Like scuba diving the Blue Hole, no trip to Belize would be complete without scampering down the depths of the Crystal Cave complex but make sure you go "all the way" to the end - it gets more challenging the deeper down you go thanks the gods the guides know what they are doing! You need to be reasonably physically fit, definitely not overweight, and have good physical body flexibility to be able to do things like the corkscrew manoeuver to get through some of the passages and definitely not afraid of tight spaces. Otherwise the reward is to go 180 meters into the bowels of the earth in what is otherwise total darkness but the actual Crystal Cave is utterly amazing and the guides are very knowledgeable. Bring a ruggedized waterproof camera with a good wide angle lens and it must have flash to take photos. Wear only clothes that you don't care to get extremely dirty and ripped from sliding on the rocks (but clothes are cheap in Belize) and bring two pairs of socks since they make you leave your shoes behind to enter the actual Crystal Cave chamber. Only downside is the tourist box lunch that the tour company provided is nothing to write home about! Cost of the activity is US$80 booked in the town of San Ignacio about a 4 hour "chicken bus" ride inland from the capital city of Belize City. Make sure you take that selfie or group photo of yourself covered in orange mud when you come back out! LOL
