Our guide led us on a short hike to the cave, and explained to us about Belize, the people, and the environment. She even made it a point to stop and show us small, Black Orchid, which is Belize's national flower. While going into the cave, she told us about what the Mayan's believed about the underworld and what kind of rituals they would do in the caves. She even found a scorpion spider, or whip spider, to show us and why they hang out in caves.

Once in the water, she pulled us on our tubes to the back of the cave and then we began to float back down the river. At one point, she told us to turn off our lights and to just be quite. We sat there in the pitch black, listening to the sounds of the water and the cave, A very surreal experience. At the end of the tour, we were able to observe some bats and how they fly about the cave. I highly recommend this experience.

My first experience cave tubing was so much fun. Our guide was great and very informative about everything...the cave, the country, the wildlife. Even when one of us had a "flat tire" (tube hit a sharp spot on the cave wall) it made the tour even funnier and more memorable. Billie showed us a really good time and I would do it again for sure. Pretty cave, cool water, fun day!

I was not sure what to expect from a cave tour aside from getting muddy. But wow! I was so surprise to see how pristine the cave river water was as it flowed over river rocks and around the underground rock formations. Once in the cave, there were ZERO bugs, zero trash, zero noise (aside from the sound of rushing water), and zero light (if you turn off your headlamp). It was such a neat experience! For those who are not up to substantial physical activity, this leisurely walk to the cave and float on the river might work well for you.

Had a great day cave tubing through St. Herman’s. The local tour guide (Orlin from Upside down Adventures) that was arranged for us was fabulous - informative, helpful and patient. We drove ourselves and were able to get a guide very quickly, without having to go through a tour group. Would definitely recommend this activity.

What fun!! This was one of several amazing experiences during our time in Belize. We had a wonderful tour guide, Pedro with Upside Down Tours. He was a great guide and a lot of fun too.

There is a very short and very easy "hike" (walk) to the cave and then a short walk in the cave to the spot where you get in the river with the tubes. The tubing is basically a lazy river tube down the river inside the cave. It is fun and absolutely beautiful. I loved it when our small group all turned off our headlamps and enjoyed some time riding in the dark!

I highly recommend the cave tubing. To tube you must be with a guide, or at least that is my understanding.

We stopped on our way through one day while traveling to Belmopan. We just did the self guided tour since we were a little pressed for time. But I'm glad we stopped, it was very cheap to enter the park and we were there about 2 hours. It's an easy hike to the cave and the cave is also an easy hike once inside. Turn your headlamp off and just enjoy!

Our family is what I’d call cave connoisseurs! We have visited many caves across the US so this was a treat to see a cave outside the US. It was nice and we were glad to make the stop. We just did the self guided tour because of time constraints. It was good for 18-66 years old. The price includes a trip to the blue hole. $4 US. Go ahead and get the head lamps for a few extra bucks that will go toward the national park funds.

Great time and great guides! We got to tube in total darkness for several minutes. The water was cool but felt great in the heat. The cave is only a 10 minute ride from Sleeping Giant Lodge.

The walk to the cave is so beautiful and not strenuous so it's a nice warmup for the next few hours! The first half of the cave tour is fairly mild, with a great history lesson (if you're with Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort) and cool formations. The last part of the tour, you're up and down, crawling and squeezing your way through, climbing over and around - this is real caving people! If you have any physical ailments that affect mobility, I would not recommend this tour. If you're in good physical shape and like a challenge, this is perfect! Note: If you take a camera, take a small pocket-sized one. Try not to take large packs or any pack for that matter. It will get dirty and may get in the way.
