Worth the time to visit this place. The hike is easy to walk and then swim in in the 3 crystal clear fresh water pools. You can do it all within an hour or two.

We really enjoyed seeing some nature and swimming in these unique lagoons with fish and small turtles. I believe you can swim in 4 of the lagoons and this is definitely worth a 2-3 hour trip. Awesome that it is free to resort guests.
