Based on our experience, Cayo Adventure Tours (CAT) provides the best adventure tours in Belize. On day one, Diego picked us up and asked if we were ready for adventure. Our day one consisted of a tour to Chechem Ha cave which was really fun. We enjoyed the 40 minute hike to the cave, the guided exploration of the cave by the owner, William and the delicious lunch that William’s wife provided. The afternoon consisted of exploring the Mayan ruins at Xunantunich. Diego’s knowledge of Mayan history was so comprehensive and really enjoyed day one. However we can’t say enough good things about Diego. He is so passionate about Belize and all it has to offer. His knowledge of birds, wildlife, archaeology and Belizean culture just added to a great experience.

On day two, Diego showed up at our lodge to take us to Caracol and Big Rock Falls. We were so lucky that Diego was assigned to us for a second day. We stopped at Rio Frio Cave on the way to Caracol for a sidebar trip and we just loved it. Caracol and Big Rock Falls were excellent adventures.

On our last Belizean adventure, Louis was our guide as he took us to Jaguar Paw for cave tubing. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed the brisk 45 minute hike through the jungle and the slow relaxing river float down through the caves.

Cayo Adventure Tours provided us with delicious packed lunches on our second and third excursions. The chocolate banana bread was really good. The CAT tour guides go the extra mile to make your adventures fun and exciting. Next time we go to Belize, you can be sure Cayo Adventure Tours will be our choice in adventure companies.

Myself and 3 others recently took the ATM cave tour with Cayo Adventures. It was a truly unbelievable experience, largely due to our guide Martin. He is very in touch with the Mayan history and culture. He gave an interesting tour with a wealth of information (no one gives the tour like he does, I asked to make sure). The tour has some challenging aspects so be ready for a workout. Although my 13 year old son had no problem with it. There is a small amount of swimming but mostly wading through the water. The things you will see and experience are definitely well worth it

Enjoyed a tour to Caracol with Louis as guide. A great location to visit and was glad to have a knowledgeable guide with us.

Used CAT to go to Tical and ATM. The Tical tour was great (you actually change vehicles at the border and get a new guide at the ruins). Very informative guides, and friendly. The ATM tour had a lot of mixups. Our tour guide got sick at the last minute (and this is the busy season), one of their vans got a flat tire, so we got picked up 30 minutes late, ended up getting combined with BZT for a large group. All circumstances out of their control, and the guide was great. My only concern is that we had to contact CAT in the morning to find out what was going on and where they were and that is when we found out all that was going wrong. I then had to contact CAT on my own to ask for a partial refund (we paid for a private tour and got a group tour), which they easily agreed to, but I haven't seen yet. So they don't get 5 stars for the simple customer service that pushes people up to the top (even when things go wrong).

A wonderful experience with Martin, he made the adventure very special. We had a small group of 5, and it felt like we were the only people in the cave. We will be returning to the Cayo district and will book all our adventures with Cayo Adventure Tours.
