A spectacular cascade with many pools for swimming and wading. It can be busy on the weekends. Its accessibility is totally dependent on water levels. The entire cascade cannot be viewed from the top, but rather from a turnout by the road on the top...More

We stopped here on the way back from Caracol. It is a very nice area. The water was cold. There were not many people at the pools on the day we visited. There are no toilet facilities that I saw.

Rio on the Pools in hands down one of my favorite places in Belize. You can spend an hour, a day or days (bring a place to sleep) hanging out at the spot. The waterfalls can be used as nature's masseuse, the water is clear,...More
