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

Fun and interesting. Don't miss out. We'll worth the time and money. Water is cool and relaxing. Caves are exotic.

The best adventure I have ever had in my entire life, and one of the scariest. I would recommend it to anyone if you are in good shape not the easiest tour like if you were in America. One of the best parts is when you are you can go swimming at the Blue Pool after to the trip to... More

Like scuba diving the Blue Hole, no trip to Belize would be complete without scampering down the depths of the Crystal Cave complex but make sure you go "all the way" to the end - it gets more challenging the deeper down you go thanks the gods the guides know what they are doing! You need to be reasonably physically... More

Awesome day ziplining and cave tubing. Recommend for anyone willing to take a trip off the beach and explore Belize's interior land. Must be willing to climb stairs--a lot--to enter cave, so if you're limited on mobility, this isn't the trip for you.

After our excellent trip to Caracol Ruins, our guide, Diego recommend we change our ATM cave visit to Crystal cave. 1) ATM was pretty flooded out 2) Crystal cave was a "10" difficulty while ATM is an "8" 3) Great jungle hike to get there 4) Intense. We were in! Diego is a guide with Rumors Resort and some others... More

Visiting San Ignacio after a long period of tropical rains, we found out that many of the sites we wanted to see were closed because either the bridges were washed away, or roads were impassable, or water levels were too high to do ATM caves or cave tubing. We stumbled upon “Mayanwalks tours” on Burns Ave. and were quickly talked... More

The tour we booked with Pacz for ATM was cancelled due to all of the rain, so we had to find a quick alternative, and chose Crystal Cave. We were very happy we did! This was adventurous, interesting, and a lot of fun! A 45 minute hike to the cave entrance, followed by climbing down into the cave using a... More

This is a must if you like hiking, getting dirty and dark spaces. We had a blast, we crawled, climbed, hiked, and scrambled for hours. We were also lucky enough to have a guide certified to take people down to "wonderland" were we walked barefoot through the formations. We went with BZM tours (they came very highly recommended and with... More

Crystal Cave (also known as Mountain Cow) is a-must-do! This is one of the most mesmerizing caves you will ever see. I highly recommend doing this cave tour with Carlos Panti, aka “The Cave Man.” Carlos is excellent and will make this cave tour unforgettable for you! Crystal Cave is definitely physically challenging. The tour starts with a 40 minutes... More
