About Location
Barton Creek Cave is a wet cave located in the Moutain Pine Ridge area of Belize. The cave is about 2 miles long and is home to a variety of Maya artifacts, including ceramics, figurines, and human skeletons.

The cave is also home to a number of stalactites and stalagmites, which have been forming for thousands of years. Visitors can explore the cave by canoeing or by walking. 

If you want adventure, the drive here alone should get you ready for this cave expedition.

One of the most interesting discoveries was a necklace composed of perforated animal finger bones and a carved bone. The carving depicts a seated figure with his hands across his waist and legs facing forward.

The cave is a popular destination for adventure seekers and is a great place to learn about the history and culture of the Maya.
