Swim in natural pools in Belize

bel09-swimnatural-pools-free

Try out wild swimming in the clear waters of countryside rivers and sinkholes.

Pitted with natural swimming holes, the countryside around Mountain Pine Ridge presents countless opportunities for a refreshing swim in the great outdoors. Over a thousand streams begin their seaward journey here, rippling past smooth granite boulders and sandy beaches. Deep, cool natural pools invite you to take a dip in these idyllic surroundings.

Key spots include Big Rock Falls and Rio Branco Falls, which can be visited on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback.
