Inland Blue Hole & St Hermans Cave

Inland Blue Hole & St Hermans Cave

St. Herman’s Cave is located about 500 meters (800 yards) from the Hummingbird Highway while the Information Center and parking are located just off the Highway. The tour starts with a leisure walk to St. Herman’s Cave. You have two choices; you can either hike on the Highland Trail or the Lowland Trail. The Highland Trail is much more picturesque but a little more exerting. It will take you through beautiful jungle mountain terrain with gorgeous views of the orchards below. Either trail however, provides an excellent opportunity for Birders and Naturalists to enjoy the flora and fauna of this national park. Some of the exotic birds to frequent this area include White Hawk, Spotted – Wood Quail, Crested Guans, and Keel- Billed Toucans. St. Herman’s Cave sits in a sinkhole 180 feet wide narrowing to a 60 feet-wide entrance. Concrete steps cover stone steps once cut by the Maya. Inside the cave is huge, dark and the underground river runs below you as you make your way to admire the stunning crystal formations within. When you've had your fill of caving you hike back out to the parking lot and another few minutes of driving gets you to the pristine limestone aqua Blue Hole swimming area. The Blue hole is a sinkhole formed by the collapse of an underground river channel. The Blue Hole steps lead to a 25 - feet deep pool, for which the park is named. It’s cool waters surrounded by dense forest are the perfect spot for a relaxing dip.

This is a half-day activity (can be done either before or after lunch) and an optional picnic lunch can be provided. Changing area is available at Blue Hole and this tour is fit for all ages.
