Davis Falls in Belize | Waterfalls in Belize, Central America

Davis Falls in Belize

Located near Dangriga in southeastern Belize, Davis Falls is one of the most iconic natural attractions in the country. With a total height of around 500 feet (120 meters), Davis Falls is second only to Thousand-Foot Falls, making it the second-tallest waterfall in the country.

Why You Have to Do a tour of Davis Falls

As the second-largest waterfall in Belize, Davis Falls is one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in Belize. Due to its remote location deep in the rainforest of southeastern Belize, the entire Davis Falls area is a great place to experience the natural beauty of Belize.

The nearby citrus orchards add a delicious perfume to the air, making Davis Falls feel like a small corner of Paradise. The 75-feet deep pond at the base of the falls is filled with crystal clear water, making it the ideal place to enjoy a picnic or a refreshing swim on a hot day.

Where in Belize is Davis Falls Located?

The road to Davis Falls begins at mile marker 14.5 of the Hummingbird Highway near Dangriga in southeastern Belize. To reach the falls, you must drive for eight miles along an extremely rough road (accessible to four-wheel drive vehicles only), followed by a hike on foot for two miles.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Davis Falls?

As a natural landmark, Davis Falls is available for exploration all year-round. Be aware, however, that the access road may become impassible following heavy rains.

There is a BZD $10 fee to enter the Davis Falls area.

The Best Way to Experience Davis Falls

Most visitors prefer to get to Davis Falls aboard a rugged ATV that can handle the slippery, tortuous road that leads to the site. Private companies offer guided ATV tours of the area and transportation using rugged four-wheel drive vehicles to traverse the seven river crossings that must be forded in order to reach Davis Falls.

Once at the site, the best way to enjoy Davis Falls is by enjoying a swim in the refreshingly cool waters at the base of the waterfall. There are also a number of marked hiking trails in the area that allow visitors to learn more about the flora and fauna in the area.

Guided tours include education about the wildlife in the area as well as harvesting edible foods such as jelly coconuts that grow around Davis Falls.
