I have an Explorer reserved from Alamo at airport or do you suggest switching? All I want to make sure is I have a reliable 4x4 vehicle.. Last time we were there we rented from https://www.belizeautorental.com/ cause it was the cheapest I could find but big mistake got a 06 escape that was road hard but got us from point a to point b..

We stopped there. While not a bad experience, keep your expectations on the lower side. This is a small cenote, not terribly deep, and not much else to see. The cave is also less impressive than a number of others we went to.

If you're looking for a quick dip to refresh, go for it.

We went tubing with http://cavetubing.bz/ and thoroughly enjoyed our time. I've spelunked in Carlsbad, Black hills, Gruta des Garcia MX, Monaco, Mammoth and Horse Cave in KY, and Ruby Falls, but we'd never gone tubing through a cave that didn't have artificial lighting.

If that sounds like good fun, it is! (If it sounds like something that would make you claustrophobic while being in total darkness seldom experienced, it probably is that too)

Just to say the Alamo in Belize is just a franchise which is not really backed by the parent group. Some well known US names have offices but I used one once as There was a "special Deal" on offer with the company i booked the flights with. Worst rental experience ever. The franchise had no cars( despite the friendly email reminder to pick up my car in Belize from the Us office) so the office found a different company I had never heard of who produced a Vehicle. It wasnt actually insured and the registration was out of date and it had "loose" steering a bit scary going down the hummingbird. Crystal is THE rental company to trust in Belize.
