When on your way to Caracol a quick stop here is a great treat. This cave is large and very interesting. It has a river that runs through it and is very expansive.

We visited Rio Frio Cave during a self-driving trip to Rio On Pools and Big Rock Falls. We were stunned by how large the cave is, and you can just go in, no entrance fee, climb around and explore. It's big, and the entrance is...More

The views from inside the cave to the jungle canopy outside is stunning! We had a picnic on the sand beach inside and enjoyed climbing around the rock formation. The kids played in the shallow river.

We stopped at this cave on the way to Caracol. The entrance is big. There is a large domed cavern. It isn't very long. There are steps in the cave.

This was our first cave we visited in Belize, so we don’t have anything to compare it to in terms of size or wonderment, but we thought it was a great cave. Roads getting to it are terrible, but it’s worth it. Bring a head...More

This is one of my favorite places to visit in Belize. It's not the biggest cave, nor the most off the beaten trail cave, or the hardest to get to, it's just simply cool. It reminds of the land of the lost. The river comes...More
