On our private tour we hiked the short distance to the cave entrance with our inner tubes, helmets with headlamps, and life jackets and then down about 70 steps into the cave. We got in our tubes, formed a chain and were pulled upstream past...More

Smaller cave in Belize, more intimate, less people. Water levels were low at the beginning of April 2019; however, was still deep enough to float through without needing to walk.

Did the St. Herman's Cave and tubing through "Upside Down Tours." Our guide was Marvin who did a great job explaining the history of the cave. Would definitely recommend him!

We went on a guided cave tubing adventure. It was a lot of fun and interesting to see the caves and learn about their formation. Water was cold and you will NEED water shoes.

Worth a trip but not a 'must do' imo. We were lucky to have cave to ourselves with a small group and with light out it was magical; but guide warns that when busy the experience is less compelling.

There are some stairs and the cave gets dark quickly so have your flashlight or phone - there are guide ropes to keep you out of harms way.

Wear good water shoes and insect repellant. Can be rocky in the cave when walking. Rose is the best guide!

Dark. :) The self-guided trail goes in a couple hundred meters. There is a little water in that section (not on trail) and a few formations, but it is definitely and “intro” cave. There is a guided tour that goes in a... More
