Cave Tubing in Belize
Posted by David Kafka on 02/27/2017 03:38 PM
Using your headlight to light your way, in a dark dark cave might sound nightmarish to some people. It sounded a little nightmarish to me, hence my butt not being able to touch the water the whole time we were in the cave, I still had a ton of fun. The drips you hear echoing make the cave sound mysterious as to what could be around the corner.
The cave tubing guide is always an expert at Mayan and Belizean history and he’s pointing out various things as the stream carries you on, occasionally paddling along. Your guide will point out how the river system worked and even how some of the caves came to be over millennia. At the end of the tour, you’re greeted with amazing local lunch, often BBQ chicken served with rice and beans. An excellent day all around, I definitely recommend taking yourself out of a comfort zone and experiencing this exquisite tour.
