Still waters, but flowing....calm would have been a better description. This gentle pond can be found off the Sierra Palm trail. If you enjoy a secluded pool that is not crowded like the Mina Falls or other natural pools in El Yunque, then this is the one for you. It may mean taking a slightly broken path, but if you bring a towel and bathing suit, you are all set. I didn't have a towel and didn't get to dry off my feet or shoes and almost slipped off the path. Fortunately, I was able to regain my balance and not fall. If you have the health to maneuver this path, it is worth the trek, believe me. The beauty, cool water, natural sounds, including coquis, birds, and babbling brook make this pool spectacular in its own refreshing quiet way.
