Upon arrival at the site, you are fitted with your own safety harness and then briefed on all that you can expect to see and do while on the tour.
The first platform is the icebreaker, a trial run which is 130 feet long and 10 feet high to prepare you for what’s next. For the remaining runs, the lengths vary between 400 feet, 600 feet, and up to 1,000 feet, crossing over the Caves Branch River.
Along the way, look out for the keel billed toucan, collard aracari, slated tailed trogan, or even curasows (wild turkeys). Coati mundis, gray foxes, and even howler monkeys are some of the common animal sightings.
Cave tubing starts with a leisure walk under the jungle canopy, led by our expert tour guides. Black howler monkeys and coati mundis are often encountered 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, one cannot help but be mesmerized by its beauty. We then relax, take pictures, swim, and enjoy the beauty of the karts cave. Next we set off on inflated tubes for an expedition through time and history.
Hundreds of stalactite formations decorate the ceiling of the caves. Some formations stand out and 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.
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 time allows for a bit of swimming and splashing around before a tasty Belize lunch.
