Indiana Jones for a Day

interior of a cave

If you’re looking for a fun day trip, we recommend checking out one of the most popular tour in the San Ignacio area, the Actun Tunichil Muknal caves, located about an hour from the Hidden Valley Inn. The cave is quite large and easy to spend a good deal of time in, and will involve a bit of scrambling through shallow water, so dress for adventure and bring some water and a snack (no cameras allowed, unfortunately). What really makes this cave worth exploring though is the preserved and untouched Mayan artifacts and remains, including one called "The Crystal Maiden," the skeleton of a woman that has calcified into an incredible, sparkling, crystallized appearance. A unique experience that’s more than worth the trip, the Actun Tunichil Muknal caves is just another amazing facet of Belize and Mayan history.
