We went to St Hermans for cave tubing which is part of the Blue Hole Parks. It was good but need to be fair shape climbed a lot of stairs to get to the tubing place under ground. Very unique experience. Would bring my teenagers here. The actual blue hole swimming was too crowded so we did not swim but... More

Smaller than it looks in pictures, and icy cold, it is a good place to stop and take a refreshing dip on a hot day. The waters are clear and intensely blue, becoming bluer the further from the bank you swim, but the depths are changeable so if you can't swim like me, i suggest going waist deep for a... More

Very beautiful countryside, thick jungle cover and a very nice road to it as well. This is one of the best places to see natural wonders of the world.

There is not too much to say about a water filled hole. It was pretty and the water was blue. You can go swimming here and it is lovely on a hot day. If you are a birder, then you will probably see Mot-Mots, and a host of warblers. There was even a hummingbird's nest in the car park. They... More

Blue Hole was an amazing place to spend an hour swimming, relaxing and taking in the scenery. The canopy surrounding the Blue Hole is stunning and the water temperature was perfect. A great stop after visiting St. Hermans Cave.

Nice and easy hike in. Water is cold but easy to get used to. No need for snorkel but bring a headlamp or flash light for other side of the cave- which has bats but they were chill and only stirred a little. Lots of kids playing when we went. Watch your step rocks and logs can be slippery.

We hike the hummingbird loop and had a swim in the blue hole. We did not cave tube here. It was a lovely few hours. The hike is moderately difficult a lot of uphill climbing in heat and humidity. Swimming in the cool blue hole was refreshing after the hike.

The Blue Hole is indeed a pool with bluish-colored water. Otherwise, I was not too impressed. First of all, there is a concrete staircase to the edge of the pool with a concrete platform next to the water, which detracts from the natural setting. The pool is immediately next the the highway, so you hear the road noise constantly, also... More

For those who yearn for the cenotes of the Yucatan, come here. I could imagine it might get crowded but it was not when we were there. The water was cool and very refreshing. There were small fish in the water which was generally not too deep at all, apart from one area near the cave entrance from which the... More

The small sinkhole is good for a dip. A lot of locals use it too. It's deep enough for a swim and safe but just for bathing. Safe.
