I had a great time on the River Cave Expedition. The caves were amazing, the guides were first rate, the lunch was pleasant, the Mayan sacrificial areas were unbelievable, I wish this was the tour I signed up for. Yep, I signed up for the river tubing tour. 10 minutes into the tubing tour and we were walking around these... More

The excursions can be pretty strenuous and last all day. The food? Breakfast good, dinner good. Neither great, though they executed well and on time. Internet off during meals.... More

Our stay at Caves Branch was a great adventure. Our room was a jungle suite, not quite as dramatic or impressive as the tree houses, but was beautiful, private, and comfortable. Fully screened, the room felt as if we were sleeping in the lush forest which surrounded our room. The sounds of birds and howler monkeys made for a truly... More

Great staff everyone is so friendly. Marvin was awesome tour guide and Eddie was great server. One morning we woke with a large spider inside our room. Eddie came in and quickly took care of the situation. The tours they offer are all great and the place is family friendly. You do have to remember you are in a jungle... More

Went and stayed for 4 days. Stayed in a jungle hut. Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff there were very friendly and helpful. Good food and lots of it.

This review is a long time coming...Cave's Branch proved to be a perfect choice for our adventure-loving family. Lovely accommodations, great food, but mostly fantastic adventures made for a wonderful vacation. Highlights for us were the cave tubing, waterfall-cave trek, and visiting Tikal. Excellent guides all around. Highly recommended for outdoorsy folk who like to get outside!

We stayed at Table Rock (fabulous), but went to Cave's Branch to drop our sons off for the Black Hole Drop tour. They loved the tour and their guides. And someone at Cave's Branch was kind enough to walk me through some of their extensive gardens and green houses. They are doing a lot of collecting of local plants on... More

We did four tours as we were staying at the resort. Waterfall caving was by far our favorite, but we loved the adventure cave tubing, Mayan ruins, and black hole drop. The guides were all very knowledgable about Mayan history and culture, and we learned something on every tour. All the "adrenaline" tours are very safe and unbelievably fun. Highly... More

We took two adventure tours with Caves Branch (in addition to staying at the Caves Branch Resort). On the first day we did the River Cave Expedition - a perfect blend for our family with some tubing, walking, lots of exploring and history. If that's not for you, there are plenty of other choices with something for everyone. On the... More

Fantastic day out, tubing through awesome caves with a stop for lunch alongside the river and some swimming with the fish. Really great guides, well worth the slightly higher cost to do this tubing - it is an all day tour rather than the hour and a half with others we have done in the past. No rushing and lots... More
