|Rio Blanco National Park|
If you are looking for adventure off the beaten path, then the Rio Blanco Waterfall Park in the Toledo district might be just what you are looking for.
Declared an ‘Indigenous People’s Park’ in 1992, the reserve is managed by residents of the surrounding Maya villages of Santa Elena, Santa Cruz, Golden Stream Village and Pueblo Viejo Village under the title of the Rio Blanco Mayan Association (RBMA). The members of RBMA see the preservation of the ecosystem as a top priority and believe the park is a culturally appropriate and sustainable economic venture.
Six miles south of San Antonio, this park is a popular stop for locals and visitors. A small sign on the roadside points the direction to the entrance of the park. The jungle-lined trail is only a mile from the road.
This is a secluded spot for swimming and picnicking and there will be no heavy tourist traffic here. The Maya have lived along this river for countless generations and it is still an important part of their daily lives. You are likely to encounter the village women washing clothes in the river as their children play in the pools or sell souvenirs and craft they have made.
