We, along with hundreds of other tourists, took the paved path to La Mina. The number of people was very overwhelming so we did not stay to splash in the falls. I felt like I was in the crowd at Fountain of Trevi in Italy....More

We stopped here while hiking the forest. It is not the tallest water fall I have ever seen but a beautiful site nevertheless.

We went with a couple of friends and our children ( ages 6, 8 10, and 11). It is a mild to medium hike into the rain forest. Great views and vegetation. You can hear the "coquis" signing as you walk.

this was an OK waterfall, but there are more special walks in El Yunque that are often neglected in favor of this waterfall.

It was an easy hike to the falls and only took about 15 minutes or so to get down there. However, when we got there, about 60 other people were there. The falls are pretty but not all together that large and swimming wasn't really...More

They have tours where they will pick you up from your hotel but it's really better to drive up yourself and go at your own pace

She should be fine if she is pretty active. There were people of all shapes and sizes on the path to La Mina. There are also 4 or 5 rest spots, so she can pace herself. There are a few spots that will likely get her a... More
