This is one of my favorite places to visit in Belize. It's not the biggest cave, nor the most off the beaten trail cave, or the hardest to get to, it's just simply cool. It reminds of the land of the lost. The river comes...More

We were on a guided tour of several sites that are located in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve by San Ignacio. I would recommend a tour and their vehicle as the road to it is challenging. You pass wonderful nature and cultural sites all...More

We stopped here after Caracal tour since we had our own car. The cave is huge and restrictions are non-existent so the kids could climb responsibly and get a feel for the scope. It is a nice way to stretch your legs from the bumpy...More

Interesting cave with some historical significance. When we stopped the sound of cicadas was amazing loud and nearly as exciting as the cave itself. Pools to take a dip in.

We stopped on the way to Caracol. Pretty amazing cave but short – easy to explore either going up high or low. Note that it is free but it is a long bumpy drive.

Do not make a special trip to see this. My guess is that 100% of visitors swing by this on their way to or from Caracol. In that case, it's worth it. Pretty neat cave, but nothing super special.

The river runs through the cave, and there are openings to the outside on both ends. It's more like a very big open tunnel. Because of the openings, you get a lot of sunlight inside the cave to see details you might miss in many...More
