“Absolutely spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

The view from the falls lookout on the road you ostensibly take to the "1000 foot falls" is OK, but really nothing to write home about. However, we found the remnants of an abandoned half a kilometer from the "tourist center" and went through the jungle and hiked along the roaring river to the actual falls edge. In dry season, you can walk right up to the precipice. The views are breathtaking and you can swim in the pools above the drop.

There is a road that goes to the other side of the falls if you take a much longer route on Cooma Cairn; it's visible on google maps satellite view and there was an obvious trailhead down to the actual falls. However, as we didn't try this route, I have no idea if this road is private. Many of the larger roads you can see either in gmaps or from satellite are actually private and are fenced off.

“Awful road. Not such a good view.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We followed the signs at Pine Ridge to 1000 Foot Falls. It seems like a long, annoying road for such a poor view of the falls. Maybe there is a different viewpoint that we didn't know about?!

“1000` falls”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

If this to be one of Belize's Tourist attractions, It is very sad, run down ,garbage overflowing, no bathrooms so people are just going anywhere. As we understand the 1000` falls has been closed and had asked WHY? and were told to many incidents have happen there, well then if this is the case then it should be closed completely otherwise since tourism percent is up lets use our funds to bring this place back to life, they are not to many places to see or go on the mainland so WHY? wouldn't TOURISM BELIZE leave it like this it is a shambles, seriously consider or it will be lost forever.

“LONG bumpy drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Waterfall is beautiful, would have been great to be able to get closer, but so glad we were able to see this. Be prepared for a very long bumpy drive on a dirt road.

“long hard drive for a run down area with pretty falls”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

drive long and extremely rough road - visitor area at falls very run down and dirty. falls are great, but not really worth the effort of the drive (we come from an area with beautiful falls, so take that into account)
