Ojo de Agua is a clear watering hole that is a great place to relax. We enjoyed people watching those who jumped in using the rope swing. The food is so-so and a little over-priced, so I would recommend bringing your own cooler with snacks...More

Hi Brenda, yes there are lockers with enough room for your laptop and small things. They did not charge me for using them unless you loose the key.
