Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had so much fun with Orlan, our guide for cave tubing in St. Herman’s cave. Orlan was knowledgeable about the caves history. He was a great guide with great energy. He made us feel safe. We really enjoyed the trip. I recommend Orlan. Excellent guide!

A beautiful large cave, with a short walk to the entrance. Bring your flash light or head torch.

If you have more time, the the full guided tour is also worth doing.

The best excursion by far. A unique experience. Best part was floating in the dark and silence. The guide gave us Mayan history of the caves.

Saint Herman's Blue Hole National Park was a terrific experience. Our cave tubing portion of the visit was so much fun, and relatively easy for inexperienced recreationalists like us. Our tour guide Vida was absolutely terrific; he took great care of us in a dark, rocky, slippery setting. It was exhilarating!

The Blue Hole portion of the visit was also lovely. We were able to swim in the pool, almost entirely alone. A restorative treat. This is a recommended destination for anyone traveling the Hummingbird Highway.

We are staying in San Ignacio, but took a half-day to Belmopan and the inland blue hole. We went into Saint Herman’s cave, which took about 2 1/2 hours, and it was well worth the visit and the money. It was a physical trek through caves, tight spaces and dark but filled with history, including Mayan fire pits, pieces of pots, combined with the great history shared by our guide, Walter. It was a terrific experience and we will go back and do the crystal cave next week.

We then went into the blue hole to cool off, which was lovely.

We ended with lunch at The Palapas, which was good.

It was a wonderful day trip from San Ignacio. A driver cost $180bz r/t and guiddd entry into the cave was $50 us pp.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Cave tour. The National Park is well maintained and the trail from the parking lots to the cave and to the Blue Hole were both short and beautiful. Although you can view a portion of the cave without a guide, we chose Upside Down Tours so we could have the full experience. Our guide pointed out plants and animal life on the trail and told us all about the history of the Mayan People and how they used the cave. He made sure we saw all the amazing crystals and stalagmites and tites along the way. The opening to the cave is spectacular both exiting and entering and the water was refreshing. We were able to view the headwaters and also float past the entrance to a larger chamber where the fruit bats hang. The cave formations are numerous and beautiful. The entire tour was 2 hours. Highly recommend our guide - Upside Down Tours. Easy to work with! Great Outfit!!

A lot of fun! Easy 15-minute jungle walk to the cave entrance. Bug spray is a MUST! BRING YOUR BUG SPRAY WITH YOU. Your guide will put it in his drybag so that you can spray again after you emerge for the buggy walk back! We did several excursions while in Belize and this was by far the buggiest one! Cave was cool and dark and turning out headlamps on the float back to the entrance was awesome!

Rose was a knowledgable, friendly guide who took us into the cave and led us and our tubes through the water (relatively warm) and told us stories about the land, how the cave was formed and used. A peaceful way to explore a cave!

Great time and great guides! We got to tube in total darkness for several minutes. The water was cool but felt great in the heat. The cave is only a 10 minute ride from Sleeping Giant Lodge.

Jungle walk to the blue hole is easy and tranquil. The cave tubing is a must do. It is easy and not too long.
