Cave Tubing and ZipLine: This combo tour will depart from Belize City and head west in air-conditioned comfort on paved roads for a 45-minute drive towards Jaguar Paw. Once at the outpost, you will meet your tour guides who will issue inflatable tubes, headlamps, and life vests. You’ll be given a basic orientation and safety briefing before heading off on a 30-minute hike, which includes wading through a few knee-deep water streams. Don’t let the walk worry you, though; as it’s mostly on flat terrain, it is enjoyable and informative. The rainforest canopy shades it, and our tour guides will point out flora and fauna noteworthy to the area.
Cave Tubing and ZipLine
Once at the entrance of the cave system, it’s time for your cave tubing adventure through the ancient Maya underworld. Inside, you’ll see intricate crystalline formations that line the cave with a majestic rise and fall of stalagmites and stalactites that add to the smooth richness and grandiose of Xibalba as it’s known. If there’s time, and you’re open to added adventure, our guides may stop at the mini waterfall and swimming area.
After leaving the falls, you’ll emerge into the sunlight and free float downstream, ushered by the gentle current and little rapids, to the harmony of birds and natural wildlife which routes back to where the tour started.
It’s then on to zipline which gives you a bird’s eye view of Belize’s jungle while soaring through the treetops at high speed. It’s a short walk over to the equipment area where our expert guides will help outfit you in the required equipment. You’ll then make your way over to the first platform, where an important safety briefing will follow, which covers braking technique, balancing, and cable safety.
READY! SET! GO! Push off from the wooden platform and zip along the aerial cable at the canopy level, where a guide will be waiting for you at the next platform. A couple of platforms into your Indiana Jones adventure, you’ll see the “hammock bridge” hanging almost 120 feet above the forest floor.
Take in the tangled heart of Belize’s spellbinding and lush primeval forest, as the full glade of trees falls away to reveal an infinite blue sky. After this, the lines get faster and longer. This thrilling combo tour will add memorable photos to your album and is a must-do when visiting Belize.
Note: It’s best to use comfortable shoes and clothing that will air dry quickly if you don’t want to bring along a change of clothing. If you opt to bring a change of clothes, bathroom facilities and showers are provided onsite, but it’s going to be a quick change as time doesn’t permit the leisure of a long bath. It rinses and goes! Nobody soap, or rags provided. Guides may also give you the option of deciding whether you want to zip first and then cool off by doing the tubing last.
