Great adventure experience!

Not for those with weak knees or ankles. But if you are relatively fit and up for an adventure, it's an awesome experience! Great guided tour with Luis!

Our guide warned us it's a harder cave and that it's not for everybody but it was easier than we thought. There are definitely some parts that are harder than others, but the guides Miguel and José help out as much as they can. A great experience for caving beginners as well as experienced cavers!

This cave is not for everyone, it is challenging and you do need to be in good shape to do it. For starters there's a 45 minute hike uphill in the jungle, then the tour into the cave it's about 3 hours long and the hike back to the car so be prepared to sweat the whole time. Wonderland (a... More

Tour through the cave was excellent. Getting to the cave from the NCL ship was by school bus with no leg room, built for school kids. On the way back to the ship, it was so hot and it looked like people were going to pass out. Guides from tour told us to put down the windows. DO NOT TAKE... More

This is a beautiful float down stream thru a gorgeous cave covered in stalagmites .The water is not cold, and the trip is in the dark with a helmet on with a light on it. You won't be disappointed in this trip. Educational and exciting. Kids will love it.

I really wanted to go on the kayaking through the cave adventure and spend a night out in the jungle, but as luck would have it I was there when it rained for days on end and the "wet" caves were not safe. The Crystal Cave was a fun alternative.

The cave was awesome. The water is a bit cool because it's spring fed, but you adapt quickly. Enjoyed the tubing and tour. Swimming through the last part of the cave was very enjoyable. Seen people jumping off a small cliff into the water, would have loved to do that but our guide never offered it and we were out... More

Great adventure for any day of the year as the underground water temperature is constant. The most fun exploring a cave for all ages.

I overcame a lot of fears in this cave! Incredible adventure that I accomplished with my husband! We had the best guide, Feliz, was a big reason, I was able to overcome some of my fears! This was a definite adventurous climb, not for those who haven't been working out in my opinion. Highlight of our trip!

This is one of my favorite attractions in Belize. Unlike most of the cave attractions in the US, this cave has no electricity and manufactured attractions. After hiking down into the cave carrying a float tube and wearing protective equipment, you get to experience a relaxing hour or so floating through the cave. Groups are limited to 8 people plus...
