This incredible three mile cave system is set in the heart of a Belizean nature reserve. You enter straight in at the deep end, immersing yourself in water and squeezing between rocks. The cave houses artefacts and skeleton remains of Mayan sacrificial ceremonies, including 'The Crystal Maiden' - a calcified skeleton of a sacrificed teenage girl sparkling away like crystals. The cave has been left exactly how it was found, the ceramics are lying on the altars just as they were. The atmosphere is thick with magic, and the Belizean Tourist Board only permits small groups from a few select guides, making it feel as if you are discovering it for the very first time!
