This cave offers a very special experience of a stunning cave. This a MUST SEE EXPERIENCE for several reasons and should be at the top of your next Belize adventure list. What makes this cave the next run away attraction is its accessibility. A great...More

Completely understand why this gets the reviews it does. We had the best time with Ken whose enthusiasm for the caves and their history really shone through. Having seen a review here from somebody who took their five year old, we decided that our six...More

We spent a day underground exploring Actun Chapat with Ken (the owner) and Leo, who was a great guide! I loved the fact it was just our family exploring the cave. This is NOT the tour for you if you don't like climbing, rock scrambling...More

The day trip to visit this cave operated by Belizean Sun Tours is hands down the most impressive caving experience offered in the country of Belize. I've poked around at least a dozen caves in the area and the number of artifacts combined from those...More

This is a fun experience. I wanted to explore a big cave and chose Actun Chapat rather than ATM because so fewer people visited it. We got a private tour by Ken with only a days notice. Ken is from the same state of 'Colorado...More
