Fodor's Review

About 45 minutes east of Rincón, just north of San Sebastián, are these hidden waterfalls also known as El Charco de la Leche (The Pool of Milk). Though difficult to find, the tiered swimming holes are worth the effort it takes to get there. The first of the three is generally visited by locals, but a five-minute hike upstream will bring you to a second cascade, where the waters are deep enough for diving. A crude rope swing entices adventurers to mimic Tarzan's antics before plunging into the cool spring. Follow the trail about ½ mi (1 km) farther to reach yet a third oasis. From Rincón, take Route 115 northeast to Route 111 east. Near San Sebastián, take the 446 north and continue ½ mi (1 km). Turn right over the bridge and follow the road up about a mile. On the left you will see two gates. One has "No Parking" signs on it and the other looks like an entrance to a park with a cement paved driveway. Go around the larger gate and follow the driveway down to some mud pathways that will lead you to the waterfalls.

Take Precaution and Enjoy GOZALANDIA

Beautiful and fun waterfall. Truly an enchanted island with enchanting waterfalls. Only downside was the crowd of tourists in winter break. The closest parking lot was $5, there are two paths to the closest waterfall. One was paved, and the other was more of a slippery staircase, kinda dangerous for carrying DSLR's. Flash floods are always a danger. And be careful about jumping off the rocks, some kids have gotten seriously hurt out there. Everything

you need to know is further explained here: https://youtu.be/pbGyItrikO0
