Set on the grounds of Villa Miriam, a private residence, a series of pools fed by the San Rafael River run through the property, gushing from the area’s lush hills. These natural pools are open to the public for a small entrance fee, and it’s the perfect spot for either a romantic or family escape away from the beach and the intense heat. Check with your hotel to arrange for a visit to the residence and its outdoor facilities.

Close by is La Lista, a small town famous for its wooden rocking chairs and other arts and crafts from wood. Some 22 workshops fill the town.
