Cave Tubing and Zip Line Combo
Sale Price: $99.00
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 5 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.
Loved the tour guides and personal attention to details. Everything went very smoothly and we enjoyed this fun combination of activities. It was the perfect family outing for our day in Belize.

Great tour. The only drawback is the drive to get there. And, with 3 ships in port, there were a LOT of people. Despite the crowds, we enjoyed the tour.

Tubing was much more crowded than I would prefer. Did it at a different location several years ago and were allowed to float at a small group and had to tie together on this excursion. Overall, it was fun. Zip lining was great, but one of the five was not functional.

The Zip Line guys were all very nice and professional. David was awesome as our guide through the cave tubing. We had a wonderful experience with him.

Great guides and a lot of fun. Zip line isn't extreme, a bit on the short side. Should note that the walk to start the tubing is over a mile and you carry your own tube! Tour taken March 2019
