St. Herman's Cave makes a very exciting trip only 15 mins drive from Belmopan! Touring the cave was awesome and taking a cool dip in the nearby inland Blue Hole made a great trip!

Beautiful cave, well taken care of. The view from the small hike is awesome- you can see all the nearby orange orchards and highway along with the hills over the area. Family place, educational, relaxing once there are not so many mosquitos when you visit....More

Take the lowlands trail to get to the cave. Pretty dark and eerie thinking what is in the cave. We took the highlands trail back and saw some good picturesque moments.

We just did the cave exploration and did our tubing at crystal cave because of the water depth. The cave was really fun to walk through and then we'd all stand together and turn off the lights. So dark you'd never find your way out....More
