Went there with Pacz tour guide. The canoeing through the cave in pitch dark was a very unique experience, especially when you don't have to do the work. The scenic ride to the cave was an adventure in itself. 7 miles of absolutely stomach churning bumpy ride may not be for everyone, if you are not up to it. The... More

My wife and I canoed through this magnificent cave. What a beautiful experience. The best canoe ride we have ever done. We saw amazing stalagmites, and stalactites in so many shapes large, and small. All had different colors. We were so glad to have taken this tour. It's worth the price, and is very easy to canoe through the cave.... More

We really enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Victor was excellent. He is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. Sergio is the manager and is fabulous. He took the time to answer all our questions when trying to decide on which tour to take and was very helpful not only setting it up for us but giving us suggestions... More

Fun to canoe in the cave. But can be scary in the case if canoe tip over. The road to the cave is very rough

We arrived around 9am. The last 7 miles is on a rough unmade road, but it does take you through a Mennonite community. Unlike the Mennonites we encountered in Lamanai, the women and children smiled and waved to us, though we requested by our guide not to take any photos, which we respected of course. It is an easy canoe.... More

A challenge just getting there along a very bumpy road for about 8 miles and driving through a river. We were the only group there and had the opportunity to do some swimming including into the cave (water a bit cold) before commencing the canoe. The caves were interesting and canoe was not challenging taking us about a mile in.

I love caving and have enjoyed many caves in Belize. Frankly, this one didn't make it to the top of the list till my 6th visit because of its rather sedentary nature - I like adventure. :-) That said, it was a perfect choice for this trip that included some friends with mobility challenges. We enjoyed birding while we waited,... More

Really an amazing and easy canoe ride into spectacular caves and mayan history. Guide are very knowledgable and take their time....count on one and a half hour to complete the tour....not recommended if you have fear of the dark....

This cave tour was an interesting experience from start to finish. My private tour with David was not easy to book since he is not connected to the internet, but it was well worth it. I walked into San Ignacio to his small store front place, though I could have called if I had the number (804-3674/628-2837/662-2421). It was off... More

If you do ATM cave first, this is a let down. The only reason to visit this cave is if you are unable to do the ATM tour. Barton would be good for families with small children. My girlfriend liked Barton, but only because she had never been in a canoe.
