Posa Azul is Dominicalito's local swimming hole, a crystalline kaleidoscope of green-blue fresh water raining down a 20-foot fall into a wide-mouthed natural pool.

You'll find the waterfall five minutes' drive south of Dominical. Look for the soccer field on the left side of the highway. Take a left before the soccer field, then curve to the right around the back of the field and follow the road veering left for a few hundred yards. You'll come upon a small parking lot across from a trail marked with a little wooden sign saying "Posa Azul".

Local families often visit the pool for a place to cool off and relax. There's a rope swing hanging out off a tree branch for those brave enough to try it out (If it's your first time on a rope swing, the locals will be sure to help you out). The pool itself is wide, deep and cool. Some of the locals like to dive off the top, while others enjoying wading in the flowing waters.
