Beautiful series of swimming holes. Falls are gorgeous. I come from gorgeous river country and was in awe of this place. Safe swimming (no currents of note when I was there/fairly shallow in most parts). Idyllic setting. Very popular with locals (avoid weekends if possible...More

It's a nice place to chill. There are some shops selling snacks, and meals close by. There are a lot of places next to the stream, and the waterfall where you can sit and relax with family and friends.

You can find the first answer on the internet, but it is about 1 hr by car from the gate depending on which way you go. People swim there, but I wouldn't since the water isn't very clean looking. Leeches--I don't know.
