Diving into Divine Waterfalls
Puerto Rico is blessed with numerous waterfalls, such as the 500-foot-tall San Cristobal Canyon and the three-in-one falls of Salto Doña Juana. The fame of El Yunque’s La Coca and La Mina Falls means Juan Diego Falls remain a largely undiscovered secret: A little farther up from La Coca is a hidden trail that leads to a short trickle of water which splashes into an invigoratingly cool pool, tucked well away from prying eyes. Gozalandia Waterfall in western San Sebastián might draw the crowds, but there's only enough room for two under the velvety stream of cascading water. For added privacy, swim underwater into a nearly imperceptible alcove.
