Swim at El Ataud

El Ataud - Search Nearby - Added by Danny McGee

Several waterfalls cascade into deep pools in the jungle near Adjuntas, which makes for the perfect setting to cliffjump, swim, and escape the heat of the day. 

If you're heading out of Adjuntas, take Route 10 N and make a right onto Route 123 N, follow that until you can make a left onto Route 123 S. Go South on Route 123, then turn right onto Route 522 (follow the signs for Parador Sotomeyer). When you get there, go to the left. The road will make several 'V's" but just stay on the main road. At one of the V’s, you’ll notice a bridge to your left. Use that bridge to cross the river and then continue up the road to the right. In about 5 minutes you will come to a place where there are little lots on the side of the road to park. There is an unmarked trail that leads down to the falls. The trail will lead you to the top of the falls, you have to do a bit of rock scrambling to get down to the bottom / swimming hole. There are several places to cliff jump on the other side of the pool.
