It is a long way on rough roads, and there is nothing but the view at the end of it, so take your own refreshments, although there are washrooms. The Falls can only be seen from a distance from this viewpoint, but the view over the jungle canopy, the falls and the hills in the distance is quite breathtaking.

Beautiful waterfall. Nice, informative staff. But you are basically driving well over 5 miles up a dirt road to see partial of a waterfall. The view is nice if you are out and about in the area but not worth a trip just to see. Apparently you can no longer hike down to see more closely, although we wouldn't have... More

The 1000 foot falls is located in Mountain Pine Ridge in the Mayan Mountains of the Cayo District. It's not extremely easy to get to but it is really a site to behold. If you can hit it after a heavy rain the falls will be roaring.

Very pretty location, scenic and relaxing. This would be a good place to stop for a picnic lunch, a dip in the water or just to stretch your legs as we did.

Belize is not a country with spectacular waterfalls (if you are looking for them). Driving through Mountain Pine Ridge in itself is an adventure and you will need good clearance and patience. 1000' falls is definitely Not worth the drive and effort because you can't even get near the falls and see it from a distance. See it from a... More

We were there a while ago, but the place still resonates in my memory. While quite a drive, the whole Mountain Pine area is beautiful.

While the falls are actually about 1,600 feet in height, you can only see about 2/3 of them from the vantage point which is above the falls and quite distant. It was disappointing to be unable to see their full length as is shown in the advertisements. Add an hour's trip down a rough, unpaved road and this is not... More

These falls are amazing and the man that lives next to them was so friendly and the area was beautiful. We packed a lunch and ate, waiting 30 minutes and the fog disappeared. It was a perfect way to spend our day!
