The Giant Caye Caulker cave system in Belize is thought to be one of the largest cave systems in the world. The entrance is located only 50 yards or so from shore on the lagoon side of the island. The cave is thought to be one of the most extensive in the world, extending under the Split and Caye Caulker for large distances. The entire cave has not yet been explored, but it’s pretty extensive.
As you can see from this map compiled by the Belize Cave Diving Society, entire Caye Caulker neighborhoods sit atop the cave.

They then move to the entrance of the cave system which is a tiny unnoticeable black hole located very close to shore.

Caye Chapel’s Winter Wonderland
Caye Chapel’s cave system is known as “Winter Wonderland.” It got its name from the abundant amounts of white sand that have settled inside, giving it an amazing winter feel.
