Belize is only the country in the Western Hemisphere where this fun, relaxing and mystic activity has achieved great expectations. Combine water, caving, and archaeology in Belize, “WE HAVE CAVING FOR THE SOUL”. Cave tubing is a physically mellow adventure, relaxing, rejuvenating, yet adventurous. In Belize is very rare to find caves without any evidence that the Ancient Maya were there performing their sacred ceremonies millennia ago, it’s precisely this that makes caving in Belize so interesting. Caves were their portals to the spiritual world, the realm of spirits on their quest to the heavens, a place where they could contact their ancestors and the god of the “underworld”.
Cave tubing is just 1 ½ hour away from Hopkins, San Ignacio, and 2 hours away from Placencia. Your Guide waits for you at visitor center with all the needed equipment. During a 10 minute hike to the cave entrance, your guide will introduce you to the diverse flora and fauna of the area. After a two or three-minute walk in the cave, your guide will give a talk on the geology of the area as well as in cave, archaeology- feel free to put him to test with your questions. Ten more minutes of walking up the cave with only your headlights to shine your way and you will be getting into that refreshing splash of underground water. For rest of the time you will be swirling past stalactites and stalagmites, at times enjoying the peacefulness of only the water drops from the ceiling playing a percussion of cave music. Your guide gives you a chance to float in total and darkness and experience that timeless and at times weightless feeling.
Cave tubing is one of the most popular adventures one can only enjoy in Belize, but nothing more special than floating through caves in small groups instead of the regular crowded ones.
We offer private cave tubing that will definitely blow your mind and will take you into peaceful encounter with Belize’s natural wonders and ancient Maya times.
