Long bumpy car ride
Roger
, Mar 2020
Sal was a good tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the ruins and the history of Caracol. I chose 3 stars because the ride was terrible. It's a very long ride on a bumpy dirt road. Had we known about this part, we would've skipped this excursion. We were all a little car sick once we finally stopped. A delicious lunch was provided. The waterfall was much needed at the end of the day.

We had a really fabulous time on this tour. Our guide, Selwin, is of Mayan decent and is very knowledgeable and provided all kinds of great information. It takes over two hours to get to Caracol and the road is very bumpy but once out there, it's quiet and feels like a very authentic, rather than touristy, archaeological site. We were a little rushed at the end and did feel like we didn't have enough time at the largest buildings. The site closes at 2:00 and it's hard to fit everything in with the time allotted. The tour included a visit to a cave and swimming at a waterfall. Be sure to bring your swimming suit and and a towel. Pack bug spray and sunscreen as well.

Excellent tour. The guide was part of the excavation project in the '90's and had lots of excellent insight into the archaeology and history of the area. On the return trip, he was flexible on our visit to a local cave and the Rio on Pools swimming site. The driver provided the opportunity for a stop en-route, which was appreciated. The vehicle was clean and in good shape considering its arduous daily journey. The driver took his time with potholes, making for a very pleasant ride given the rough circumstances.

The pyramids were awesome but the tour guide didn't want to climb the pyramids so he sat at the bottom of them. Our vehicle broke disown and had to be scorted by the military to caracol, lucky for us the guide called and another vehicle was there within 2 hours
