Rio On Pools, Cayo

4.4
#6 of 20 in Nature in Cayo
Immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility of nature at Rio On Pools. Dip into cool, calm granite pools that feed from water cascading down rocks. Surrounded by lush green vegetation, the nearby grassy area makes for a great spot to enjoy a picnic while listening to the sound of water flowing downstream. Bring good water shoes and be careful when traversing the granite, as the rocks can be very slippery.

  • Beautiful place that you could see when you come back from Caracol. It's really not necessary to have a guide to go there.  more »
  • We went as a last stop on the tour to Caracol. Very picturesque place but very cold water. Almost nobody bathed it. There are no bathrooms... only a small changer. Slippery rocks.

  • Fantastic place for a swim on any day! Wandering between the pools on the rocks, or wading through them to get between beautiful rapids is a relaxing and refreshing experience. Has changed rooms and an easily usable trail.
  • Great place to stop for a swim on the way back from Caracol. It’s a short walk down to the falls where you will find many good places to relax in the sun.
  • Easily accessible from the road to Caracol. Well worth a short side trip. There are two main areas here. The lower pools have steep and scary steps down with no rails. The upper part is much easier to access and wade around in.
  • Absolutely awesome place! The waterfall massage was great, make sure you go for a swim! Also make sure to use Insect repellant cos the botlas flies will get you otherwise.
  • One of the more accessible areas of Mountain Pine Forest - easy to park and not very crowded. Free entry. Opportunity to swim in the pools and under a waterfall after a short, steep downhill walk. Note that roads leading to forest are bumpy and you will have to go slow, took a very long time to get from main roads to forest -- 4 wheel drive highly recommended. You will also be stopped on the way to have your license plate recorded. No bathrooms.
