Barton Creek Private Tour Photo

This is a canoe tour that takes you through the dark passageway of the Barton Creek Cave. The Maya believed that this cave served as a home for their water god, Chaac. It also served as an entranceway to the underworld, and is the final resting place for some Maya. Experts believe that these skeletons may have belonged to sacrifice victim.

This tour begins at 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM. At the outset of your tour, you’ll take a 45-minute drive through the Mennonite countryside. Once you arrive at the cave, you’ll float down the river, and at one point you’ll turn off your flashlight and listen to the water – the constant drip of water on the limestone has shaped the cave’s interior. You’ll spend about an hour in the cave, but the pace of the tour depends on your group’s preferences. Keep an eye out for artifacts along the banks of the river, in the recesses of the cave.

This tour doesn’t require any special experience, and is a fun excursion for kids and adults alike. You’ll get to see some of the jungle while you learn about the history of this enchanting landscape. At the end of the tour, you’ll return to the canoe rental and have lunch with your group.
