We used CAT twice as the excursion operator booked through our hotel (ATM and cave tubing) and I just can't recommend them. Our ATM tour guide was very experienced and got our small group (only four) of us to the cave early which was nice as the cave got very crowded as the morning progressed. However, throughout much of the... More

My friend and I wanted some adventure in our lives so we booked two days of tours through Cayo. The cave tubing was so relaxing - our guide had just the right combination of tour-giving and just letting us drift in a enjoyable, leisurely silence. The zip lining afterward was a series of rather small ziplines, but it was nice... More

We used Cayo Adventure Tours, a locally-owned and operated tour service in San Ignacio, for three excursions: Che Chem Ha Cave/ Xunantunich, Caracol and Tikal, and we could not have been more pleased. Our guides were all generally in the 20-30-year-old range, well-experienced, well-educated in their subjects and very personable. Michael and Maria Simmons run a first-class operation, and I...

My husband and I were recently in San Ignacio and looking to find a way other than bus to Hopkins. We asked around many places that quoted us from $40-$80 more than Cayo Adventures quoted us. So we paid the fee. The pick up arrived on time and to our surprise it was Daniel the sales person. He explained all... More

We were referred to Cay Adventures by our hotel out in San Pedro to take us on a trip to Xunantunich (pronounced Shunantunich) and then to cave tubing. It was a great recommendation. George picked us up at hour hotel in Belize City promptly at 8:00 in a nice clean mini van. Though the drive to Xunantunich was a couple... More

The drivers are not always the tour guides. We had Ranan as our private guide for the ATM cave tour, which surpassed our expectations. Ranan/"the Godfather" is a veteran tour guide and pretty much made us feel like we were in a live documentary. Also, we took a trip to Tikal and had Emil as our driver and chaperone. We... More

When booking xunantunich and cave tubing at caves branch, we were told we would be doing both xunantunich and cahal pech and then cave tubing in the afternoon. We were disappointed that only xunantunich was done without cahal pech. Guide informed us that the boss had said that it would be a long day if cahal pech was also done.... More

Victor safely took us to Caracol (worst road ever) and showed us around this amazing site. He was very adept at avoiding the crowd. In addition to the ancient site, he was knowledgeable about flora and fauna, esp. birds. Emil guided us through the amazing adventure that is ATM! We safely swam into the cave and scrambled over the rocks... More

We took two tours with CAT - ATM and Tikal. Our guide for ATM (Ranan?) is one of the longest operating in the caves (20+ years) and was absolutely outstanding! He had numerous stories to tell, and a great sense of humor. We got off to a bit of a slow start due to one of the tourists languishing over... More
