If you plan to be in the Cayo District, the Mountain Pine Ridge is definitely worth your time. You could see the attractions in a day from San Ignacio, but I'd recommend staying near the reserve overnight, otherwise you'll have to make the slow, bumpy...More

We didn’t book a tour because we thought we could walk there from San Ignacio. Totally wrong! The front desk guy at our hotel recommended a tour or a taxi to take us there. He hooked us up with a guy named Ben. He took...More

It is a bad unpaved road to the reserve, but once inside it is reasonable. Quite son you can see an abrupt transition from lush jungle vegetation to open pine forrest. Some nice falls in the area, some for swimming like Big Rock falls. Be...More

We visited 6 different waterfalls and they were all pristine and worth the effort. Some, are very accessible such as Big Rock and Rio On Pools, others don't even have a name and are definitely off the beaten path. With a new road being built,...More

Yes, from San Ignacio it is a long bumpy road but it is do-able. Rent a 4x4 and drive yourself, you can do it! We were here in the wet season so not a lot of water: 1000ft fall not worth the visit. Big rock...More

We enjoyed our day in this reserve very much. There's adventure around every corner and that includes the road as well as the scenery! I took a lot of photos but also "snap shots" in my mind forever too. You get a real feel of...More

Yes you can access the waterfall and caves on your own. You'll need a 4WD to drive up there. You can get a guide map of the reserve where it tells you where the caves/pools are. Google maps is also your friend you can map... More
