The water that flows down and through the Maya Mountain range has created some truly awe-inspiring vistas. At the Rio On pools, you can skip up and down rock formations to find one of the literal small pools to sit and take a dip. Not much a place for swimming per say as the pools aren’t extensive or deep but perfect for a refreshing dip and a few hours of relaxed lounging while you listen to the trickles and roars as the water cascades over the rocks.

A bonus to visiting this locale which wasn’t mentioned because it’s part of another category is the Rio Frio cave, a tall open cave mouth perfect for those who want to take a peek but not dive into the extreme adventure that are the likes of ATM and Barton Creek.

If you love history, ancient ruins, and off-the-beaten-path adventures, you’ll want to add the Caracol Mayan Ruins in Belize to your list of places to see! Tucked away in the jungle of Western Belize, Caracol is a hidden gem that makes a unique (and super adventurous) addition to your Belize itinerary.

Caracol is the largest known ancient Maya site in Belize and among the largest in the world. It had a complex urban center spreading over 200 square kilometers and a population of over 100,000 people at its height.

Caracol was connected to other Mayan cities throughout Belize, Mexico, and Guatemala, and engaged in several notable conflicts with Tikal, before its eventual collapse around 1000AD.

Archaeologists rediscovered Caracol in 1937, and it has since served as an important resource for understanding Ancient Mayan civilizations.

Caracol is one of the best Mayan ruins in Central America, and makes the perfect adventure for anyone wanting to get off the beaten path. Classified as a true hidden gem, Caracol is arguably the most under exploited ruin in Belize.
