Have you ever been to St Herman’s Blue Hole National Park? If your answer is no, then it’s about time you do! A trip to St Herman’s Blue Hole National Park is a wonderful endeavour. How so? There’s the opportunity to learn about the history of the park as well as enjoy a refreshing dip in the crystal blue waters that lies below.
The park is located not too far from Belmopan, the capital city of Belize, about twelve miles southeast on the Hummingbird Highway and has many opportunities for sightseeing, camping and exploring.
St Herman’s Blue Hole National Park consists of two main caves known as St Herman’s Cave and the Crystal Cave. St. Herman’s Cave has a picturesque 180 ft. wide entrance with a steep cliff wall draped in vines.
The cave itself is at the base of another sinkhole with an underground stream that connects it to the inland Blue Hole sinkhole. This particular cave is a great spot to go cave tubing, so if you are looking for an extra adventure, be sure to bring along your inner tube.
Both caves however, consist of two main crystal formations that are worth the trip. Stalactites which are the pointed structures from the ceiling downwards and stalagmites which are the formations from the floor up.
So if you are ever in the vicinity of Belmopan and you are looking for a quick adventure and a refreshing dip on a hot day, be sure to visit the St Herman’s Blue Hole National Park for a cool and wonderful experience!
