A cool refreshing stop at Hoyo Azul is a must-see for those venturing to Scape Park. We loved it and enjoyed the views for over an hour.

It's a place to visit once, but not more. Water is very cold, so only the most daring can tolerate swimming in it. Not much else to see other than this sink hole.

This place is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. The water is beautiful and blue and you can see all the rocks at the bottom. You must go see!

Cool place to visit just to say that you have. Beautiful place but the water is freezing cold. There’s also huge bee hives on the rock face above the water. Many people were getting stung & welting up during our visit.

Look on Scape Park's website price for just one attraction. You get to spend about 45 minutes at Hoyo Azul. It is a great time!
