The 575-acre St Herman’s Blue Hole National Park contains one of the few caves in Belize that you can visit independently. The visitors center (where flashlights can be rented for BZ$3) is 11 miles along the Hummingbird Hwy from Belmopan. From here a 500yd trail leads to St Herman’s Cave. A path leads 200yd into the cave alongside an underground river. To explore deeper in the extensive cave system, with its huge caverns and classic Maya cere­monial chambers containing calcified skeletons and artifacts, you must have a guide. Ask at the visitors center. Among the other activities available here are cave tubing, birding, spellunking, and of course swimming in the blue hole. Camping spots are available for BZ$5 per person.
