Chechem Ha Cave - prices? reservations?

Hello all,

I've been reading about the Chechem Ha Cave, just outside of San Ignacio. So far I've discovered that the tours are run by the man who found the cave, and that's about all I can find out.

Does anyone know if you need to reserve for a tour or just show up?

Any idea what the rough cost might be?

The site I listed above is for Gonzalo, Williams brother. I remember when they first found the cave. Those days the only way to get there was from Negroman on foot or mule for the hike along the Macal river and up the steep hill. The artifacts that were in the cave when they found it were incredible and many now in the Museum of Belize in Belize City and vault in Belmopan, but still many items remain that are remarkable and a lovely place to visit, have lunch, explore. You can spend the night. They have basic cabanas there for overnight. I spent a night in the cave once as well, way back when.

When we take student groups to Chechem Ha, we camp there in the main site. It's a fun night for all. Don't be afraid to camp there overnight if you want to experience a night in the jungle. Gonzo at River Rat is great.
