Our family with 3 children enjoyed having a picnic after a swim playing in the streams and waterfall.. it remains one of the highlights of our entire trip for our 7 year old daughter. Very safe and yet so much fun to slide from one pool to another..

On the Mountain Pine Rd, Rio On Pools is a stunning place. A short walk leads to gorgeous pools of water running through ancient boulders. The scenery is incredible. You can sunbathe on the rocks or the shore and swim in the many pools. Be careful, the rocks are extremely slippery. It's best to kind of crawl or slide around... More

This place if big with lots of area to get away from other tourists. Easy access too unlike big rock falls which is a heck a climb. Beautiful pools and rocks in a gorgeous setting. Come early and no one will be there.

Great little stop to make if you're in the area. The water is clear and refreshing and the scenery is fantastic

Stopped at Rio On following our visit to Caracol. Beautiful and refreshing. You can wade or swim in the pools created by the cascading river. This was one of the highlights of our vacaton.

If you like jumping puddles, like you did when you were a kid, you will love this place! It was so much fun…but our time was limited…this could very easily be a full day trip, including a nigh bbq! :)

This is a great place to cool off after visiting Caracol or the Mountain Pine Ridge. We got here in our own vehicle just after the tour groups left (330pm or so) ans were able to enjoy the pools by ourselves. The water is cold and refreshing, there are some small waterfalls you can get close up to and ther... More

You cannot describe this place but it is amazing. First from the viewing area to see how this is a natural wonder, then to hiking in (not a long hike) and taking a dip in these pools. A must experience!!!!

Unless you are going to Caracol, this is not a good day trip on it's own ... (We were told it was and it's not). Horrible, dangerous road ....
