  • Tons of free sight seeing. Quiet with very little traffic in the off season. Some of the sights you can go see are breath taking. I can't wait to go back!
  • Amazing place in the jungle. Nice waterfalls, wild animals and so much to see!
  • Loads of waterfalls, rivers, and other places to visit including the two hydroelectric dams, and loads of hiking trails.
  • There is quite a bit to do here. Whether you are visiting Francis Coppola's Bleaucaneux Lodge to Big Rock Falls, off road riding, Rio Frio pools, 1000ft falls there is much to see here. It's also on the way to Caracol, Belize's greatest Mayan Pyramids.
  • Mountains, lots of view, bumpy road
