Coco Cascades

This pair of little waterfalls offer a contrast to some of the more mighty ones in the area. An easy hike's distance, it is a good choice for those short on time or with small children.

Two small flows make up Coco Cascades, and while they may not be big and mighty like other on the island, the small size allows hikers to get right under them for a unique and exotic experience, complete with a rain forest setting.
