Fodor's Review

This is a tiny national park (105 acres) with a big waterfall. The Rio Blanco waterfall splashes over rough limestone boulders into a deep pool, which you can jump into for a refreshing swim. You reach the waterfall after hiking a well-marked 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.
