El Salto is the local swimming hole. At a neat free place to go with a role swing, deep enough to dive in, a waterfall and pool. Just sitting on the rocks people watching is entertainment.

If you want to have some outdoor fun, and relaxation!, this is the place. FREE fun. Just park your car on the side of street and walk down under bridge. Enjoy mother nature and grab the rope!

Biggest attraction was the rope swing that you can swing out over pool below falls and drop in. A local kid was doing some fancy dives off the rope and entertained onlookers. People lounging on rocks above and below the falls. Note- no bathrooms or changing rooms. Water shoes would be nice but not necessary. No food stands. We spent 2 hours there and for us that was about right for our family.

The swing is amazing and the teens love the thrill. But they need upper body strength to pull themselves up and out of the water, so beware.

I first heard of El Salto thru bloggers and went for the tarzan swing. Just park alonside the road in front of Tabacon with parking attendants who will point out the El Salto entrance as well as a "donation". At the base of the path we went to the left. The water is rushing down and can be a bit tricky when stepping against it as you walk under the overpass. We followed a dirt path on the right side to the end and jumped in. Very relxing but you'll need to position yourself behind/between rocks, otherwise the current will take you away. This is where those water shoes come in handy as you climb over rocks and boulders against the current. My 12y.o. stubbed his toes pretty badly. Alas, we found the waterfall and sat underneatht it for awhile. It gets dark a little after 5pm so plan accordingly. It was an adventure for my family. Not as realxing as I thought it would be but then again, thats what happens when you go chasing waterfalls sometimes. We never did find the tarzan swing.
