Caving, Belize: 25 reviews and 37 photos


Cave tubing is a must! We started our day by hiking for an hour up the river. it didn't seem very long at all because we ate our way there. Carlos our guide from Casa Maya started off as a stranger and became our friend by the end of our trip to Belize. He taught us about the value of all of the plants in the jungle and had us tsting things and educting us about the importance of some of the plants to the jungle. We ate sugar cane, and say pinapples growing. We used berries to keep the bugs away (this was the only time we encountered mosquitos). Once a teh top of the river we tested our equipment and hopped into the river inside of a cave. I was too chicken to shut off my head lamp at first, but i eventually did it! It was so peaceful to listen to the river while it carried us slowly back down to where we started. inbetween two caves we stopped to have lunch and go for a dip. When we were done playing, it slowly started to rain, and then pour. We all just stood around and looked at each other...we were inthe rainforrest and here was the rain! After our day in the river we changed in the midlle of nowhere and went to find a great local bar to warm ourselves up! Carlos introduced us to Jackass Bitters. Ask any local about this!
