What an adventure! We loved the nature and cultural aspects of the tour. It was fun crossing the rivers and squeezing into crevices in the cave. The Mayan artifacts and sacrificial ruins were surreal. So much more interesting seeing these pieces of history where they existed instead of in a museum. We were exhausted at the end of the day but it was so worth it. Five star rating from me and my two teenage kids. Highly recommend for those that are active and adventurous. The only room for improvement was the van was very noisy and rattling because of some missing screws on the interior coverings.
Such an incredible experience! Our driver Jeremy and our tour guide Gliss were both amazing. They both did a great job at making us feel comfortable and secure. The tour itself is like nothing we have ever done before. It was very raw and felt like a real adventure. It involved swimming, climbing, and squeezing through small crevices. This is not something I would suggest for people who are afraid of heights, the dark, or small/ enclosed spaces. However, if you are adventurous and looking for an unforgettable experience I would highly recommend this tour.
We had an amazing tour w Jeremy and Edward. Edward was so knowledgeable about every part of the tour. He gave knowledge about the jungle surroundings on the way to the cave such as medicinal plants and the insects. We ate termites for the first time! Once in the cave he was very attentive to safety and the where we where. His knowledge was the best! We will definitely get ahold of him again for a camping trip! Jeremy thank you for the ride and the awesome lunch and rum punch!
This is a MUST DO experience if you are in Belize. I can't even begin to explain how incredible this experience was. The cave while you're in the water is just beautiful and then the Mayan artifacts/skeletons in the dry portion of the cave are unlike anything you'll see anywhere else. We were originally worried about the "swimming" requirement, but your head will never go below water and life vests are provided if you are not a strong swimmer.
Everyone from our driver to the guides, was fantastic. They were kind, patient, interactive, and very safe. My husband (54), son (14 y.o), and myself (40) had a great time. It was physically taxing, so please take care to bring good shoes, a towel, and dry clothes to change into after your adventure.
