What people are saying about San Ignacio
What an adventure! We loved the nature and cultural aspects of the tour. It was fun crossing the rivers and squeezing into crevices in the cave. The Mayan artifacts and sacrificial ruins were surreal. So much more interesting seeing these pieces of history where they existed instead of in a museum. We were exhausted at the end of the day but it was so worth it. Five star rating from me and my two teenage kids. Highly recommend for those that are active and adventurous. The only room for improvement was the van was very noisy and rattling because of some missing screws on the interior coverings.
Such an incredible experience! Our driver Jeremy and our tour guide Gliss were both amazing. They both did a great job at making us feel comfortable and secure. The tour itself is like nothing we have ever done before. It was very raw and felt like a real adventure. It involved swimming, climbing, and squeezing through small crevices. This is not something I would suggest for people who are afraid of heights, the dark, or small/ enclosed spaces. However, if you are adventurous and looking for an unforgettable experience I would highly recommend this tour.
Caracol is an absolute MUST see when you are in Belize. Compared to the other Mayan Ruins, it is much harder to get to and therefore almost completely free of tourists. When we went, there were probably only 30 people in the entire park so we were able to explore freely and got to take photos unencumbered with other tourists in the background. It was beautiful! In addition, our tour guide, Cisco, was amazing! He stayed late to show us around to other sites, including a waterfall that wasn't originally scheduled. It was incredible
This is a MUST DO experience if you are in Belize. I can't even begin to explain how incredible this experience was. The cave while you're in the water is just beautiful and then the Mayan artifacts/skeletons in the dry portion of the cave are unlike anything you'll see anywhere else. We were originally worried about the "swimming" requirement, but your head will never go below water and life vests are provided if you are not a strong swimmer.
The overall tour was a interesting experience from the cave to the ruins and the cool down at the pools. Be prepared to climb some stairs throughout this tour. Our guide was informative and provided all types of information outside the tour
