Gozalandia! Waterfall Magic!

My fashion:

Skirt: Hilbuco
Bathing suit: CinShein
Shoes: Ipanema
Hat: Cuban

There are many beautiful and interesting places in Puerto Rico but if I had to choose my favorite will be the waterfalls.  There are many little ones here and some incredible spectacular ones. One of them is Gozalandia.

This is not my first time there, I visited it when it was just a wild waterfall, and to get there, we had to trespass private property. Now they have been many improvements. It is a fully organized and accessible tourist attraction. Not sure if great for nature but definitely much easier for the tourists. Now there is a pathway and stars to take you all the way down. Easy breezy!

Waterfalls (cascadas or saltos, in Spanish) are one of those natural beauties that will always be breathtaking. Gozalandia or Las Cataratas or El Roble Waterfall in San Sebastian is sometimes called the secret waterfall even though it is actually becoming more and more popular.

Gozalandia is located in San Sebastian and the waterfall is pretty tall (about 50 feet), it also pretty wide (about 20-30 feet). There was a pool at the bottom of the falls that people swim in that is deep and clean, you can see a lot of fish swimming there. This beauty has even been in a few movies (most recently “A Perfect Getaway”)!

The pool is deep enough that, some people jump off of the rocks into the water.  Locals will show off their bravery and skills. Pretty cool and scary at the same time!

There is a space for swimming and hanging out in front of the pool and also many hiking paths! The views are amazing and the time there truly magical!

Since the waterfall is more accessible now, not an extreme hike or climb any more, anyone can enjoy it!
I had a blast!

W Puerto Rico jest wiele pięknych i interesujących miejsc, ale gdybym miała wybierać, moje ulubione są  wodospady. Jest tu wiele malutkich i kilka niesamowitych ogromnych i spektakularnych. Jednym z nich jest Gozalandia.

To nie jest mój pierwszy raz tam, odwiedziłam go, gdy był to tylko dziki wodospad, a żeby się tam dostać, musieliśmy wkroczyć na teren prywatny. Teraz wprowadzono wiele ulepszeń. Jest to w pełni zorganizowana i dostępna atrakcja turystyczna. Nie jestem pewna, czy to jest dobre dla natury, ale zdecydowanie łatwiejsze dla turystów. Teraz jest ścieżka i schody, które zaprowadzą cię na sam dół. Bułka z masłem!

Wodospad Gozalandia (po hiszpańsku cascada lub salto) to jedna z tych naturalnych piękności, które zawsze będą zapierać dech w piersiach. Gozalandia, Las Cataratas czy El Roble Waterfall w San Sebastian jest czasami nazywany tajemniczym wodospadem, mimo że w rzeczywistości staje się coraz bardziej popularny.

Gozalandia znajduje się w San Sebastian,\ jest dość wysoki (około 50 stóp), ale także dość szeroki (około 20-30 stóp). Na dnie wodospadu jest basen, w którym można poplywać bo jest dość głęboki i czysty, można tam zobaczyć wiele pływających ryb. Ta piękność pojawiła się nawet w kilku filmach (ostatnio „A Perfect Getaway”)!

Basen jest na tyle głęboki, że niektórzy ludzie zeskakują ze skał do wody. Miejscowi popisują się swoją odwagą i umiejętnościami. Całkiem fajne i jednocześnie przerażające!

Jest miejsce do pływania i spędzania czasu przy basenie, a także wiele szlaków turystycznych! Widoki są niesamowite, a czas tam naprawdę jest magiczny!

Ponieważ wodospad jest teraz bardziej dostępny, a nie ekstremalna wędrówka ani wspinaczka, każdy może się nim cieszyć!
Ja świetnie się bawiłam!
