Cave Tubing and Zip Lining in Belize
Belize is a natural wonderland packed full of exciting things to see and do. Two of the most exciting activities that you can enjoy in the country are zip lining and cave tubing.
Just as you might imagine, cave tubing is a relaxing adventure that involves using an inflatable inner tube to float down a gentle river that runs underground through a cave.
Certain areas of Belize such as the South Stann Creek River and St. Herman’s Cave are perfect for cave tubing as they are gentle watercourses which flows through a pristine section of the rainforest. After arriving at the river, a guide will equip participants with headlamps. Once everyone is on their own personal inner tube, the current will take participants downstream, passing through incredibly vibrant foliage and plant life along the way. After passing several bends, the river will then enter the mouth of a cave, and the true adventure will begin.
As the rays of light from the headlamps reflect off the glittering crystalline formations inside the cave, participants will enjoy the privileged experience of entering the sacred underworld of the ancient Maya. As the journey continues, participants will get to see stalagmites and stalactites reveal themselves in all their natural splendor.
For approximately an hour, participants will enjoy the underground serenity until they re-emerge into the bright daylight once more.
The perfect activity to pair with cave tubing in Belize is zip lining. This adrenaline-pumping activity is perfectly safe but delivers a true rush as participants sail through the jungle canopy along long steel cables.
Zip lining involves a brief hike through the jungle to reach the first platform. From there, a safety lecture follows as well as a brief explanation about the rules. Participants must then climb up high into the canopy to reach the first platform.
Criss-crossing through the jungle and providing a bird’s eye view of the nature below, zip lining is an incredibly fun activity. The rush of wind in your hair and the ability to see jungle wildlife from a new perspective are just two of the many reasons why zip lining in Belize is such a popular activity.
