One of the best ways to enjoy the great outdoors in Belize is with this combination of The Belize Cave Tubing and Zip Line Tour.
The tour begins at the Caves Branch Outpost located in the heart of Belize’s pristine Cayo District. It is the ultimate location for travelers interested in a fun adventure in nature. The outpost has everything you need to enjoy a day exploring nature, including an open-air restaurant called the Canopy Cafe, a gift shop, the famous Cashew Bar, and restroom facilities.
The Belize Cave Tubing Tour is an activity that combines all the fun of lazily floating down a river with the underground majesty of enormous stalactites and stalagmites. Belize is uniquely blessed with subterranean rivers that flow through caves, giving participants a chance to compare the inky beauty of some of the country’s most magnificent caves with the full might and glory of exotic birds, wild animals, and abundant plants along the banks of the river.
Once back onshore, the zip lining portion of the tour begins. Connecting platforms mounted high up in the jungle canopy, zip lines sail for hundreds of feet to give participants a unique bird’s eye view of the environment.
What to bring to the Belize Cave Tubing Tour:
- Sunscreen and other forms of protection (hat, sunglasses, etc).
- Plenty of drinking water.
- Lightweight, comfortable clothes.
- A towel.
- Insect repellent.
- Money for snacks and souvenirs.
- A change of socks and shoes.
- A camera.
Combination tours are available which combine the cave tubing/zip lining adventure with other exciting activities. The Outpost provides ground transportation to the facilities. They also have available personal security lockers for individuals wanting to safely store their belongings while on the tour.
Belize’s western Cayo District is the eco-tourism heartland of the country. A combination of few urban settlements, proactive legislation to protect important natural areas, and a unique climate perfect for a wide variety of flora and fauna species to thrive make enjoying the great outdoors in this part of Belize a unique experience. The jungles of western Belize are home to a thriving ecosystem. Which includes medicinal plants that have been used by the Maya for thousands of years and elusive big cats like pumas and jaguars. This area of Belize is home to hundreds of species of birds, including curassows, guans, singing quails, parrots, and toucans.
