You can get here by car and it is free. The rocks can be very slippery so be careful. Great to combine with trip to Caracol. Be aware there are also small black leeches in the water and they will like you. Worth it!!
Follow the signs and you will end up at a covered scenic lookout of the pools and its cascading waterfalls. There is a very steep set of stairs that lead down from there but if you want to get in the pools head back up the road until you see a turnout and an unmarked trail head. Park there and... 更多
The water is refreshing and the pools are only a short easy walk from the parking area. Changing areas are available if you are bashful. Rocks are slick so take you time getting to the water and testing the surety of your footing. The Rio Pools can get busy when the tours start to leave Caracol but there still seemed... 更多
If you're passing by Rio on the Pools, then you're hot and sticky. Water was refreshing, atmosphere relaxing. Can't go wrong to dive in. A beer would have made this stop, just that much better.
Some reviewers said to wear water shoes or Keens. I went barefoot. I don't think shoes would give a grip to save you from slipping on these rocks. By going barefoot, you can test/feel if there's a slippery spot or not. With each step, you can find the non-slippery spots and work your way down to the water. Some parts... 更多
Our guide Adrian stopped at a lookout of the pools and we knew we were in for a wonderful, relaxing afternoon. The pools are a short easy hike from the road and we took along a picnic to enjoy beside the pools and falls. We were the only visitors for the 1st hour or so but even when others joined,... 更多
Rio On Pools was a nice place to cool off and relax after exploring Caracol. I wouldn't make the drive for the pools alone, but they were a nice addition to our trip to Caracol. We also made a stop at Big Rock Falls right afterwards. The entrance to Rio On Pools is down a small side road that is... 更多
Just to echo other comments, it is very fun place to enjoy climbing around and splashing in the water. It isn’t worth the drive by itself but should be included in any itinerary to the Mountain Pine Reserve. There is a changing stall with walls on 3 sides.
What a beautiful stop on the way through Pine Ridge while headed back from to Caracol! It was a rainy day in Cayo, so we didn't get to stop and picnic on a rock as I would have liked, but we wandered around in the pools with water shoes and took in the views. A great stop for couples or... 更多
