Cave Tubing and Zip Line Combo
Your adventure starts as you are picked up by your expert tour guide at the Belize Cruise Port for a scenic drive into Belize City. Take a few minutes to marvel at the colonial architecture and city highlights, then pass small farms and charming Creole villages as you make your way to Nohoch Cheen Archaeological Reserve.
Upon arrival, your guide will lead you to the zip line facility, where you will be expertly fitted with a harness, safety helmet, and gloves. After a brief instruction, you will be guided to the zip line platform for a major adrenaline rush as you zoom through the trees on 10 zip lines. Once you have experienced the rainforest from the air, you will be outfitted with a helmet, adjustable headlamp, life jacket, and inner tube for the cave tubing portion of the tour. After a quick safety briefing on tubing skills, you will be escorted through the lush rainforest and sacred caves, where the Mayans believed deities and ancestors inhabited. Throughout the walk, your guide will point out plants and animals that are native to the area.
Once at the Caves Branch River, you will explore the rainforest by water as your hour-long tubing adventure takes you through a mixture of calm and fast-moving waters. If conditions permit, you will float past waterfalls into the cave systems. Enter cathedral-sized chambers and listen in amazement to the echoes of your voice while you observe the magnificent stalactites, stalagmites, and unusual limestone structures reflected by your headlamp.
Following your tubing adventure, you will head to a local restaurant where you can purchase a delicious homemade lunch of typical Belizean food, such as stewed chicken, rice, and beans and banana bread (if time permits). Lunch at the restaurant is optional and is not included in the price of the tour. Furthermore on the Belize excursion, you will wander the grounds under the swaying coconut palms and sacred Guanacaste trees before your return ride back to port. Book now for a fun-filled day in the rainforest of Belize that you will fondly remember for years to come.
Please Note: Occasionally the river's water may rise to the point where the caves become flooded and it is not possible to do the tubing portion of the tour. On these occasions, the tour will still be provided, with the tubing portion being replaced by a visit to the Altun Ha Mayan Ruins.
The guides were wonderful!! Lot of uphill walking for the zip line and the zip line guides did great!!! IT WAS FUN :)
Zip lining was really awesome! The crew are really laid back & get the gear on and off the line quick. Coach you thru it if you need it. Will come and get you if you get stuck. The cave tubing part is a very long hike to the starting point. Rocks cover the entire path, which I don't recall reading in any of the other reviews. Shoes need to be like sandles that can get wet.. not water shoes. Otherwise you'll kill your feet. You also need to be physically fit or you will hold the group back and others will not be happy with you. The caves.. bring a water proof flash light so you can see. Wish I had brought my own.. missed most of the cave due to little light. I

The tour guides were fantastic. I along with the three friends I brought with me were extremely happy with this tour. We had an amazing time.
The tour guides were great and the Zip Lining was AMAZING! Absolutely beautiful! We even saw howler monkeys. It had been raining, so we weren't able to do the cave tubing which was a real disappointment. We went to some ruins and that was great. Would highly recommend!

This was an absolutely fantastic excursion! Our guides were wonderful and our group was small.....6 people. We did the zip lining first. This was our first time zip lining and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tubing was cool and refreshing. We definitely would do this one again.
