Adventure!

Great slide & pool, easily accessible. Also, try the fish tacos in the cafe at the top. One is plenty!

The place is very nice and near the beach. If you visit ballena beaches area this place is a must. Just be carefull with the wet stones, because you can slide off.

Blue water, not too cold, refreshing though! Close by. Was simply really nice! Cost $2 to enter. We actually went twice because it was a great place to relax and cool off.
