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 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.

We had a great tour guide who told us about the history of Belize as we drove in hour. The Zip lining crew was amazing. Cave tubing was awesome and refreshing however the caves were very crowded with other tour groups.

This was amazing! Long bus ride to place, but enjoyed listening to talk along the way. Zip lining in the jungle was great!! Since it was my first time, I appreciated the first, short practice run line. The operators were professional and I felt safe the whole time. Cave tubing was also amazing! Our tour guide took care of us beautifully. We just had to carry our tubes to the starting spot and then got to lay back and let him guide us through the caves as we lounged in our tubes. I'm a little claustrophobic, but it was no problem being in the caves as our lights on our helmets helped and the view was outstanding. Lunch on the bus ride home was delicious, but not the best way to enjoy your lunch. Would definitely recommend this to others!

This was the best excursion of our trip. I was terrified to go zip lining, but the gentlemen at the place were extremely patient and understanding. They never rushed me and always made sure I was comfortable and ready to go down the lines. The cave tubing was amazing. Our tour guides were very informative and did everything they could to keep our large group together. I would definitely highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have a wonderful time and a great experience!
Overall great experience! The location is a little far, and the downside is that you have to carry the tube.
Everything was awesome! Our guides took care of everything for us. It was a perfect day in Belize!!! Everything went as planned...no lines or long waits. We were in a group of 14 with 3 guides...would definitely recommend this adventure!!
