Barton Creek Cave Tour

Canoe down Barton Creek to see an enormous and mystical cave that played an important role in local Maya culture. Once you paddle inside, it’s easy to see why the Maya chose this awe-inspiring cave as a site for ceremonies. Guides on this half-day tour are well-versed in Maya history as well as natural history.
