Little Waterfall in Barton Creek


Barton creek has pristine water and flows year round, and as far as anyone can remember it has never dried up. Beautiful for swimming, this creek holds a variety of small fish and other life such as turtles.

The flow comes from the Pineridge area and the Barton Creek Cave. It runs all the way to the Belize River, which is possible to reach by canoe.
