Crystal Cave Tour
Discover the crystal cave at St. Herman’s Blue Hole National Park on a full-day tour. A breath taking experience! At the crystal cave, those brave enough to take the tour in the undeveloped cave rooms will crawl through cracks and crevices, make it through and behold spectacular cave formations that your claustrophobic friends will never see.
Crystal cave is visited by a number of tourists every year – attracting people seeking a rare glimpse of fascinating underground world. Caves played a very important role in the ancient Maya culture as they considered caves to be a supernatural realm where their deities and ancestors resided. Caves were the portal between the tangible human world and the invisible world of the gods, a place called xibalba. It was here that the Mayas performed their most sacred rituals and ceremonies.
