Barton Creek Cave-duPlooy’s Jungle Lodge

Barton Creek is about 30 minutes away from Zip-lining place. This water cave system is known to be one of the most exceptional and easiest in Belize, since it is accessed by canoes only. It is part of a large riverine system, whereby the natural process of the cave allows its visitors to go in for about one kilometer only.

At Barton Creek, you explore the underworld of the ancient Maya sighting stalactites, stalagmites, pillars, skeletal remains, pottery remains and natural bridges that add to the mystery. As you glide your canoe deeper into cave, a duPlooy’s Expert guide keeps explaining that the main purpose of the cave was for ritual ceremonies, where fragmented pottery and human remains are the major evidences.

Adventurous days on these unique beauties are hard to forget, wonderful to discover and significant to experience. Depart at 7:30  AM for a compilation of unseen hidden attractions and you should be back at home (duPlooy’s) by 4 PM with memories that will never be forgotten!
