On your way back from Caracol, refresh yourself in the strong stream of the ppols

Great cold water with strong stream. Very slippery. water shoes are recommended. If you manage to reach the water fall and sit under, you will have a blast!

Our tour guide from Black Rock Lodge stopped here on our way back from our visit to Caracol. We enjoyed a refreshing swim in the lovely pools and waterfall. Be careful of the rocks which can be very slippery.

We drove here on our own and spent a couple hours hiking, swimming and basking. Beautiful views, lots of water and friendly locals.

We arrived at Rio on Pools around 2pm. It was really really hot. The rocks were incredibly hot and as a result, we didn't even bother to put our swimsuits on. We would have burned our feet stepping on the rocks. The formation is beautiful but, meh. I wouldn't have missed it if we hadn't stopped.

This is a beautiful area for swimming, reading a book, listening to the water, just sitting on a rock in the water, or wading. Very relaxing and not crowded.

We were happy to have found this spot for a relaxed day away from tourism. My son enjoyed playing/swimming with some local friends he made. It is a marble formation which makes it very slippery; Beware! It really is beautiful but nothing that took my breath away... Perhaps I could have explored a little more. A short hike and you're...

Several nice pools to swim in. Beautiful surroundings. Nice stop after Caracol. Primitive place to change into bathing suite. Very remote.

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.
