  • This cave is kind of a must see when you go to the ruins of Caracol. Created by the River, compared to other beliziane caves is not quite Petite, shows some limestone formations and the presence of bats, has two entrances and is bright. Beauty, however, is worth a stop.

  • 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'...  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.  more »

  • If you're looking for something a bit off the beaten track Rio Frio Cave in Mountain Pine Ridge Preserve is the place for you. Located an hour and a half drive just to the south of the town of San Ignacio the cave is a gem to all foreigner tourists and locals alike. It's an easy drive in with a 4×4, but others should be cautious. Once there a beautiful cavernous world awaits you.
  • Super neat cave, not the best roads to get there but once at the cave the path is sturdy and offers very nice views. The cave has two entrances, the first is quite large and the second is inaccessible unless you want to get wet. Bring a flashlight as the far end of the cave can be dark and there are a few places where falling would be very unpleasant.
  • This is a neat spot for a quick stop, usually on your way to Caracol or the Pine Mountain Reserve. Huge cave with a stream going through - not very long so it only takes 20 minutes or so to explore the entire thing. It's at a beautiful spot deep in the jungle and has a very exotic feel to it.
  • A great stop on the way to Caracol!
  • Not worth going to for adults. But for family and and kids it's ok
