Barton Creek is for those who want to see a cave but you don’t want to hike, swim or climb around, but you still want to see a cave. We drive from San Ignacio around 45 min to an hour passing through a traditional Mennonite village. The drive is an adventure by itself, it is very scenic and passing through the village we can see and learn about how Mennonites survive without any modern technology. Shortly after the village we drive through the Barton Creek River getting to the cave entrance. Then walking three minutes the guide will get the canoes ready, the canoes are three sitters and the guide sets a car battery with spot lights and paddle into the cave. As we gently paddle through the cave the guide will interpret about the Mayan history and the important ritual and ceremonies that took place in ancient times. As we continue paddling we will encounter challenges like ducking or bending to the sides, any one can do this adventure. Total time we spend in the cave is around two hours. Paddling in to a certain point then back out again. We can call this a half day tour or we can also combine it with and amazing waterfall in the mountain pine ridge or a zip line tour.
