Go with a Guide, they would be best to explain the caves. Its totally dark you need hard hats and lights to see your way. You will not find this type of caving un the USA, here you have to crawl in some spots and touch formations that in the US would not be allowed. You also see pottery from... More

My friends and I had a wonderful experience at St. Herman's cave with our guide, Orlin. We embarked on a very easy small hike prior to entering the cave about 10 minutes. As this time is right before tourist season, it felt like we had the whole park to ourselves. The cave gets pretty dark, but yet it's an incredibly... More

Enjoyable cave tubing . Water is comfortable, guides knowledgeable and scenery is fascinating. My wife is a little fearful of caves but she was fine with this!

You can only go partway into the cave without a guide. It's worth it to get someone to take you all the way in, so you can see the Mayan ceremonial area and float down the subterranean river.

Along the Hummingbird Highway a short ways past Belmopan, you'll come to St. Herman ' s Cave a nice pleasant walk to the entrance, you'll want to bring a flashlight you can rent them but the batteries are usually not very bright. The walk in the cave is not too far, a pleasant walk for all. They will provide a... More

We went without a guide. You are only able to walk so far in without a guide. There is a rope that tells you how far you can go by yourself. Without lights you can't see your own hand in front of your face. It's so dark. The resort offer cave tubing. I personally could only handle the little hike.... More

We only did the basic ticket ($8 allows you to walk around the park and go 200m into the cave--to go further into the cave, you need a certified tour guide and, unfortunately, we didn't have the time to do that). What we saw was really awesome. We plan to do the St. Herman's Cave tubing excursion next time, as... More

I visited this cave on 2015 and was a great experience. The cave entrance is big enought not to feel claustrophobia. the cave passages are also big enought and there are maya remains from pottery to be seing. A good trip in Belize for anyone.

Crystal clear water, perfect temperature of water and very close to the blue hole. Have to have a guide to float but if you don't want to do a tour you are able to walk a couple hundred yards into the cave
