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). Please be advised that lunch 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: Lunch at the restaurant is optional and at your expense.

I was a bit disappointed because the river was too high to tub, but our guide was awesome and took us to Mayan ruins instead. He was pleasant, knowable and enjoyable to be with. I wish I could remember his name, darn it!!

WOW! This was relaxing and fun and unique. Our guide worked so hard to educate us on the biology of the area, and we saw the city, the plains, and the jungle areas of Belize from his van. He guided us through the whole cave while we just lounged in our tubes, and the jungle around the river past the cave was so very beautiful. And the guys at the Zip Line even found my son's phone for him when he dropped it into the jungle from 150 feet. JUST DO THIS excursion.

well managed and fun
The ONLY reason this is getting 4 stars is that I don't recall reading that the travel time from Belize City to the excursion is about an hour long. Otherwise, the experience was amazing!

Tubing was great to do with my son and friends.
