St Herman's Cave, Belmopan

4.4
#6 of 23 in Wildlife in Cayo
Venture in the depths of St Herman's Cave with a guided tour and a tube ride out into the open air again. Armed with tube and headlight, descend the trail into darkness and witness limestone stalactites, stalagmites, and pillars. Gaze on subterranean bodies of water, and then mount your tube for a relaxing and steady ride through the cave to finish. Expect to get wet as you move through small waterfalls; you'll also want to have sturdy footwear. Put St Herman's Cave into our Cayo itinerary maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We loved our experience in the cave. It was a nice break from the sun and the water was refreshing. Rosa was a great guide and answered all of my questions about Belize.  more »

  • Park your car at the main entrance, Pay the entrance fee then follow signs to St Herman’s cave. No need for a Tpur guide unless you want to float or explore deeper inside the cave. Bring a good flashlight and bug spray, there are LOTS of mosquitoes near the cave entrance. It’s bad! Parking for inland Blue Hole is further down the highway. There’s a small visitor museum at the parking lot to both attractions but not much to see. The same entry fee includes access to the Blue Hole.
  • This is a great short hike and tube caving experience. Have lunch in the small village and talk with some of the locals afterword's.
  • Bring a good flashlight. This is really worth the walk. Only had our phones to light our way. Is huge.
  • Large cave easy to visit by yourself but beware of mosquitos and other bugs on your way to the entrance.
  • it's interesting going in this cave
