Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

A trek out there but, if dry, roads are fine esp with 4 wheel drive. Drove out there ourselves with a guide, Ronny, provided by crystal paradise. The ruins themselves were impressive and we enjoyed learning about the history and I especially appreciated things he picked out during the hike we would have missed, like some of the buried sites. Also, it makes a great day tour when combined with rio frio cave and a waterfall (we did big rock which was a good one - with places to jump from the rocks).

We arranged a trip to Caracol through our jungle lodge and it was incredible! I wasn't sure if we should visit Caracol or Tikal when we were planning our trip but it sounded like Caracol would be less crowded and that was spot on. We encountered a few other small groups over the course of our visit, but it almost felt like we had the site to ourselves! I'd definitely recommend going with a guide, our guide was able to explain a lot of details to us that we would not have understood or been able to discover without a guide. It's amazing to think how long this took to build, and the ingenuity the Mayan had to plan for aqueducts and water collection!
We also did a quick trip to the Rio Frio Cave and Rio on Pools in combination with Caracol since they are all close together.

My wife, son and I are holidaying from Australia, we hired a 4wd and drove from San Ignacio to Caracol. We read the reports of the poor conditions of the road. However, the roads are rapidly being improved, and it took us approximately 1 hour and 55 minutes to drive to Carocal .The first 50 minutes were on beautifully paved roads, and the remaining journey was on slower bumpy roads, but not difficult or scarey at all. We had nice dry conditions. They are constructing approximately 5 bridges, so I feel the roads are getting better every day. We visited the outstanding, popular Tikal Site in Guatemala the previous day ,however in comparison, upon arrival at Carocal (11am) there were only 10 cars in the carpark. Sensational place , we almost had it to our selves.

Per me dovrebbe essere una delle sette meraviglie. Per arrivare la strada è sterrata consiglio di noleggiare un Suv. il sito è poco battuto dai turisti quindi si entra completamente in sintonia con le rovine e la natura. Si respira pace e tanta energia positiva, la natura lisi mescola alle rovine imponenti. Se sei in Belize non puoi perdere una tale meraviglia

We visited Caracol today, August 9th, on a self-driving excursion. We used a Chevrolet Equinox, a 2WD SUV, for the trip.

Maybe thanks to the sunny and dry weather, the journey was surprisingly easy with no issues. The drive took approximately 2 hours. The initial 20 miles were on paved roads, followed by the next 20 miles on unpaved roads and ongoing construction. However, these roads were wide and in excellent condition. The final 10 miles were partially paved and narrower in comparison.

Contrary to what some agencies may suggest, the drive isn't an extreme adventure; it's similar to many other streets in Belize. Don't be swayed by emotional manipulation from agencies trying to sell expensive packages or 4x4 rentals. The journey is perfectly manageable on your own.

Upon reaching the site, you'll find it expansive and incredibly captivating. The area boasts impressive constructions along with hidden chambers and tombs, adding to its intrigue. I highly recommend visiting Caracol for a memorable experience.

The Mayan ruins are fantastic and the site is well worth the 2 hour drive (more on that in a minute). We went on a Sunday and although we were the second car there (at about 9:30) about 15 were there in total by the end, yet it is such a large site that it still felt empty. The entrance fee was only $7.50 (US) as it was low season, which was half price (i.e. it is now $15 US normally). We spent about 2 hours walking around and climbing each of the buildings. There are great views and lots to see. There is a small visitor centre which details a little about the site but it's you want to know more you either need a guide or to do some research first (which is what we did)

DRIVING: we had hired a 4x4 specifically to get to Caracol. We read a lot and we're quite worried before we set off, especially as there has been a lot of heavy rain in San Ignacio during the previous 2 days. On the day the weather was dry, although it has rained at least a little overnight.

The drive was absolutely fine and not at all difficult. Plus, it is only going to get easier as there is a massive effort to build a new road going on. From the Western highway to about a mile before Rio on Pools the road is new tarmac and in perfect condition. It then becomes a dirt road until a mile or two after the Macal river. For most of this section it is a wide (2 lane) well leveled surface that is being prepared for the new tarmac and so very easy to drive. There are a few spots with more rutting but I was comfortable doing 20-35mph most of this section. The worst part is as you approach and leave the river and was the only bit I was glad I had a 4x4. The final 10 miles or so are an old tarmac surface but this is mostly all eroded and encroached by the jungle. It is still easy to drive but slowly to watch for pot holes.

There are sections overall where if it was in heavy rain I can see it would be more difficult, but the road was dry deposit the previous days rain so it drains reasonably well. I really wouldn't worry about this drive except in sustained heavy rain. It is not as bad as you may read, mainly because the improvement works have had a big impact already and even comments from a year ago will be out of date about the state of the road. We even saw 1 local arrive in a normal car. The attached pictures give some idea of the conditions.

Also, there was no check point in operation when we drove. There is a spot at the start of Pine Ridge reserve for one but it wasn't in use. I don't know if this was just because it was Sunday.

The road to Caracol is dirt road for the last 30+ kilometers. If it has been raining it’ll be a nightmare to get through. Even when dry, it is still not particularly enjoyable. They are working on building out the road in full but given the number of workers, or lack there of, just assume that this is a 2027 completion project at the earliest. Definitely hire a guide to take you as they will also then be able to take you to Rio on Pools and Big Rock Falls on the way back. Total time needed at the ruins is about 90 minutes to two hours. The military that monitors the site (no it’s not dangerous just remote) wants everyone out by 2pm so ensure you get there by mid morning to late morning the absolute latest.

My wife and I went on tour in a van (company chosen by our resort, Sweet Songs) for a full day trip. The guide picked up three other people at hotels in San Ignacio. The road is under construction, and as of the end of January probably 20 miles were quite rough. I certainly would not consider it for an ordinary car. However, we had a great experience because our guide (of Mayan heritage) had a lot of information and explantions. Even if you get to the site on your own, this is almost impossible to understand without a professional. Aside from a tiny gift shop, restrooms,and picnic area near the entry, there is a single large mounted map. Unlike some other historic sites, there are almost no signs, labels, translations of inscriptions, or explanations. If you wander around by yourself, you might say "that's a pyramid, that's a big structure." For example, an explation of how the observatory worked and how different sections lined up with the equinoxes and solstice came from our guide. This was also true for the ball game court, and an explation of the likely role of ecological collapse (over cutting of forests) played in the decline of this city centuries before the Spaniards invated. The site has a small, sad, dated musuem area. The labels are so faded (on the objects and photos that have them) they are illegible. The interpretation of the site --which is only a small percentage of a much larger "buried" city--made this really interesting and educational.
The tour included food (and Sweet Songs resort had packed more food). We stopped for a swim at Rio Ono on the way back, which has changing rooms and barely usable toilets. Make sure you bring food and beverages. There is no vending at this remote park. When the road is completed, its isolation will surely change, but right now in January there were probably not more than a dozen visitors exploring the largest period at mid-day.

Go with a guide, picnic lunch, plenty of water and do the climb to the top.
Don’t miss the Mayan carvings you can actually touch in the covered open-air building on site.
