Fun, interesting and relaxing day in the cave!

We are in our early 60's, and we're not interested in a strenuous, claustrophobic adventure. We opted for the approximate 2.5 hour shorter tour. Alternatively, you can simply walk on your own into the opening of the cave a short way, or take an even longer tour further in. Our guide, Barnaby, was the best! He is very knowledgeable, but...

This was a fun cave since we had little kids and they thought it was pretty cool. There's a nice little hike through the jungle, then a descent on a concrete path into the cave. Nothing too extreme. Good for kids or older people. Not too thrilling for people looking for an epic adventure.

We did cave tubing. The kids weren't really impressed. We'd done the ATM cave the day before and it was incredibly amazingly better.

Great fun. We had family of 5 with 3 grown boys (16, 20, 23). A bit strenuous walk and not a lazy river but need to work a bit once on your tube but excellent experience. Make sure have beach shoes, sneakers that will get wet and not flip flops.

We went through this cave on tubes. It is hard to believe now that I am no longer there - it was fabulous - bats flying everywhere, water falling on your head. Something you just don't do every day!

We hired a guide at the entrance to the cave. He gave us an orientation, helped us with the equipment (tube, helmet and flashlight) and led us to the cave. While the tubing was great fun, we walked about the same distance through the cave as we tubed.

My wife and I did an excursion here to go cave tubing on our honeymoon with Upside down tours. It was a fun trip! Note you are required to have a guide, so check it out with a good tour company. We saw lots of bats. The water is cool and the cave itself was much warmer than I expected.... More

Had friends visiting us with two small children and decided to take them for a drive down the Hummingbird HWY so they could see the Maya mountains and we decided to make a stop at the St. Hermans cave and Blue Hole National Park. You pay once and can go enter/visit both locations which are about 1 mile apart. You... More

You park in the car park and check in with the park rangers. There is a very reasonable park entrance fee. A short walk and you are at the cave entrance. There is a path in the cave and it has some lighting so you can see where you are going. There is also a stream that runs inside the... More

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
