The Basaltic Prisms of Santa Maria Regla (Spanish: Prismas Basálticos) are tall geometric columns of basalt rock which were created by the slow cooling of volcanic lava. The prisms decorate the walls of the impressive Santa Maria Regla canyon, which also features four waterfalls that feed the dam of San Antonio Regla. The entrance to the Prisms include access to the canyon, green areas, restaurants, playgrounds, sport courts, swimming pool, wading pool, a suspension bridge and viewpoints. Some other activities, such as zip line, are paid extra.

The Basaltic Prisms are beautiful and definitely worth visiting. However, I didn’t like how much they were ruined by the surrounding shops and restaurants. But if you pretend you don’t see the latter, then the the place is really charming. You can admire the Prisms from above crossing a fun suspension bridge or you can go all the way down to the canyon where you can see the Prisms from up close and might even get splashed by the waterfalls. Some kids might also enjoy the zip line, which goes above the canyon (my loved it). After you are done with exploring the Prisms you can have a snack at one of the many restaurants which are right next to the nature sight.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.
During the weekend Prisms can get really crowded. If I go there again I would do it in the morning to avoid crowds.
