San Rafael River’s crystal clear waters gush down from the mountains all the way to the beach of San Rafael, forming the most perfect natural water park–with multiple pools and cascades–where residents and visitors can cool off in the shade and swim. It’s an enjoyable day out near the beach and the Caribbean Sea, which sits below, and a great spot to experience a slice of life in the southwest.
