  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and I’ve been all over. Short hike into a beautiful river with all sorts of places to relax in the water, or if you’re braver to jump in. If you go up river just a little there’s even a natural slide down to a short drop. So amazing.
  • It would have been nice if there would have been any signage at the entrance of the park indicating that the road was closed as you approached La Coca Falls. Yes, it’s on your website but may adults (seniors) don’t have access to the web. That’s my 2 star rating. That said, still very beautiful!! Hopefully the construction will be completed next time. When open, it’s definitely a 5 star attraction!!
