Barton Creek winding down it's subterranean path

The Barton Creek Tour is good for people of all ages. You'll get go caving in a canoe and see Mennonites, Mayan Ruins, and some stunning Belize Jungle.

The trip to Barton Creek begins at 9am. Barton Creek is located at the foot of the Maya Mountains, so there is some excellent scenery on the way and you'll also be going through a Mennonite village (a group of people that live very simply). At the site, everyone gets life vests, helmets and heads to the canoes. Each canoe has a guide and a light. Usually the guides will ask if there is someone in each boat that can help paddle. The water is still, but it just makes it easier.

In the cave

There are two options for Barton Creek Cave depending on the claustrophobicness of the people on the trip. The basic Barton Creek trip is 1050ft into the cave. It's fairly wide. If everyone is ok with tight spaces, the trip will continue another 1000ft. down the watery corridors of Barton Creek Cave. Scattered through the cave is Maya pottery and you'll also see an ancient Maya bridge and a skull. While there are some neat Maya artifacts in this cave, the formations and the cave itself are the attractions here. If you want to see lots of Mayan remains, there are many other better options. If you want to canoe through an amazing cave/river, then look no further.
