If you want to do the most amazing inland adventure Belize has to offer; Sleeping Giant Ceremonial Cave will provide the ultimate adventure!

The cave, located behind the Sleeping Giant Lodge, is reserved for exclusive use of Viva Belize guests. As such very few people ever enter the cave. Our goals are to provide an intimate tour experience and to preserve the integrity of the cave. The cave features spectacular geological formations, rim stone dams, stalactites, stalagmites, crystal curtains and columns. The cave was also used by the ancient Mayas for religious ceremonies. Left behind as evidence of these mysterious ancient ceremonies are hundreds of artifacts making Sleeping Giant Cave a natural museum. There are Maya skeletal remains embedded in crystal, Maya tools, fire pits and amazing pottery. To get there from Jaguar Reef we transfer you one hour along the scenic Hummingbird Highway. On arrival to Sleeping Giant you meet your guide and then have a 30 minute hike through the jungle where your caving adventure will begin.

The cave tour ends around 12:30 when you will return to Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge for lunch. After lunch you will have time to enjoy the facilities at Sleeping Giant including the pool, the Sibun River, the gardens and grounds. Return transfer to Jaguar Reef leaves around 4 pm.
