We contracted with Maya Adventure Tours to take us on a six hour adventure in a stream that meandered through the jungle and in and our of a cave system - very cool.

If your thinking of going to see the lake don't bother ! It's a complete waste of time and gasoline ! It's a bit off the highway and the road to get there is very bad and rough. Some parts of the road are beginning to cover up with trees on the side . When we got there the park was completely abandoned , no visitor center , nobody was even there ! The signs had faded and we didn't even bother trying to find the lake as the trails looked unkept and there were no signs . I tried to find out from Pact what had happened to the park but was told that they don't manage the park and I couldn't get an exact answer. A colleague of mine indicated that the lake had dried up some years back.

In 2014 we went to 5 Blues lakes for the first time> guess we were lucky. ...and the lakes had water. Just one month ago we went back again. There was less water. But it still was very beautiful. If you don't mind taking a chance, it is well worth the drive. The whole area around the lakes is very diverse. Watch for the sign. The first time we missed it, and drove beyond the turnoff. ( The sign is set back to far into the turnoff road, to be able to see from the road from Santa Marguarta.

The name said it all, 5 diferent shades of blue on the lake. I grew up on the village of St. Margarets my father among others lobbed to make this park a national park once established it was one of the greatest attraction on the Hummingbird highway. I can remember as a child we would walk the 5 miles just to hike the trails, see the amazing caves and of course the wonderful wildlife. After the long walk we would swim at the lake or go canoeing down the creek off the lake where we would see the fish and even the wildlife drinking water at the creek edge at the days end we would katch a ride back to thr village with the park rangers. What was amazing back then was when the village would recieve volunteers from around the world in particular trek force and Princeton university students to volunteer in clearing the trails, building shades and different projects at the park and village. In several occassions we would encounter jaguars, athelopes, gibnuts and different species of wildlife on the trails or road. For those jnterested and those that havent really heard back about the park it will once again start operations. Again I must also say the lake wasnt and isnt the only amazing feature of this park but also the cave system immense caverns to explores as well as lot more to site seeing and bird watching the older folks in the village will be more than willing to tell the stories of this park. I personally plan to go back and help in bringing back this piece of jewel I once knew it for. The broken mayan pottery is a good indication that this park still holds valuable history and exploring expeditions to enjoy. No jungle adventure in Belize is waste of time.. I LOVE MY BELIZE!!!

I was living in Belize for quite a while and the last new I heard was that the entire lake had drained. I did go visit and it was amazing to see a giant pit where once stood a lake I visited when I was a child. It was great to revisit the site and see that the water returned and refilled the lake. Definitely a majestic sight to behold.
