended climbing on the rocks though, they tend to be wet and slippery.
