Enjoyed the stop. Have seen other falls that match this at home. Surrounded by the rainforest, beautiful. Very popular. Road to the falls is curvy and narrow.

It was a nice, quick stop to make on our way up to La Mina. The falls weren't flowing much compared to the other pics I've seen, so it's hit or miss depending on water flow. The bonus on the low water flow is there is a super nice hidden flat rock by the falls for a picnic!

Park and walk two minutes. Visible from the road. Get wet but no swimming like La Mina not big enough.

We found La Mina to be much more impressive on our hike. Maybe it was just the day we came, but it was just like a small trickle down the side of a rock face. I'd probably skip it next time.

Looked pretty cool and took some pictures but would not be worthy of a special trip without seeing something else as well. Was at least easy to see as it was right along the road!

La Coca falls are big and picturesque, but they are not worth more than a 2 minute stop or even a drive-by. The challenge is there are big rocks which make the water inaccessible unlike the La Mina falls - though you will see a few people trying to get in, but try at your own risk.

You can see La Coca right from your car as you drive past on your way to La Mina. It's a very pretty cascade flowing over a large rock formation. For us, we were under some time pressure, so we decided not to stop so that we would have more time at La Mina and the Yokahu tower. In retrospect,... More

Pretty waterfall coming over a large rock face. Nothing overly spectacular - but pretty. Worth a roadside stop and photo. Go early - before it gets crowded. We spent maybe 5-10 minutes here at most.

If you haven't been to a lot of waterfalls or it's really hot and you could use some cooling off, La Coca Falls is a nice place to visit. It is about a 30min hike up/down hills and stairs from both access points so should be able to handle moderate physical activity. When we were there, it was quite crowded... More
