John is 100% Maya. His tour has insights and stories you couldn't get with anyone else. We started off with the Caracol ruins, then on to Big Rock Cave, only to finish at the most scenic waterfall in Belize for a swim. The day was filled with wonderful stories and laughter - it seemed to just fly by. The sites... More

My friend and I spent the day with John touring Caracol and MPR. John was incredibly knowledgable, teaching us about medicinal plants and pointing out wildlife. I felt comfortable throughout the day, and learned so much. I can't recommend taking any kind of tour with him more - you'll love it.

John Chuc is an amazing tour guide. He is full of knowledge, life, and a genuine passion for nature. His enthusiasm is infectious! The drive out to Caracol was very long, the roads got rough in some spots, but I felt safe the entire time. Make sure to speak up if you need to use the bathroom, there aren't many... More

Juan Chuc (Masawal) was the best guide I have ever had. He was uber informative and on a very one on one level. He is just as much a naturalist as he is a Mayan expert, and is the type of guide you want if you want to avoid crowds and have a little more adventure than all the other... More

Our guide, Mario picked us up at Vanilla Hills Lodge and drove us through beautiful villages heading into the foothills of the Maya Mountains. The roads were pretty rough in places, but Mario's Isuzu was ready for the challenge. Mario retired a few years ago and wanted to get back to nature. He's an avid birder so along with his... More

John Chuc was a fantastic tour guide who knew everything there is to know about Belizean and Mayan culture. John took us to a small school to do our mission work, taught us how to mix and lay concrete for a flight of stairs, guided us through the depths of the Barton creek caves, brought us to the top of...

We did a Caracol tour with John Chuc from Kin Winik tours. It was the most fascinating/educational/fun trip I have ever done. Oxwitza, the real name for Caracol is worth the 2 1/2 hour journey, it is spectacular. We went with our two children 10 and 12 and John kept then mesmerized all day with his knowledge of the Maya...

John Chuc specializes in Caracol, which is important as the road to Caracol is seriously bad. Additionally, you have to meet a military escort to be allowed to enter the site. Add to the fact that it was raining steadily on the day that we went to Caracol… You want someone who not only knows the site, but also the... More
