Upon arrival at the site, you are fitted with a safety harness and then briefed on all that you can expect to see and do while on the tour.
The first platform you experience is the icebreaker, a trial run which is 130 feet long and 10 feet high to prepare you for what’s next. The remaining runs vary in lengths between 400 feet, 600 feet, and up to 1,000 feet, crossing over the Caves Branch River.
Look out for the keel billed toucan, collard aracari, slated tailed trogan, or even curasows (wild turkeys) along the way. Common animal sightings include coati mundis, gray foxes, and even howler monkeys.
The cave tubing adventure starts with a leisure walk under the jungle canopy, led by our expert tour guides. We often encounter black howler monkeys and coati mundis along the trails. Your guide points out medicinal plants of significance as you make your way through this natural botanical garden.
Upon arrival at the entrance of Xibalba, the Maya underworld, you can’t help but be mesmerized by its beauty. Here we can relax, take pictures, swim, and enjoy the beauty of the karts cave. Next we set off for an expedition through time and history on inflated tubes.
Hundreds of stalactite formations decorate the ceiling of the caves. Some formations take familiar shapes such as the American bald eagle, a water lily, a serpent, and a jellyfish, all sculpted by Mother Nature and Father Time. As we move through the cave system, look out for the natural opening in the ceiling known as a cenote or a natural sinkhole.
You can expect to see fruit bats, insect bats, and false vampire bats along the journey as they nest in the ceiling of the caves. We emerge from the cave system into the open river, and if time allows, we enjoy a bit of swimming and splashing around before a tasty Belize lunch.
