First of all, you have to remember that this is a natural pool not man made. As far as that goes I think this place is outstanding as the waters were clear and surrounded by so many beautiful streams. The pool itself was surprisingly large and if you dive in with your goggles, you can see a lot of tiny fishes inside. Watch your steps tho the area is very slippery. Great place to cool off.
