i didn't notice much of an incline, but it was a pretty slippery and challenging hike/ swim throughout the cave. getting in and out of the cave involved a bit of steepness

Hi, the best ATM guide is Patrick from Belize Caves & Limpkin Tours. You can find him on Facebook @belizelimpkintours His service is worth the price you pay.
