The title says it all! This spot is off the beaten path but so, so fun. Great for families, adults, and couples. You can jump from any height you please - I maxed out around 30-35 feet and it was a thrill! Be sure to...More

Take the Chiquibill Road all the way into the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and follow the signs to Gaïa Resort. When you are close you will see sign posts pointing you to the parking lot of the Big Rock Falls. There is no entry...More

Driving to the falls you hardly see anyone, but at the falls it was quite busy, with 40 or so people. Still, there was enough room for a refreshing swim. Unfortunately, after our strenous climb back up to our car you will be all heated...More

The hike to big rock was well worth it! The falls are an excellent place in which to cool of and provide excellent ledges for jumping.

We decided to go against the reviews and find the waterfalls on our own. I’m still not sure if that was a good decision. However, if you’re up for the challenge, follow the signs to Gaia Resort. You will easily reach Big Rock Falls if...More

While perhaps not unique, this remains a fantastic place to spend the day swimming and refreshingly cool water. You can also climb the nearby rock walls and jump from the cliffs, some of which are quite high (the highest is maybe 50 feet). We spent...More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. It’s not easy to find, so get very good directions before you set out. A picnic and water shoes are a good idea. There are quite a few stairs and you’re climbing over boulders so you...More

We went on a Sunday afternoon after visiting Rio On and Rio Frio caves - it was pretty busy here and the hike is actually quite steep in some places, but totally worth it. The falls are gorgeous - we swam as close as we...More

We didn't have a car so we hired a cab driver from San Ignacio for 70BZD ($35 USD) roundtrip – it was so worth it! It’s about 1.25 hours to the waterfall (paved and dirt roads). The waterfall is located within Mountain Pine Reserve and...More

To go there is a bumpy ride and you need own vehicle or off road motorbike as me. The waterfall turn off is not well marked. You have to follow the sign Blanconeux Lodge and latter you will find the sign waterfall. When you get...More

It wouldn't be worth it unless spending the night in the Pine Ridge Forest area. You have to cross the entire country to get there and it would be a waste if you didn't see all the things in between. If you were going to... More

It's a pretty good hike. If I remember right, about 2 to 3 hours.
