Know More about this tour

From off the cruise ships, you will meet outside of terminal one or two, and from the hotels, the tour leaves at 8:30am. On the drive over to the Saint Herman's Blue Hole Park, your tour guide will share the history of Belize. Once you arrive, it will be time to hike. On the hike to the cave through the jungle, you can either go on the low land trail which is an easy walk lasting no more than 15 minutes, or take the high land trail, which lasts 30 to 35 minutes and this a much more challenging. Entering the Saint Herman's cave will take your breath away as it is so unique and pristine just to wonder how the Mayan people even used the cave for their own religious practices. You will see bats, stalagmites and stalactites and crystal formations.

After exploring the cave, you will head back out to the parking lots and drive over the inland Blue Hole a half mile drive away. Once there, you will change into your swim suits and dive in! The Blue Hole is a natural sunken collapsed cave system and part of it is about 30 plus feet deep, giving it a blue color. There are a few different type of fish in the water but all are harmless. After enjoying the cool, refreshing water, you will head back to Belize city at around 1:30pm.

    We had an amazing time! Brown sugar was the best tour guide! He made sure we made it safely through the cave. He pointed out points of interest and explained the different flora and fauna along the way. And picked the absolute best one stop! Highly recommend!

    Na een lange autorit kwamen we aan bij Saint Hermans cave. Het is een grot met een onderaardse waterstroom. Erg vochtig en veel te zien is er niet. Wat stalactiten meer niet. Naar de Blue Hole ook weer na een pittig ritje met het busje, een frisse duik in het heldere water van de bue hole. Dat was het. Verder was daar ook nietsbijzonders te zien.

    We had a lovely time hiking with Fred, who was both funny and knowledgeable. The hike inside the cave is must do when you are in Belize, it was great. We highly recommend. A little tip, do all your tours in land before heading out to the islands, tours are much cheaper inland.

    Loved this tour. Dennis was an awesome guide and made us feel at home. Traveled with a 16 month old and it was perfect. Don't forget your bug spray!
