The falls here run fast & cool, and to & from various pools... Fun to swim in the lesser swift current ones, but be careful of exiting & entering on the rocks, as they can be slippery.

A wonderful, peaceful waterfall and pools, in which you can swim, far from the world. We were alone there the entire time, cross someone leaving on the way down and a couple on the way up. Bring your 4x4 or at least high clearance car,...More

The hike there is worth it! Extraordinary view and you are able to swim right up to the falls! The water is warm enough and the beauty that surrounds it is marvelous!

We visited Big Rock falls from Gaia Riverlodge just up the road (about 10 minutes by bike). It's easy to find the turnout on the main road (there's a sign that says "Big Rock"). Park at the end of that road, it's very short and...More

Aaron from Blancaneaux took us on horseback to these beautiful water falls. The kids jumped into the pools and climbed behind the waterfall. The horses are well kept and well behaved and this was a fantastic few hours spent so highly recommended.

It's a pretty strenuous hike down and back to this special place, but well worth it! It's very refreshing too, on a hot Belize day!

Big Rock Falls was a great day trip and the closest I've ever been to a waterfall. The hike was short and the water felt nice. You do need to be a more experienced swimmer in my opinion to go right underneath the falls as...More

It wouldn't be worth it unless spending the night in the Pine Ridge Forest area. You have to cross the entire country to get there and it would be a waste if you didn't see all the things in between. If you were going to... More
