Easy to find small park with nice grounds and many birds in the area. The fresh water is cool and refreshing, and we'd recommend trying to visit on a slow day ( no school trips, etc. ) to have the area pretty much to yourself.

I went and it had been raining a lot so the water level had risen significantly. I didn't swim but it did look very refreshing. It's a fairly straightforward path there. If you have injury/limp/etc I'd recommend taking the stairs that start close to the...More

We went here on our way back from Placencia to Belmopan. If you are in the area and have nothing better to do, it's OK for a quick stop, since the mosquitoes won't allow you to enjoy it for much.

We stayed at Ian Anderson's caves Branch Resort across the highway and walked over one day. What a lovely surprise. We met a few locals and enjoyed the cool relaxing water. A great place to go relax and cool off.
