This landmark stands in a quiet area 15 minutes from downtown RWC or San Carlos. A pretty place to visit, not much to see or do, but a nice breath of fresh air and a different monument of rushing water.

If you live nearby, you should stop by one day. It's interesting but short. You can't walk very far.

This is a very interesting attraction that is hidden just off of Cañada Road. Easy to bike to and good for the family.

For those who love classical architecture and things built in the thirties when nature was honored, the Pulgas Water Temple is a great place to see. There is an expansive lawn on which to picnic. On a warm summer day this cannot be beat.

Stunning backdrop for an intimate wedding! The entire wedding party walked on the path until they reached the lawn and down the aisle. The small orchestra played, and guests held paper parasols for the sun. It was warm, the ceremony was sweet and personal-just magical....More
