The Golden Stream, in the Toledo district

The Golden Stream waterfall and pool is situated near Golden Stream Village along the Southern Highway. The road leading to the falls is on the west side of the highway, just after the Golden Stream Gift Shop (a thatch roofed hut painted blue). This road ends at a small field where the pool is hidden by a single line of trees. A narrow slippery path leads down to the main pool. Young Maya Boy at Golden Stream Pools

Tall trees and thick vegetation grow along both sides of the crystal clear stream. Small waterfalls tumble from a two foot ledge into a big pool varying in depth from 2 to 6 feet deep. Further up the river, gentle cascades tumble over a short ledge of limestone boulders into a smaller pool.

The pools are separated by an upper level of flat limestone covered with shallow grooves which create small puddles. Two flat stones near the edge of the river reveal patches of threadbare material-evidence that the Maya villagers frequently use the area to wash their clothes and bathe.
