Belize: St. Herman's Cave and Blue Hole National Park
Immerse yourself in the jungle environment in this one-of-a kind park. St. Herman’s is a source of wonder with numerous underground streams, sinkholes and an extensive cave system. You will hike for approximately 1⁄2 hr to the entrance of the cave. St. Herman’s Cave Park is home to over 200 species birds and is ideal for birding. Three of the five species of wild cats found in Belize: jaguar, ocelot and jaguarondi - have been sighted in the park. Other residents include the Baird’s Tapir and Nine-banded Armadillo. Please note Jaguar and Ocelot sightings are extremely rare!
Complete your adventure with a swim in the sapphire waters of the inland Blue Hole (not to be confused with the Great Blue Hole out in the ocean) located just 5-minute drive from the caves. The Blue Hole National Park is a 25ft deep natural swimming pool fed by an underground river. Be sure to take a swim suit or change of dry clothes (towels will be provided by the resort).
