    Absolutely incredible experience that exceeded all expectations. There is a great mix of history and learning combined with fun and adventure. The guide Manuel was great fun, really knowledgeable and humorous. There are some really cool obstacles to overcome while working your way through the cave that could put someone off if they overthought it too much, but in my opinion it's achievable for anyone willing to put their mind to it - I never felt unsafe. Would definitely recommend as it's one hell of an experience!

    The hotel pickup in San Ignacio was right on time and we met Willie at the border who guided us through the Belize exit and Guatemala immigration process. It was early morning and only took ~15 minutes for 4 people. (There were people at the border selling Guatemalan currency; I bought some but ended up only using it for gratuities along the way). Make sure to bring your Belize insurance info and proof of vaccination for the return trip. You'll get a few passport stamps on this day.

    We were soon on our way to the jungles of Guatemala.

    On the way, we stopped at a shop that had a 3-D map of Tikal; it was interesting to see the scale and shear number of buildings. This is the place to buy souvenirs and snacks--they have a good selection and take credit cards. There is another shop at the park entrance but has a smaller selection of items.

    The tour of Tikal was amazing (if a bit exhausting--you'll do some climbing). Take water (we each had two ~20 oz bottles), sun-screen, bug spray (and hiking boots and poncho if you have them). The rain came just after 2 PM just as Willie predicted. (Willie was an expert of all things Mayan and very knowledgeable about jungle wildlife and pretty much anything we asked about.) By the time the rain started, we were on our way back to the van and a late lunch.

    Me and my family did 3 excursions. We started with cave tubing with Dave who was amazing. He was fun, energetic, gave us all the history of the caves and made our experience memorable. We also did the pontoon boat with Nadir. We spent the day on the Macal River. We went to 2 waterfalls and the fountain of youth. We had an amazing bbq on the boat which was absolutely delicious. It was very peaceful and beautiful. We laughed and had an amazing time as well. Our last excursions was horseback riding with Robert in the beautiful hills. His horses were very well trained and Robert made you feel very comfortable. I had had a bad experience with a horse in Puerto Rico but he made me fave my fear and made me extremely comfortable to get back on a horse. At the end of our ride we were taken to eat at a local restaurant and than finished with a small hike to the Mayan Ruins. I highly recommend Jungle Splash Eco Tours to anyone visiting Belize. All of our guides made us feel like we were family. I definitely gained 3 new friends. Thank you Dave, Nadir and Robert for everything!!! My experience will never be forgotten.

    Elio was AMAZING! He was so thorough that we had very few questions. The questions we did have, he answered immediately and often with humor. The tour gave a lovely overview of this beautiful and culturally rich country. We highly recommend this tour and Elio specifically. Every person we’ve met thus far has been kind, helpful and interesting. It has all been unBelizable! 😁

    We loved our time at all 3 destinations. Our driver Lincoln and our guide Giselle (not sure the spelling) were accommodating, professional and prompt. The cave was much more enjoyable and wonderful than we had even anticipated. We thought it was simply a way to break up the drive but we were so impressed with the knowledge of our tour guide and all we were able to see.

    The Caracol ruins were absolutely stunning. We spent enough time there to see everything we wanted to see and our tour guide Giselle was knowledgeable, relatable, and explained everything in a way we understood. The Belizean lunch was so delicious as was the rum punch!

    Rio On Pools was another great stop. It had rained for several days in a row before we arrived so the pools were overflowing and the current in a few spots was strong but we swam and had a great time getting refreshed.

    Our van broke down just a few miles from the office on our return but the owner brought another van in just a few minutes and we were on our way.

    I would HIGHLY recommend this tour and MayaWalk Tours. Fantastic experience for all 6 of us.

    The experience and the tour guides far exceeded my expectations! We had John Paul for the full day and I cannot recommended him highly enough. If you can request him and book with him, DO IT! He’s incredibly knowledgeable and great to spend the day with. I learned so much and had a great experience.

    Only a certain number of guides can take you through the ATM cave itself to Jamir took us through that part. Again, highly recommend him! He was knowledgeable, fun, and kept us all safe.

