Trek to Cascada La Mina (La Mina Falls), a waterfall that represents the focal point of one of the park's most popular trails. The waterfall drops over 10.6 m (35 ft) through a maze of rocks and into a scenic pool surrounded by trees. Take a dip in the refreshing mountain water, or hang back to photograph the impressive scenery and the water feature that dominates it. The hike down to the waterfall takes between 30 and 45 minutes, with footbridges cutting across the river that feeds the waterfall several times. While the hike down can be easy enough in good conditions, the route back, uphill and including several sets of concrete stairs, can be tough.
