We stopped on our way back from Caracol. It was a hot day and the pools were fun and refreshing. Bring water shoes and watch smaller children as there are deeper spots and currents.

We made the mistake of deciding to drive here ourselves after several days of heavy rains. Our rental SUV had 4wd but it was not the proper vehicle for the red clay roads. The pools are beautiful and worth the drive. Going with a guide...More

We could have spent the whole day there walking on rocks, falling in water, climbing tiny boulders in water. Don't make our mistake driving on our own on a rainy day. The roads become muddy and the tires will have no traction. We were stuck...More

The pools can be visited on your own if you have a vehicle, and likewise the cave... Have to pay good attention to maps and limited signage. Cave is not spectacular, but if you are staying in the area, definitely worth a visit.

Rio On Pools is gorgeous. Took us a bit of while to get there from the city, 3hrs in private vehicle. But the views was so worthy of the distance.

Great place to cool off, and so many different pools, even if there are some folks didn't feel too busy (although there were only small vehicles when we were there, no tours). Was a great stop to cool off after visiting Caracol.

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

We went on a Sunday so it was busy (esp since it's a little out of the way). That said, we had a blast. Lots of small pools and mini-waterfalls, very refreshing and lots of different areas to hang out and splash around in. My...More

We spent hours here sliding down the rapids and into the swimming pools! My kids (ages 8-11) found every rapid to slide and said it was better that the whitewater park near us at home!
