Refresh Yourself

If you’re planning a hike or adventure through the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, we know a great place to stop for a break and cool off. Rio On Pools, located less than a half hour from the Hidden Valley Inn, is a series of cool, crystal-clear pools separated by smooth granite rocks, punctuated with picturesque waterfalls. The downstream motion of the river makes for a natural waterslide, and provides a refreshing dip as well as hours of fun. You can sunbathe on the banks, sit under one of the waterfalls, or hop from rock to rock (although this is definitely an activity for sure-footed travelers!). Rio On Pools is also a stop on our tour of the Mayan site Caracol, so there are plenty of opportunities to visit! Just make sure you remember your camera.
