    Go chasing waterfalls
    If there is a waterfall that I can swim at, the answer is always yes! I did this hike with my parents (who are very fit but 70 years old) and they struggled a bit. The hike is very steep with make shift stairs and they struggled to keep their balance a bit. Once we got down the 100+ stairs, the pool at the bottom to swim in was beautiful, and a local even showed me where it was safe to dive into. Beautiful falls. If you are fit and confident of hiking skills, would recommend

    Great waterfall amazing views and good swimming by the fall.
    Very good waterfall, not crowded. We went there on a Monday morning in late December (busy travel season), and we we were the only people there. Few people showed up around midday, but it was not crowded at all. Drive there from San Ignacio was not too bad, most of the road is paved, but the last 5km was pretty bumpy. Then there was a short walk down on wooden steps which was also easy to manage. The falls were great, amazing views, and swimming in the fall area was amazing. Recommend a visit.

    Beautiful waterfall
    Beware of the hike down to see the falls- very steep and extremely slippery if it has been raining. But the view is well worth the hike if you are up for it. People can go swimming in the area below the falls. I did not get in, so I am not sure how warm the water feels. Wear mosquito repellent and bring a first aid kit in case of falls.

We saw this along with Rio frio on way back from caracol and it made a great spot to jump off rocks and swim in the falls, especially as the water is deep enough where it needs to be.

Nice place to visit in Mountain Ridge Reserve. Hiking distance from Pine Ridge Lodge. The view of falls is quite scenic. You will enjoy swimming here.

This was definitely worth visiting and very private given it is near the Riverlodge and off a long dirt road. We definitely enjoyed our afternoon swimming and hanging out on the rocks.

Absolutely amazing but definitely need to be in somewhat good shape to get to the falls and especially the hike back up. Totally worth it though!

The falls was beautiful. The trip there was a little scary. 😟 There was a heavy rain the night before so the road to the falls was slick clay with some slimy ruts. After we made it to the "parking" lot the trail to the falls was on a steep not well maintained stairway. The falls is beautiful and worth the adventure to get there. It is used as a swimming hole so be prepared if you plan to get pictures.

We walked from Blancaneaux Lodge - a beautiful hike - bring a hat and lots of water.
The hike is not for the faint hearted, the stairs going down are steep - but the waterfall is amazing and the pools are so wonderful and refreshing.

hot even by the middle of the day and don't try it if it's been raining.

This place was stunning and made for a wonderful swim on a hot afternoon. We were just about the only people there, which made for an even more serene experience.
A heads up that this is not incredibly easy to get to (bumpy road, lots of stairs down to the water) but it's absolutely worth it!
