Booked the Barton Creek cave tour through this business and so glad I did! John was on time, funny and informative about every aspect of Mayan and Belize culture. He is an expert in jungle first aid so for sure we felt safe. he took us canoeing in the cave and even had us lay down in the canoe to... More

John suggested that I might enjoy Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, when I popped in to find out what I could do. John was right! A group of us had a fantastic day visiting waterfalls, caves and learning about the conservation efforts, native communities, wildlife and vegetation. We swam in waterfall pools and jumped off rocks which I eyed up... More

My husband and I are avid birders and because of all the rave reviews here, we chose John Chuc to lead us on a birding tour in the San Ignacio area in early April 2014. My first contact with him was in early February. At the last minute he informed us that one of his employees would be leading us... More

We met John accidently just walking around in San Ignacio and after a few minutes talk we knew he is the right person for a tour around the area. I love herbs and plants and all the natural remedies and his knowledge about all of those is amazing. Next day during our trip he explained all the plants we saw... More

One of my best days in Belize! We had our tour of the ATM and Barton creek arranged with a different company but they didn’t do the Caracol tour when we were there as they claimed that the road was too bad as it had been raining heavily just a few days before. The other company directed us toward John... More

So if you want to go to Caracol, bypass all the other tour companies and go with John Chuc of Kin Winik. He will give you an extra full hour up at the ruins, and shows you the full site, unlike the others. He takes you on a different route through them, so at every point, you're on your own... More

We ran into John after coming out of Pop's for breakfast. Wasn't expecting much but this turned into a very pleasing experience. John is very knowledgeable of his environment and is proud of his heritage . If you want a great time let him set up your itinerary and you won't be disappointed.

I highly recommended John Chuc and his knowledgeable staff as your first choice for an unforgettable trip into the jungle of Belize for numerous reasons. John offers a very personalized experience into the back country where his ancestors once lived and thrived. He will share his detailed knowledge of anthropology, flora and fauna with joy and competence. For the adventurous... More

My wife and I are adventure driven people. We hate crowds so if the big groups are going in one direction, we go exploring in the other. Just like John. We got hooked up with John by a chance encounter with another adventurer at our hotel. We decided to skip our one chance at ATM cave to go on a... More

We went to Caracol with John and it turned out to be the best organized trip in Belize. John is very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. He took us to places where other tour operators don't go. We spent a perfect day and we highly recommend Kin Winik. Caracol is amazing, so beautiful and it is not overcrowded.
