We went all the way to the river before getting our guide. Ruth is a freelance guide and provided my husband and I with a fantastic afternoon. Don't just do a river tube adventure - see Crystal Cave. Sturdy river shoes (not water socks) and prepare for some uneven terrain. Not slippery. Great fun!

This was a lot of fun, the tubing great, but you are a bit rushed. The cave guide was very nice and knowledgeable. He kept saying that the water would be VERY refreshing (cold) but it wasn't bad at all, probably mid sixties. You wear a helmet with a miners light, as it is very dark in the cave. It's... More

Very cool and educational. But you need to be comfortable in an inner tube and dark places. We thought it was great.

Start at 7:30am with hotel pickup. About 1-1/2 hour drive from San Ignacio to Blue Hole national park. Walk 30 minutes to get to Crystal cave and its HOT walk in the jungle. Get cave introduction by caving guides on safety. Get cave equipment of hard hat and head lamp. The cave is very high humidity (no air movement). I'm... More

After about 1.5 hours on the bus we arrived at the caves which were very remotely located. Our guide gave us very colorful history and background of Belize and the Mayan culture. You will get wet (okay very wet) on your way thru the cave. Our cave guide also provided lots of info about the jungle plants, Mayan ceremonies and... More

Visited here when ATM was closed, and were recommended to go to Mountain Cow Cave with Carlos. The guide Rudy was full of information about the cave and Mayan culture. He made sure we were safe at all times and explained the best way through the caves. Amazing surroundings and a great day.

I'm not much a cave explorer but going to crystal cave was well worth it. We used Cayo Adventures and found them great. Reliable and knowledgable. They even catered for dietary requirements.

Okay, we paid extra to go cave tubing at crystal cave, rather than a plain cave. And it was really a mistake. You get to go into two caverns and do a tiny walk on foot. Yes there are a lot of huge stalagmites, but as caves go this just wasn't impressive. And you have to climb down many, many... More
