Barton Creek Cave in Belize

Barton Creek Cave is a natural cave in Belize, known as both an archaeological site and as a tourist destination. It is located near San Ignacio in the Cayo District.

Barton Creek Cave is a primarily single-passage resurging stream cave. By 2002 a cave survey had been completed by the Western Belize Regional Cave Project, recording a total of 6400 m of passages; dye traces at sinking streams above the cave indicated that there could be a further 6 km of cave passages beyond the terminal sumps. By 2005 the Xibalba Mapping and Exploration Team had extended the survey to 8 km.
