Last minute I decided to add Big Rock Falls and they where super accommodating. They messaged me in advance to let me know of list of items they would provide and what I would need to bring which was extremely helpful. Our guide Rudy was extremely knowledgeable and kind.

Hi Naadiya, I'm so glad you enjoyed Barton Creek and Big Rock Falls and I agree it is a perfect tour for a hot day in Belize. I hoped you got some awesome pics and a water massage at Big Rock. We hope to see you soon in Belize. Maybe you can hike to the 1000ft falls on your next trip.
