        Disappointed with Caracol tour.
        This Mayan site sounded really interesting when we researched it. The Caracol Mayans had a really good history. However, we were a little disappointed. The drive to the site from San Ignacio was not pleasant. The Belizean government is constructing a new road to the site and caused our driver to drive over unfinished limestone, which was very rough. I'm sure once the road is finished, it will be a nice ride. At the site, the ruins were OK, but only about 15% of the site is visible. The only thing that make the tour good was our guide, Rudy. He was very nice and knowledgeable about the Mayan history. Probably would not recommend the tour to Caracol.

        Wonderful day at the ruins
        Rudy was a phenomenal guide— So knowledgeable, helpful, encouraging, and entertaining. We had a very memorable experience with Rudy at the caracol ruins today. It was worth every penny! Lunch was provided (a delicious traditional belizean chicken, beans, and rice) It was a really great day.

        Magnificent Mayan adventure
        We were picked up by a friendly and professional crew that helped our small group cross the border (4 Travellers, us two and one other pair travelling). From here we were introduced to our Guatemalan driver (Rudi) and guide (Luís). We stopped for some free coffee, a spot of shopping and some interesting facts about the local area, fauna and a 3D map of Tikal where our guides also picked up our tickets to facilitate our speedy entry into the park. We saw lots of local wildlife including toucans, spider monkeys, wild turkeys, parrots, agouti, tarantula, caoti and various other birds. The tour encompassed many of the temples within Tikal and several climbs to beautiful views, these were interspersed with interesting facts and local or Mayan opinion from our guide. Lunch was a little late at 3:00-3:30. Which wasn’t actually a problem for the day but we had booked a dinner in the evening which we were too full to properly enjoy. I may have booked a later dinner had I known we were likely to be eating late in advance. That said, the food at restaurante Gonzalez was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

        A must see!
        Barton Creek was a great experience! Highly recommended! We had a guide drive us (totally needed) over very bumpy roads and through the creek. The land around the cave entrance is manicured, and there are signs indicating certain plants and trees. There is a very comfortable bathroom close by. The entrance to the cave is picturesque! The water was perfectly still. It was 73 degrees in the cave... not cold. The guide paddled us through the cave and expertly explained what we were seeing. There was a human skull and ancient pottery. We also saw blind catfish, not to mention the beautiful stalagmites! Some parts of the cave had a ceiling that appeared to be 40 feet tall. In other parts we had to duck. If you can walk short distances and get in and out of a canoe, you can do this excursion. So glad we did it!

        Amazing Cave tour!
        We arrived late in the day after a somewhat adventurous drive to Barton Creek that included two river crossings-shallow water but still a little unnerving. We didn’t realize that the only cave guides on site were available from Mikes Adventure tours. They kindly gave us a guide - Alex has been doing these tours at Mikes for 11 years. We paid 75USD pp and had a wonderful hourlong tour of the Cave. it is spectacular and the history is tied to Mayan cultures. Some of the rituals and sacrifices are a bit grisly but it’s an amazing piece of history. And the cave itself is a natural wonder.

        Mountain, cave and river tour
        Absolutely fantastic trip to see the caves and waterfall. Rudy, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable in every aspect of this trip and truly a great host. Highly recommend this trip.

        Caracol Maya Ruins and Rio Pool Tour
        Had an amazing time visiting the Caracol Ruins and our guide Neil was so knowledgeable about the history of the Mayan culture and the Spanish Inquisition! Additionally, he brought authentic food for our lunch which was delicious. After seeing the ruins, we spent some time at the Rio pools. Absolutely recommend this tour and we look forward to bringing our kids here in the future!

        Unforgettable jungle experience in Belize
        An unforgettable experience in the jungles of Belize. The arrival to the ruins is magical. You'll find yourself in lush Maya jungles amidst ruins that transport you to ancient times

        Excellent tour to Barton Creek Caves
        Rudy was an excellent tour guide and told us about Maya culture and folklore. We went through beautiful countryside with Rudy explaining what we were seeing as we passed through the villages. The caves are really interesting and beautiful and we finished with a swim in Barton Creek. Best tour we have had on our trip in Central America.

        Accessible adventure that rivals ATM
        I was looking for an adventure out of San Ignacio that I could do with my mom, who has mobility restrictions as a stroke survivor. I was a little nervous about this tour without knowing exactly what to expect, but it ended up being absolutely perfect and my mom's favorite part of our whole trip. Our guide was super accommodating in helping to get my mom into the canoe, and from there she got to sit back and relax because only one person per canoe paddles anyway! I also didn't realize that 95% of this tour is in the cave itself (vs. the river approaching the cave), and the cave is absolutely stunning. I have previously done ATM and still found this to be an impressive and worthwhile adventure. Highly recommend, especially for those with limited mobility or who may be looking for a less strenuous alternative to some of the more popular caves in the area.

        Amazing Tour & Experience
        I would definitely recommend booking this tour! The remote roads in San Ignacio are a little harder to navigate and the conditions aren’t great - I wouldn’t recommend taking a rental car down them. We parked our rental car in the visitor centre and had no issues. Our tour guide was awesome and explained a lot of the culture and history of Belize along the drive and on the tour. The Barton creek cave was an interesting experience, it was nice to learn more about the history of the area and see it in person. The zipling was fun and it was cool to see the mountains. Overall I would most definitely book again for future tours!!

      We took his trip as part of our honeymoon package with Gaia and Matachica Resorts. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the caves and Belizean culture and the whole experience was amazing. We also went down to big rock falls on our own, which was a short walk from Gaia Riverlodge. That was one of our favorite experiences during the whole trip. Highly recommend!!
