Latest Check-Ins

Great spot! We spent 4 nights here and absolutely loved it. Drive to the military check point first to get permission to stay overnight. Don't miss Rio Frio Cave and Big Rock Falls. There were a few back flies, mostly at dawn and dusk.

We stayed here 4 nights for free. PERFECT spot and good hub for exploring the pine ridge. Rio on pools, five sister falls, big rock fall and Rio frio cave just around the corner. Friendly military was checking on our safety every afternoon. Besides lunch hours we had the whole picnic area for ourselves. "Private" pools just down the stairs with water for treating. Beautiful at night. We didn't have mosquitos and the temperature cooled down to enjoy some nice sleeps.

We camped here for a night and went to the ruins the day after. The pools are nice to cool off and you will see a few tourists in the afternoon, but no one is around at night.

We were told in San Ignacio you need 4x4 & high clearance which we have BUT you don't need. We took road from SI not Georgeville. there are a couple of rough patches but nothing insurmountable by most vehicles. Go; it's worth it. we did not camp but you certainly could. had a great swim.

The pools and waterfalls are beautiful but the campsite itself is just alright. There are some picnic tables if you needed to get out of the rain. The day we came no one else was around. Free

After going to Caracol we pulled off at Rio on Pools and camped at the picnic tables. It was a beautiful spot with only a couple other tourists during the day. And a nice refreshing bath after the hot day at Caracol! Free!

Here you could also sleep if you want. Unfortunately it rained for us and we continued. The Rio On Pools are then removed 2-3min walkway from the car park.
