Description
Barton Creek Cave

Barton Creek Cave is the entrance to the Maya Underworld and can only be accessed by canoe. A peaceful and ancient realm awaits as you glide into the cave to see the amazing crystal formations and learn about the history of this sacred place. This tour can also give you a combination with a choice of butterfly farm or waterfall to make it a full-day tour, which also includes a delicious lunch!

Highlights:
  • An ideal choice for families
  • A popular choice for kids
  • See native wildlife in their natural environment
  • Private Tour ensures personal service
  • A perfect introduction for first-time visitors

We begin our journey through farmland where you can see the Mennonite community of Upper Barton Creek and experience their traditional lifestyle. We reach Barton Creek Cave, much of which is still to be explored and stretches for miles, of which 4.5 miles is navigable by open canoe. At the entrance of the cave, we board our canoes, switch on our headlights and start to slowly paddle into the cave passage. While floating deeper into the passage we learn about the geology, archaeology and Maya history of these caves. 

Our lights will bring crystal formations that are millions of years old to live. After exploring the caves, we turn around our canoes and float back to where we park them and complete our half-day tour with a refreshing swim.
