St. Herman’s is located twelve miles southeast of Belmopan, on the right side of the picturesque and winding Hummingbird Highway.

The main attractions in this park are the St. Herman’s Cave and the Blue Hole, which are linked by an underground stream. Visitors can walk 200 yards into the cave entrance unguided, or can hire a guide to traverse the cave completely, seeing beautiful speleothems and Mayan artifacts. After a guided tour through St. Herman’s Cave, you can float peacefully back to the entrance of the cave on an inner tube.

The Blue Hole is a cool and refreshing place for an afternoon swim. It was formed by the collapse of an underground limestone cave. In this case, the river running through the original cavern still flows through the cave system, and forms a sapphire-colored pool at the bottom of the cenote. The depression measures about 100 feet deep and 300 feet in diameter, with the actual Blue Hole at the depression’s base having a depth of about 25 feet.

This natural turquoise pool is a “must see” tourist destination. The park has two entrance areas with parking and several visitor-friendly amenities such as 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 among others.
