Consider hiring a car and taking the beautifully scenic drive to El Nicho Waterfalls. Observe two beautiful falls, with a pool, serving as the perfect spot for a cool, refreshing dip.

Consider arriving early in the day to avoid crowds and afternoon showers. After visiting the falls, pop into the onsite restaurant for a bite to eat.
