St. Herman Cave is located in the Blue Hole National Park (aka Mountain Cow Cave). The Government of Belize acquired a part of the site back in the 1960's. Then in the 1970's, they purchased the remaining portion of the land. In was declared the Blue Hole National Park on November 23, 1986.
In 1988 funds were raised to construct a wall to prevent erosion around the concrete staircase and a trail way, and a visitor's center was opened on May 8, 1996.
To avoid confusion with the Blue Hole (at sea), the parks name was changed in 2005 to Herman's Cave Blue Hole National Park.
Getting There: Herman's Cave is located 12 miles southeast of Belmopan on the ride side of the Hummingbird Highway. The park has (2) entrances with parking. At the Herman Cave entrance, you will find a picnic area, visitor center, gift shop and trail heads. The second entrance provides easy access to the Blue Hole, a picnic area, restrooms, changing rooms, as well as other trails to the national park.
The St. Herman Cave has unique geological features and can be found within 575 acres of forest. The main attraction to the park are the Herman Cave and the Blue Hole, which are connected by an underground stream.
The original cavern still flows through the cave system, and forms a sapphire colored pool at the bottom of the cenote. The depression measures 100 feet deep and 300 feet in diameter. The actual Blue Hole (inland), has a depth of 25 feet.
