Overview

Xunantunich, Cave Tubing & Belize Zoo

Your fun-filled journey will start from your Hopkins accommodation where our guides will meet you before heading off to Xunantunich.

Xunantunich is a national treasure that fills its visitors with a sense of time travel. It sits close to Belize’s western border and is a must-visit. Local souvenirs, hammocks, and blankets are available from the many vendors waiting alongside the river at the entrance to the hand-cranked ferry that has carried many thousands to and from the calm beauty of this Maya Temple.

Xunantunich

many opportunities for amazing selfies and group photos. Panoramic views of the Cayo District and nearby Guatemala from atop ‘El Castillo’ are stupendous! Come with an open heart to experience simplicity and visiting another world for a few hours before heading off to your Jaguar Paw cave tubing experience.

Cave Tubing

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 hike worry you though; as it’s mostly on flat terrain, it is enjoyable and informative. It’s shaded by the rain forest canopy and our tour guides will point out flora and fauna noteworthy to the area. When you reach 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 serene 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

Belize Zoo

It’s then on to the Belize Zoo before heading back home.  Belize Zoo is a small zoo with a big heart. Every species is placed in habitats that are similar to what their natural surroundings would be if they were still in the wild. Birds fly high in natural, enclosed canopies. Crocodiles lounge about in pools made just for them.

The magnificent Jabiru Stork stakes its claim to lots of space and may even fluff its huge wingspan for a show. The Jaguar, Mountain Lion, and other wild cats blend into space provided for them and may come out for amazing photo opportunities.

Here you can get a look at the national animal, the Tapir (Mountain Cow), and smell why the peccary has its own place in the Belize creole language. You will feel as if you are truly in the jungles of Belize. Belize Zoo is a fun individual and family trip.