    The ATM was a great adventure where we also learned a lot. The ruins were beautiful and again a great learning experience.

    I was so glad to have these specific guides and these experiences were the highlights of our trip. We took another company the next day and wished we had these guides again. I highly recommend this company and this trip!

    This was by far one of the best excursions i have ever had when traveling abroad. Xunantunich was not only beautiful but there was so much my family and I learned about the Mayan Culture. It was awesome to see close up and in person all of he splendor and beauty this magical place held.
    The cave tubing was also a blast and came in handy after the hike within the Mayan Ruins.
    Our tour guide Omar was absolutely o ne of the best to have. He is well versed in the history and culture that is Belize as well as highly knowledgeable on the plant and wild life.
    The lunch was spectacular and with all of the flare Belize is known for. I would definitely do it again.

    GREAT experience!!!! Fabulous guide, Manuel, and good lunch and rum punch after!This was the most taxing and extraordinary experience! Not for the feint of heart, nor those who aren’t in good physical condition. You will swim through neck deep water, with and without current, squeeze through tight places and climb huge (Like 2 story high) boulder before you climb (in socks) the huge archeological site and high ladder to the crystal maiden. Truly an adrenaline rush experience. GREAT guide, small 8 person groups must work together to pass back where to stand, hold, etc, as you spend 3 hours in the underground cavern system. Best advise: Wear light weight sturdy shoes you can sim in and wear socks as part of the excursion you are climbing without shoes on. I wore tightly fitting gloves as then I could grip rocks without worrying about cuts and scrapes. You will be soaking wet the whole time, but you will be climbing around, so shorts, t shirt, light Wright long0sleeve top ,athletic skort are all good ideas.

    Be aware if you are claustrophobic or scared of the dark or do not swim, this is not the tour for you! You will hike about 45minutes to the cave (quick pace) and back and the water is cold, but you will be expending a lot of energy, so you won’t notice the cold. NO Bags, hats, water bottles, food, camera etc go in with you, so hydrate and eat a snack at the last stop before you enter the river. No bathrooms once you start hiking, so you should take advantage of the jungle stop prior to the fist river crossing…

    Take a towel and full dry set of clothes for after, shoes as well. There’s a big restroom building where you can change after and you’ll want dry clothes and shoes before you have lunch and get in the van for the very bumpy ride to the main road.

    We had an absolute blast doing this tour (and two others!) with Maya Walk during our time in Belize. Our tour guide was Giselle and we had so much fun relaxing down the river with her. She was super knowledgeable about the wildlife and helped us spot three toucans as we floated along! We had a great lunch at a restaurant, and we would highly highly highly recommend Maya Walk for all of your San Ignacio tours.

    The only way to experience the Mayan site! The trail is so beautiful. You see the countryside, travel along the Mopan river, and get to take the horses across the river on the hand-cranked ferry. The horses were very well trained, and our guide Elio was so helpful, informative, offered to take photos, and had the best jokes! He was so accommodating. We absolutely loved this experience and would 100% do it again. Cannot recommend this enough!

    Very professional, 100% trustworthy. Simply tell them what you're looking for, they'll put together all arrangements. Always on-time, all minor details are worked out. Don't worry about the prices, you can give them a blank check and they won't try to take advantage of you.

    Beautiful tour. Elio is super friendly, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. I love that he incorporated some fun facts about the local plant life too. This is actually the the second tour we’ve done with him and would come back again! Caution: it’s hot and there’s lots of fun climbing, so come prepared!

    10 out of 10 for our day on the Pontoon trip with Jeovani! We have memories that will last a life time. We saw magnificent waterfalls, my husband and daughter swung from a tree like Tarzan splashing into the jungle water. Jeovani made us a delicious BBQ lunch and he is super funny. We kind of feel like he became our friend not just a tour guide. Jeovani is super friendly, warm, and engaging. We would definitely take this tour again it was so relaxing and the views of the jungle from the pontoon are extraordinarily beautiful. I highly recommend Jungle Pontoon Waterfall day trip!
