We booked our trip to Cow Mountain/Crystal Cave with Hun Chik and did not know what to expect. Our guide Rudy and driver David were fun and friendly. Rudy is exceptionally knowledgable (my family nicknamed him Google) about not only cave systems and how they form, but knows a great deal about Mayan and other local history. In addition, he cares about the environment and preserving sights for others to see in the future. The three teenagers in our group all said that history in school should be as interesting as Rudy made it! The cave is nothing short of spectacular and a thrilling adventure as well. Rudy stopped frequently so that we could soak it all in and ask questions if we wished. Rudy packed us a delicious burrito lunch and after the hike took us over to Blue Hole for a quick swim and cool down. There were many Mayan artifacts in the cave and the formations were awe inspiring. We had such a fantastic time, two days later we requested Rudy and David for a trip to Barton Creek Cave. Barton Creek Cave felt very spiritual. On this trip we learned about bats, fish, more Mayan culture and Mennonite culture. Again, Rudy encouraged us to be leisurely and enjoy the sights around us. Luis at the main office in San Ignacio was accomodating and easy to work with. You can't go wrong with these guys. Book a tour with them and have the adventure of a lifetime.

The tour company can recommended from one of the hotels we stayed at so we skeptical at first, however we ended up having a fabulous adventure. We were picked up in front our our hotel in an old bronco with a cow skull strapped to the grill and we knew we were in for an adventure. The guide was friendly and we chatted the whole way to the location, bumpy road and all. The hike to the cave takes a while and you will get wet crossing the rivers, guide was great at pointing plants and animals. Once at the cave the real adventure begins. The short swim in, guide was great at helping the gf as she did not swim well but once inside the sometimes tight passages, shallow swims were all part of the adventure. The guide was great at helping out where you needed it and knowledgeable of the ruins, the crystal princess was meant to be the highlight of the tour but for me it was just going through the wet cave as we went. Be prepared to get soaked, and be tired and sore the next day. Highly recommend the tour and this company.

I was with a group traveling for business & we only used this company for driving services. However, our driver, Francisco was the best. He was very polite and accomodating to our needs. He did alot of narrating on the country and our surroundings. When we return to Belize (because I will for vacation!) I will call this company and ask for Francisco specifically!

I want to thank you so much for letting us go in the tour. Abraham was a
great guide and we had a good group. It meant a lot and it was an
unforgettable experience. We had loads of fun, and know I could finally be a
part of after describing the experience so many times before. Thank you and
your brother once again from the bottom of our hearts. You are the best.

We had a great experience with Hun Chi'ik. First, our emails were promptly answered, which was not the case for other companies of this type that we queried. We had a relatively complex itinerary (2 transfers across the country and 3 caving trips), and Hun Chi'ik quoted us the lowest price of three San Ignacio based companies. Our driver was always on time, and one driver had to wait for us 6 hours when our boat was late, but he met us with a smile! Due to circumstances beyond Hun Chi'ik's control, we were only able to do 2 caves, but they were excellent trips. Patrick was very knowledgeable about ATM cave, and Edward was great in Barton Creek. I highly recommend this company.
