Cocalito Waterfall

The Cocalito Waterfall is an unusual cascade in that the water tumbling over the cliff empties not into its own freshwater pool, but directly into the ocean. Along the path leading to the falls you’re likely to see brightly colored crabs and the common basilisk, nicknamed the Jesus lizard because it walks on water (it actually can briefly run across the water’s surface). Once at the falls, you can take a cool dip.
