Playa Cocalito is an exciting two hour one-way hike through jungles, beaches, and rivers. If you prefer to walk, the way is a mix of shady trails in the jungle along the coastline and sandy scenic beaches between rocks. Be sure to check the tide chart to hike during the low tide hours and take plenty of water and fruit, sunscreen and hat.
The best way to reach Playa Cocalito is on horseback as it is 4 km away from Montezuma. The white sand beach and clear blue waters are only part of the beauty. The real magic is the waterfall that drops from the river into the ocean, 10 meters below.
This beautiful waterfall is one of only seven waterfalls in the world that falls into the sea. And you can find it at Playa Cocalitos, part of Romelia Refuge, five miles (8 km) north of town. The “El Chorro” cascades stunningly from a cliff into lava rock pools and the ocean. The falls are beautiful, often reflecting rainbows, and feature a beach cove with an incredibly scenic look. It is just like a poster! But with you in it!
