This is the most amazing cave. It is a bit of a hike to the cave opening then a swim across a small river. It has been well preserved and the artifacts are very interesting. Should go through with a guide that can explain what everything is. There are a couple of places in the cave that are a little... More

This tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit an ancient Mayan spiritual site unlike any other. However, it's important to know in advance what you will be faced with. Deep water, pitch black darkness, slippery jagged rocks and extremely confined spaces are just the beginning. At certain points you will literally be up to your chin in... More

This cave hike is not for the faint of heart. It is a once in a lifetime experience through the most spectacular caves- and has been left largely untouched to preserve their natural beauty. The caves are incredible- the cleanest clearest fresh water, and gorgeous mineral deposits throughout. This isn't a cave that has handrails and ropes or paths. You... More

Probably one of the most amazing public caves in the world. Artifacts and human remains, geologists paradise. No cameras, no shoes, no bathing suits! You will swim, climb, traverse, and trek your way into a day filled with adventure.

Lots of wading and swimming and so many Mayan artifacts you have to try not to trip over them. We loved it but it is exhausting. Bring water shoes and make sure your feet are not tender!

Get ready to experience the Mayan underworld known as "Xibalba." Wear dri-fit clothing, gym shoes and socks that you don't mind getting wet and dirty and get ready to star in your own Tomb Raider. :) You get to hike, swim and traverse ancient cave systems used by the Mayan civilizations for rituals and sacrifices. You can't take pictures in... More

At the end of the cave, it was claustrophobic. Also, it's physically challenging. Worth seeing but I'll never do it again.

This tour was fantastic and was easily the best event we had in Belize. This is a strenuous activity so not recommended for some elderly, very overweight or very young children. You drive through a huge farm of coconut, mahaghony and teak trees, then take a 45 min walk crossing the cool river three times to get to the cave.... More

Such a unique experience! We booked a guided tour to the cave from an experienced guide. It takes awhile to drive to the park where the tour begins. There are nice bathrooms there to change into clothes for the trip. Be sure to wear clothing you can get wet and easily move in. I wore a bathing suit with an... More

This is an experience you could never have in the US. There is an element of danger that makes it all the more spectacular. I don't mean life-threatening danger, but slippery rocks, deep pools, narrow crawl spaces, dark spaces, and boulders to climb gave us a few bumps and bruises. No dangers from any type of creatures made it nice.... More
