La Coca Falls, El Yunque National Forest

4.2
#3 of 11 in Parks in El Yunque National Forest
Observe a 26 m (85 ft) falls flanked by rainforest on both sides when you visit La Coca Falls. Easily accessible once you enter the El Yunque National Park, the water cascades down the rocks and crashes onto the boulders at the base. Head here early to get clear pictures of the falls and the surrounding rainforest with fewer tourists. Resist the urge to climb the rocks, even for better pictures, as they are very slippery. Our El Yunque National Forest day trip planner makes visiting La Coca Falls and other El Yunque National Forest attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • You don't even have to get out of the car to see this one. You can see it as you drive by. Most people get out to take a picture. There is parking on the side of the road before you reach the falls.  more »
  • My kids loved climbing the rocks up to the waterfall here. It wasn't a huge volume of water because it had been quite dry the few days preceding our visit but it was still fun and beautiful.  more »

  • We took a guide to the rain forest and it was absolutely amazing!!! So pretty and breathe taking. The cost was rather cheap for everything you get and the guide lady was AMAZING!!!! I would recommend if you are in the area to stop by this place and check it out. The only complaint that I would have is that some of the trails are closed due to the hurricanes but that is very understandable so I wouldn't even say it's a complaint! If we come back to PR we will definitely be checking this place out again :)
  • Great views. I expected to swim in the waterfalls but was unable to. The falls I saw were all pretty small. No gas around but there were port a potties all over the place with hand washing stations.
