Part of the Vaca Plateau in the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve, Big Rock Falls is an impressive 60-foot waterfall boasting two large, deep emerald pools filled with spring water perfect for swimming or, for the more adventurous, cliff jumping.  The water from the peaks of the Maya Mountains rusher over giant granite rock outcroppings and down the waterfall.  The footpath to the falls is a 15-minute hike and involves some difficult climbing down hand hewn stairs to the valley below.  Once to the water, you must walk over the large slabs of not-so-flat and sometimes slippery granite to reach the falls.  This site is amazing, but only for those who are in moderate physical condition.  This site can be substituted with Rio On Pools.

Drive Time From Table Rock: 45 minutes

Adventure Level: Strenuous.  The drive is 13 miles on unpaved roads and the hike down to the falls can leave even the fittest traveler’s legs sore the next day.

Available as a Full Day trip with the Mountain Pine Ridge Tour, or as a package with Caracol Ruins or Xunantunich Ruins.
