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.
