Barton Creek Cave

Barton Creek Cave

You arrive at Barton Creek Cave after an enjoyable drive across rivers, jungle trails, orange orchards, through the Mennonite Community of Barton Creek – be sure to have a smile and a wave for the horse drawn buggies.

Hidden within this small Community, are the remnants of an ancient Maya civilization silently waiting to be explored in the cool, dark watery underground caverns of Barton Creek Cave, which was a center for ritualistic activities including human sacrifices, fertility rites and bloodletting. Stretching nearly two miles underground, this ancient wonder can be explored only by canoe. Drift along and marvel at the glittering stalactites and stalagmites, some 50 feet (15 m) in length. Littered with the eerie remains of human bones, centuries old clay pots, some in perfect form, and tiny remnants of cultural Maya artifacts.

Take a plunge in the cold underground river if you dare for a truly incredible experience. Whether you want to only go to Barton Creek Cave or combine this activity with other tours, we can customize an experience to meet your needs. Contact us to arrange for your Barton Creek Cave tour today.
