"This was taken during a magical summer trip with close friends. We were staying at my family's home in Rincón. After four days spent between the beach and our front porch, we drove inland for a welcome freshwater adventure. The falls are difficult to find, but fairly well discovered (read: $5 parking). There were two local families with us for the first hour or so – the fall abounded with young children. But as soon as they left and the coast was clear, suits were stripped and we were free to enjoy the falls like we were the only people in the world." - Liana Blum
Wear : Dad sandals -- the hike down is quite steep and slippery.
Go : Walk upstream to the second waterfall. There's a rope swing up there and powder blue swimming holes along the way. Explore the town of San Sebastián on your way out – there’s wonderful kitschy shops to peruse.
Stay : In Rincón or Isabela. The falls are about an hour away from both -- a perfect day trip. The Siren Inn in Rincón is our favorite – a beautiful slice of paradise on the beach.
Eat : Pastrami sandwiches made with pan de agua. Pick them up at one of the local bakeries. Once back in Rincón, stuff your weary self with mofongo and suspiciously cheap rum cocktails at Red Flamboyan. It's right up the hill from Pools Beach.
Drink : Straight from the coconuts!
