Fodor's Review

This tiny national park (105 acres) has a big waterfall—the Rio Blanco, which splashes over rough limestone boulders into a deep pool; you can jump into it for a refreshing swim. The waterfall can be reached via a well-marked hiking trail. Upstream a short distance from the falls is a nice area for a picnic, shaded by trees and flowering bushes. The park is managed by residents of nearby Mayan villages including Santa Elena, Santa Cruz, Golden Stream, and Pueblo Viejo. Park access is much easier since the completion of the San Antonio Road; you can visit on your own, though some tour operators in PG include Rio Blanco in their tours.
