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 ....

Amazing. What a refreshing way to end a day @Caracol. Immerse yourself in the cool, refreshing waters of the many pools and climb behind the waterfalls !

This didn't have the huge and glamorous water falls that we already saw in Belize - but it was fun climbing over a lot of the rocks. We were apparently getting too close to a dangerous waterfall further down stream but someone from a lookout point started waving their hands and warning us to go no further - we took... More

Lovely spot to stop & cool off after the trip to Caracol. But the rocks are very slippery. I slipped & fell so I didn't make it to the waterfall area. But my daughter did & she loved it
