Cave Tubing & Zipride At Cave Branch Outpost
Embark on drive via the Western Highway to Caves ranch Outpost in the Nohoch Che'en Caves Branch Archeological Reserve, your adventure headquarters for the day. The Outpost is located a few hundred feet from the Caves Branch River and its winding waterway through the ancient caves once inhabited by the Maya.

Your Zipride adventure starts with gear fittings (safety harness and hard-hat) followed by instructions and safety briefing. Become a "Zip rider" today as you connect to a series of overhead cables criss-crossing the rainforest canopy. The zipline course features a "beginner's zip run" of only 150 feet. Six other zip runs range in length from 200' to 600' between treetop platforms secured in the canopy of tropical hardwood trees. Intriguing karst limestone cliffs provide a scenic backdrop as you zip through the rainforest canopy. This zipline course is truly unforgettable and second to none in Central America and the Caribbean. It is fully insured and also certified by Challenge Course Technologies (ACCT).

Your Cave Tubing adventures starts with gear fittings (personal tubes, hard-hat with headlamp and life vest) and then you set out on a nature walk where your guide will point out various plants, roots, and herbs once used by the ancient Maya, various species of birds as well as an introduction to Xibalba (she-bal-ba). The entrance tunnel that heads into the underground cave system is the start of an "eye opening" adventure. At the end of the walk your guide will conduct a safety briefing on proper cave exploration procedures and then you are ready to float on inflated inner tubes assisted by gentle currents taking you through the cave system. Intricate crystalline formations line the caves, and stalagmites and stalactites add to the serene opulence of nature.

Xunatunich Maya Temples/Belize Zoo With Lunch
Your adventure begins as you drive from Belize City on the Western Highway heading for the wildlife habitat known as The Belize Zoo. The Zoo was created as a sanctuary for the country's indigenous species and is now home for an impressive array of large cats, primates, reptiles and birds. A visit to the Zoo gives you the opportunity to see Belize's amazing wildlife in one location.

Xunantunich (Maya for "Maiden of the Rock") sits just inside the Western border of Belize to nearby Guatemala. Before reaching the entrance of this ancient city, your party will board a 19th century hand-cranked ferry which takes you across the Mopan River during which there is regular sighting of huge green iguanas. A short shuttle ride from the ferry brings you to the entrance of Xunantunich which is located on one of the highest plateaus in the area. After restroom break your group meets at the Visitor's Center for a historical presentation. During your archeological walk you will be looking out for birds and howler monkeys, and your guide will be pointing out interesting and important trees and plants (Copal, Ramon, Cotton, Allspice) which played a major role, both medicinally and as a food source, to the Maya in ancient times. Your walk back in time will include viewing of original carved monuments (stellae) which depict Maya rulers and warriors in their full regalia, as well as residential palaces for Maya elites. The highlight of your Maya exploration brings you to "El Castillo", the tallest of the temples at this site which is 130 feet from ground level. About half way up the temple you get to appreciate an astronomical carving unique to Xunantunich, depicting Maya gods that was discovered in the 1950s. If you decide to continue the upward walk to the peak of the temple you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Belize River Valley in the Cayo District and nearby Guatemala.
