Salto Jimenoa Dos

This is a smaller waterfall further North than its bigger sibling, Salto Jimenoa Uno. However, it makes up for its smaller stature in a better swimming area and a more adventurous path to reach it.

Salto Jimenoa Dos is a smaller waterfall that collects in a large pool below that is almost perfect for swimming. The only hindrance is the cold temperature of the water. However, if this does not bother you, than go enjoy the cool water under the falls. The rocky terrain around the waterfall also makes it great place to hike around.
