Amazing experience! We had so much fun!
Nov 2021
Gisele was a phenomenal tour guide! We loved every place we visited! Karim was a great driver and also made the best Belizean lunch we had! The Rio Frio Cave is magnificent! Caracol has the tallest ruin in Belize and you can climb to the top (not for the faint of heart)! And the pools we such a fun way to relax but also explore some scenery. Overall we had an amazing time! Note: The road in the Mountain Pine Forest is EXTREMELY rough and bumpy. We were able to handle it as everyone in our group was young and malleable. However, if you are older, or have medical conditions/back problems, this might not be the tour for you unless you want to be sore for days after.

Wow! What a tour, what a sight, what a day!

Gisele was such an amazing Tour Guide. She related to the group we were with and made the long bumpy ride very enjoyable and fun. We saw a lot of wildlife on the drive, and Caracol was one of the highlights of our entire trip. This is not one to miss if you are visiting Belize! The other tour guides were so helpful and knowledgeable.
When touring in Belize you always have Stew Chicken for Lunch!

Great tour

We had a excellent tour with Anselmo.
They teach us a lot about all Maya history and guided us through the ruins.
A very pleasant lunch with rum punch.

Highly recommend this tour to Caracol at a great price
Our guide, Anselmo, Was marvelously knowledgeable and made our tour to caracol extremely enjoyable. Long bumpy ride, but Caracol is fascinating, and amazing lunch! The stop at Rio Frio cave was also worthwhile. Swimming in Rio on Pools was the perfect refreshing experience on the way back.

Fantastic day out with a fantastic guide!
May 2021
Fantastic experience with Anselmo - whose knowledge of and enthusiasm for all things Mayan really accentuated the experience. This is a fantastic tour, and the history, architecture, and jungle surroundings (complete with howler monkey screeches) all add up to an unforgettable day. Caracol is truly awe-inspiring, but do beware of the drive there - bone-shaking in the extreme! ;)

Also, the Rio Frio cave and the Rio On pools are the perfect way to cool off after Caracol. A fun and unique glimpse of more of Belize, and we were lucky enough to see scarlet macaws on our way back!

An amazing day out with a great guide!
May 2021
Our guide's name was Anselmo and he was fantastic. He was friendly and knowledgeable about all three sites as well as pointing out plants and animals along the way. If you do this trip try and make sure you are in his group! We were picked up from our lodge (The Parrot Nest Lodge) at 6:30am and taken to their office in town. We met the other 6 people going on the tour with us before being split into two groups. There were 5 in ours and 3 in the other. Each group had their own van. The ride to Caracol is 2 and half hours most of which is along a very bumpy unpaved road. The one stop is about 20 min in at a gas station for a bathroom break and to pick up drinks/snacks if you want them. The van is air-conditioned. After the tour at Caracol they provided a delicious lunch of rice and beans and chicken along with rum punch and cookies. Next we went to the cave followed by a very refreshing swim in the pools. There is a place to change at the pools and there are doors on the changing rooms now. You should bring sunscreen and a hat and know that it was very hot walking around Caracol. We got back to town at around 5pm. We really enjoyed Caracol and the day is worth the bumpy ride. We were fortunate that we had a great group of people which helped make it a truly memorable day. As an added bonus Anselmo is also a first responder so could have helped us if we had gotten hurt.

Great time
May 2021
Another excellent tour from MayaWalk Tours. The ruins were beautiful and our guide knew anything there is to know about the history of the Maya. He was incredibly friendly and we had a great time discussing Belizean history and other things on the long drive. If anyone is worried about the amount of walking on this tour, it isn't a far distance, but there is some climbing of steep steps and the weather was very hot when we went. Not only did we see the ruins but the wildlife in this protected area was beautiful. Since it was just the end of the dryer season there, our guide gave us the option to skip the Rio Frio Cave and instead go to another swimming area that had a waterfall and cliff jumping. It was a great experience and you could tell the tour company cares about the experience of their guests.

Anselmo is a hero and so is MayaWalk Tours
WOW! I try to travel as much as i can, which means I'm always participating in new tours, BUT this tour easily outdoes them all! I have experience with Mayan ruins in Mexico, but they were nothing compared to our experience with Anselmo and Maya Walk Tours. Caracol is a lengthy trip, but Anselmo made it fly by with all the knowledge he was able to impart upon us jumping from topics of the Classical and Post-Classical Maya, to mythology, to contemporary Belize itself. Anselmo also switched off perfectly between English and Spanish (our party had speakers of both), and made it work effortlessly. Once at the site, we had two full hours of further site specific history. it may seem like a lot, but we were engaged the whole time (and mind you, we were a little sleep deprived). Ultimately, there's no end to how charming, fascinating, and experienced Anselmo is. I've never had such a compelling tour guide. Then, of course, Caracol itself is massive! It's gorgeous, incredible, and no matter what your interests are, it's hard not to be impressed. To top it all off, folks at the Maya Walk tours home cooked and prepared a delectable chicken stew for us to have after viewing the ruins! If that's not hospitality, i don't know what is! On our way out of the site, we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a jaguar! Lastly, as if all that weren't enough, Rio on pools, was such a special way to end the tour. It's long, but because every bit is enjoyable, there's no space or time or even desire to complain about a single thing. Thank you!

Great day learning Mayan history and seeing wildlife
It was a full day. From 7am to 4pm. We went to the cave when no one else was there and it’s stunning. The ruins were amazing, plus we saw Macaws, toucans, a burrowing tarantula, howler monkeys, and so many beautiful birds. It was really hot but we go a great meal and dipped in the natural pools. The experience was all thanks to Oscar. He was was so knowledgeable about Mayan culture and history, the area, plants/trees, and all the wildlife we saw. He is an expert spotter for birds and helped other guides with a known area for Scarlett Macaws along the way. Also he was a very good driver through the long rough road up. It’s worth the bumps.
