Rent snorkel gear! We didn't even know what to expect at the end and just kept following signs out of curiousity.

Disliked the rough path but the actual pool at the end was wonderful. Very popular at weekends, so could be a hazard jumping in.

The walk was the best part but Las Grietas was very anticlimatic. There were teens every where playing lame techno music from their phones. The swimming hole is small and it's nothing special.

Las Grietas was not what I expected since it was a bunch of lava rocks and a small body of water. The water was really salty, but had some fish in there. To get to Las Grietas, take a water taxi and walk along the paved and sandy trail. Afterwards, you'll see a sign for Las Grietas and take the stairs down to the area.

Recommendations:
- Bring sturdy walking shoes because the lava rocks are really sharp and slippery.
- Hang out at the beach nearby the hotels since you can at least eat and lie down on the sand.

I didn't find this place to be all that great. Just not worth the time or the hike when there are so many better things to do
