Blue Hole National Park is known for its wonderful caves (Crystal and Saint Herman) and its less impressive sink hole, but is also one of Belize's prime birdwatching hotspot, featuring more than 350 species. The staff at the national park, managed by Audubon Society Belize, is very friendly and knowledgeable.

I like this place because it is a swimming hole in the middle of the jungle. The folks who run the admission are very nice and the location of the water requires a walk down into the water hole. The walk is by concrete steps, not a good option for someone who is not able to climb in and back... More

This is a must see! Great hub for some free diving and exploring. Be sure to bring bug spray and a mask for swimming around. The water is very "refreshing"

As backpackers we were looking for something to do in the area on a budget - that didnt involve a tour and something we could do by ourself. Admission was $8 and we spent over 4 hours in the Park. Apart from the blue hole which is a small limestone sink hole (very refreshing waters) you also gained access to... More

If you're on the hummingbird highway, the blue hole NP is worth a stop. Nice place for a picnic and quick dip. Walk down a cement path to a small bathing area. The pool is clear and cool and very deep (which causes the blue color, I think). There are shallow areas for small kids and an area with faster... More

We went here 3 times in four days. Nice cool water coming directly from an under water cave. Flows into a deep pool then a short creek and back into another cave. Bring your mask so you can dive down and see the cave feeding the Blue Hole. We did not explore any other part of this National Park. Get... More

Blue Hole National Park was a roadside stop for us as we transitioned from San Ignacio to Hopkins. Beautiful park, refreshing spring water, and a cave! Fun for whole family.

Do not confuse this with The Blue Hole Marine Sanctuary. It is off the Hummingbird HWY. I was able to get a few bird species here not easily obtained in other areas of Belize. Very nice site.

I jumped off the bus at the blue hole to see it and to enjoy a quick dip in the water. It was a beautiful place to visit and to relax. There is so much greenery and beauty. The water is cool and refreshing. If you take the public buses and get ask to get off at the blue hole... More
