Cave Tubing and Aerial Zipline Adventure
On arrival in Belize City embark on an hour´s drive to Caves Branch National Park, your adventure headquarters for the day. The Park is located near the Caves Branch River with its winding path through the Maya Mountains and numerous ancient caves once inhabited by the Maya.
Your first activity is an Aerial Trek, a zip-line tour through broadleaf rainforest. It begins with a ten minute hike through the rainforest to the starting platform.
The tour then features an intricate harness system of pulleys on horizontal traverse cables which lets you “zip” 100 – 124 feet between treetop platforms secured 70 feet high at canopy level. Being at this level literally gives you a bird’s eye view of all the tropical palms and trees which is a truly unforgettable experience!
Tubing in the Maya Caves
Next, be prepared for a 30 minute jungle trail hike. Your guide will point out various plants, roots, and herbs once used by the ancient Maya. The entrance tunnel that heads into the underground cave system is the start of an eye opening adventure.
Your guide hands out flash lights, and you are ready to float in inflated inner tubes assisted by gentle currents taking you through the cave system. Intricate crystalline formations, stalagmites and stalactites line the caves.
Age requirements - 8 years or older. Not recommended for non-swimmers. Participants must be at least 80 lbs in order to fit securely into the harness for Aerial Trek.
