Blue Creek Cave
This village of some 275 Q’eqchi’ and Mopan Maya was first settled in 1925 and is also called Ho’keb Ha,—“the place where the water comes out,” describing this spot where the Río Blanco emerges from the side of a mountain, becoming Blue Creek and home to an extensive cave system.
You’ll need a guide who’s familiar with these caves; ask at Punta Gorda or at one of the nearby Maya villages. Many of these folks know the nearby caves well. Go prepared with flashlights. You can swim up to 600 yards into the cave; it’s pretty stunning. Ack’s bus leaves PG at noon on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
