Be prepared for a stenuous trek. Swimming,rock climbing, and transiting tight places, but it’s worth every minute. Wear water shoes or sneakers. Unlike anything I’ve ever done. Would highly recommend if you’re adventurous.

Despite the cost of the tour - you have to go with licensed tour guides - it was the tour most worth it in Belize. It is a lot of walking, swimming but once you have finished you realize this was one of the more...More
