CAVE TUBING & JUNGLE ZIP LINING
An adventurous combination of hiking and cave tubing within a cave system, this is a fun activity! Float on inner tubes with only your headlamp to guide the way as the Caves Branch River winds a path through the Maya mountain and numerous caves.
Secured by a harness with feet dangling free, zip line riders will traverse from 75 ft high platforms whizzing past a stunning display of tropical flora and fauna. Daring participants will rappel to the rainforest floor from the final platform for a thrilling one-of-a-kind jungle adventure.
LAMANAI MAYA RUINS
The name "Lamanai" comes from the word "submerged crocodile" in the Mayan language. This site, situated along the New River Lagoon, features monumental architecture of temples and palaces dating from the Classic and Pre-Classic Periods. Pollen evidence dates the earliest occupation at the site to be about 1500 B.C. The earliest pottery has been dated to about 500 B.C.
But getting there and back is half the fun. See more of the land of Belize on your way to the river, and then enjoy an enchanting jungle boat ride complete with native wildlife!
ST. HERMAN’S CAVE & BLUE HOLE NATIONAL PARK
This is your best opportunity to get up close and personal with the Belize jungle environment and hike nature trails with breathtaking views. The park is a source of wonder with numerous underground streams, sinkholes and extensive cave system, and is ideal for birding with over 200 species of birds. Three of the five species of wild cats found in Belize - jaguar, ocelot and jaguarondi - have been sighted in the park.
A guided exploration into the cave system takes you through huge caverns that are adorned with crystalline formations. Take a walk down the footpath and staircase of the Maya shaman and priest as they journeyed into the underworld where they used the chambers deep within the cave for their ceremonies. See Maya artifacts such as pottery, beads, obsidian knives, and human skeletons calcified in the limestone floor that date back 2000 years.
Complete your adventure with a refreshing swim in the sapphire water of the Blue Hole National Park.
