Where Cave Tubing in Belize?
Cutting through Mayan Mountains, Belize’s Cave Branch River, better known as Jaguar Paw, is a top-class waterway for cave tubing exploration. Gerson and Emilio from Belize Jungle Masters are the founders of these trails, and were the first to discover the cave. Cave tubing begins with a 30 minute educational hike through the jungle-discovering Belize’s flora and fauna, birds and insects.
A larger river system of rapids, the Sibun River, is a more challenging but fantastic tubing system. On this one mile cave system, look out for gigantic stalactites that have been hanging for centuries. Learn about the history of the Mayas, and the variety of ceremonies performed in the cave-including human sacrifices.
Cave tubing is usually a half day tour but can be combined with Zip Lining for an exciting day out!
