We also went with Xtreme
and our group were alone in the first cave section we went through but I can't say if the all the other company does or doesn't do these caves too but we looked at Reggies when we booked our tour and they did not go as far as xtreme did.
All I know is that we had a fabulous day with xtreme and it was really fasinating. We learned a lot and saw so much. Inside the caves, we pulled our tubes onto the bank of the river and walked up the side into an attached cave and Richard explained how the Mayan's believed that caves where the entrance to the underworld and often remains are found within caves such as these. He is a wealth of information on the Mayan culture and history and the uses of the local plants. Ask him about the natural ******, maybe it explains the large mayan population that once existed!? Try the local beer, Belekin, it was pretty good, the green bottle!
