The Blue Creek Cave swim/tour is an exceptional experience, in Toledo, Belize. It is best enjoyed with a qualified guide. I was very pleased with the Toledo Cave & Adventure Tour and my personal guide. Safety was of utmost concern, given that this tour involved swimming in a dark cave and walking up through several waterfalls.
I have also taken the ATM cave tour. This tour is totally different, as you swim almost the entire time - in the dark, and then walk up through waterfall areas for short periods of time. When I was there the creek water flow was reasonable. But in high flows it would be more challenging. But the experience is unique and beautiful. My tour guide was excellent at helping me to position my feed to safely walk through the waterfalls.
Although I am a strong swimmer, the guide gave me a life jacket and a helmet and head light. It would be unwise to go into the cave without these items. So i was pleased that the Toledo Cave & Adventures tour company brings all of the equipment along and carries it to the cave for you. My guide also invited me to eat with his family for lunch, in a Mayan village. This was a really special meal and I greatly appreciate that he invited me into his home.
I strongly suggest this tour to anyone who wants to take this type of trip with a safety oriented tour group.
