  • It is the third time that I go and already didn't see as many fish as before. An entry charge and give you a slice of bread and half old chairs to sit.

  • Perfect to connect with nature. At the cabana prices are rather expensive but the only place for sale

  • I like the landscape, the height and the fall. but I found it missing security, that jackets are very expensive and there is no counseling by the site staff. An asalon to rest would be ideal, or at least one large kiosk to take shelter in case of rain. Sales of hot drinks would be an excellent choice.

  • Cool and beautiful, but a bit crowded
  • Gorgeous place. Bring your snorkel!
  • Great experience! Bring your snorkel, or rent one really cheap here
  • (English below) There are two pools - which is more on the South of the island with the coffee tourism notice is best. It has a price of entry of 4,000 pesos. They do not allow to enter food or drinks, have packages of Pope and costly gas for sale. Best to bring food and drink, and not show it at the entrance. However, one comes not by tea, but by the spectacular plunge pool filled with fish of all kinds. If you are lover of swimming, good place to practice open water swimming, since it is an area of sea very still. There are two areas calling themselves Pisicinita (little pool). The one further south by the brown sign is the better one. Cost of entry is 4,000 pesos, and they don't allow snacks or drinks, though they sell (overpriced) eleven inside them. Best to bring food and snacks and just not show them at entrance. However, you don't eat for snacks, but the spectacular for the pool, full of all types of fish. If you're a swimmer, it's also a great place to practice open water swims, as the water is very calm.

  • This rating is just for the experience of to swim in this place. However the attention is not what a tourist deserves. 4 thousand per person on the ticket, the rental of snorkeling is worth $ 15 thousand (have to leave a deposit of 100).
