Cave Exploration in Guatemala

Guatemala has a few really good caves, and exploring them can be a truly unique experience. Many caves are made of limestone and were carved out by rivers — a few still even have water flowing through them. During these tours, you’ll discover Guatemala’s best caves. Equipped with a flashlight and a competent professional guide, you’ll wander through dark caverns and investigate large chambers. Some caves can also be explored along underground rivers on an inner tube or raft.
