Also known as El Charo de la Leche, which means the "pool of milk," Gozalandia is a hidden oasis of three pools connecting one waterfall.

Gozalandia is a three-tiered waterfall. Most people visit only the first fall, but you can continue on a five minute hike upstream to the second where the water is deep enough to dive into via a rope swing. Another half a mile up the trail leads you to the third pool.


Gozalandia lies on the western side of the island of Puerto Rico, near Isabela; it's to the south-southwest of Quebradillas.

To reach Gozalandia, take Route 115 northeast out of Rincon onto Route 111 East. As you draw near San Sebastian, take 445 north for another half a mile where you will turn right over the bridge and continue on the road for about a mile. There will be two gates to the left. Drive up the path marked for entry, and continue on until you reach the waterfall.
