Gorgeous location and a nice place to cool off on the road back from Caracol. Had a great time playing in the waterfall and paddling around until ... yikes! Leeches! Definitely could have done without slimy things making toward my private bits. I had enough of that in college.

Beautiful, refreshing, peaceful, terrific!!!!!!!!!!!! After a long day at the ruins, this was the perfect place to have a picnic, get cooled off and hang out. It's so pretty, a total oasis... Like a spa really.

My husband and I went here on the first day of our honeymoon and had a great time. We were the only ones here and enjoyed cooling off in the pools. The rocks are slippery though so we did not travel too far down the pools. So pretty and relaxing. Bring sun screen as there is not really any sun protection unless you are in the water the whole time. We both got burnt here worse than anywhere else on our trip throughout Belize. It takes about 1.5 hours to get here from San Ignacio and the road is indeed bumpy and must be traveled slowly. Worth the visit- one of a kind. Enjoy Belize's natural beauty!

Wonderful place to explore, hike and swim. Small waterfalls, graint slides, clear warm water. Lovely afternoon spent here.

Great driving trip past the Big Rock Falls - pink orchids cling to the rocks. We went on to the Rio Frio Cave, with its limestone terraces scaling the walls. We were a little daunted by the military convoy that arrived on their way back from Carocal, but they were friendly enough.The Rio On Pools were great for a dip.
