Description
Silently glide back in time aboard a canoe equipped with powerful spotlights as you enter a sacred realm of the ancient Maya. Barton Creek Cave is part of a large riverine system and one of the longest subterranean archaeological sites in Belize. In addition to the natural beauty of its stalagmites, stalactites, and impressive calcite crystal formations the site contains a wide range of cultural remains deposited on the ledges above the river that dates back to 1200 years ago. Enjoy our snacks along with a quick swim, accompanied by waterfalls and the rainforest.

Barton Creek Cave
Carlos was a very knowledgeable about the history and anthropological theories concerning Mayan use of this and other caves in the region. We were not rushed, took a swim and did some birdwatching on the groundS. He was also prompt picking us up. Excellent service!
