We (3 adults & 3 young ones- two 8 year olds and a 3 year old) had a fun rainy day adventure at La Mina Falls! It was raining like crazy so we decided to take the quick hour drive from our hotel in San Juan to the rain forest. The drive is easy and well marked and the hike... More

Tough hike back up to the parking area but well worth the effort! Water was cold but invigorating. Beautiful site!!

It is a very long walk (VERY VERY LONG) and it is very physical so make sure you are prepared to walk up hill and down hill - sometimes very steep. Wear good shoes and take an umbrella. You can swim in the water beneath the falls when you get there.

Be sure to take the time to view and swim in the falls. Rain poncho, camera, swimsuit, snacks, water and hiking or water shoes.

The earlier you can get here, the better. We arrived around 11 am and it was a little busy but by noon it was absolutely crazy. Nice hike, there are two options to hike, we took the easier hike which was still not easy (medium difficulty). Beautiful forest and scenery.

The first time we went there was after a long hike so it was afternoon by the time we reached the La Mina trail. It was very crowded. So we decided to go there again early in the morning as soon as the forest opens (there are gates at night). This time took the Big Tree trail, which is a... More

Quite a long hike and slippery in places. This is the rainforest, so expect rain, humidity and bugs. Bug spray a necessity. A beautiful waterfall awaits you, where you can swim and cool off. Plenty of birds and fauna to see along the way.

This a great place to walk to see the falls and experience the tropical rain forest. The trail is up and down but is worth the 07 tenth of a mile walk.

My friend and hiked to the La Mina Falls and it is a pretty easy hike. It is 1/2 mile to the falls and then the same walk back to the parking lot. There are quite a few parking spaces in the lot and on the road. There is a pool at the foot of the falls that you can... More
