The cascades at this popular tourist stop have stained the rocks a honeycomb yellow due to the pyrite (fool's gold) deposits picked up by the water as it passes through the area. You'll find the waterfall two bus stops from the Gold Ecological Park as you head towards the sea (which is also a yellowish hue, dubbed 'ying-yang sea', from the river outflow).
