The Cocalito Falls are located approximately 7 kilometers north of Montezuma, making it a pretty good beach hike that can take about 2 hours, depending on how fast you walk. The walk is beautiful, along pristine and deserted beaches. Often times, you’ll see only a handful of people along the way.The other option for getting to El Chorro is on horseback. This takes less time and can be a really fun for those who enjoy horseback riding!

 

Once you arrive at the falls, you will see that they fall right into the ocean. El Chorro is one of only 7 waterfalls in the world that fall into the ocean. If you climb up to the top, there is a nice, cool, fresh water stream for swimming in and a stunning panoramic view.

 

As mentioned, this is a long hike. It is definitely recommended to start early in the morning when it is not too hot and to bring lots of water, a hat and sunscreen. There is very little shade while walking. The best advice to to cool down by taking a swim and to make sure to stay hydrated!
