Experience the thrill of a treetop zipline and the mystery of ancient caves in this combo Belize adventure. After your guide picks you up at your Belize City hotel, take an air-conditioned ride to the Jaguar Paw rainforest near the scenic Caves Branch River.
After a short walk through the lush 200-acre (80-hectare) forest, you’ll gear up and get a quick safety training from your guide. For the next hour, fly through the jungle on a series of ziplines, some as long as 500 feet (152 meters). You'll soar above Crystal Cave — considered sacred by the ancient Maya — then descend 150 feet (45 meters) down its limestone face. Congratulate yourself for completing one of the longest rappels in Belize!
After the adrenaline rush, settle into an inner tube for a relaxing ride along the Caves Branch River. Mellow currents will take you through several caves, where you can marvel at intricate crystallized formations. Inside the dramatic chamber of the Crystal Cave, you'll see remarkable stalactite structures including a giant, sparkling column reminiscent of a waterfall. Your guide will also point out stone vessels and other artifacts used for ceremonial purposes by the Maya more than 1,000 years ago.
Regain your footing back on solid ground, and enjoy a traditional Belizean lunch at the on-site café. Afterward, you will be dropped off back at your hotel.
If you're short on time, you can book the tours separately, completing ziplining and rappelling on one day and cave tubing on another.
