Absolutely loved this but you need to be reasonably fit. DO IT, DO IT!!!!! Saw bats, cave spiders and crickets, pottery shards and skeletal remains. My husband and I (both early 50's) and 20 year old daughter took this tour on 12/23/15 and had no...More

Don't miss this one-of-a-lifetime opportunity if you are physically able. The site is amazing and beautiful with Mayan and Natural History. The water architecture and cave formation are just out of this world. Imagine the British Museum is partially underwater in darkness, this is how...More

My husband is 66, I am 53, we're in reasonable shape, but we were both pushed to our limits by this adventure. You do lots of wading, swimming through the cave river, and climbing over huge rocks, crawling through crevices. I found it really scary,...More

By far the best tour in Belize. Way more strenous than I expected. But easily do able. I felt like Indiana Jones!

Loved every minute of it. I felt like Indiana Jones. From the hike from the car park to the inner chambers the whole trip felt like a real adventure. Incredible history and amazing geology. This is not to be missed if you are in Belize....More

Fun experience! The price is pretty steep, but the only way allowed to visit is with a guided tour. The best way to book is probably from the local tour companies rather than online, which is more expensive. The tour involved lots of swimming and...More
