The Belize Ziplining Adventure (or canopy tour) is one of Belize’s most popular recreational activities for the entire family. Here at Caves Branch Outpost, we take safety as a priority and have implemented safety standards to ensure that ziplining is as fun and safe as a possible. Guests as young as five-year-olds to seniors that still want to feel an adrenalin rush are all welcomed.
Upon arrival at the site you will be fitted with your own safety harness and then briefed on all that you will see and what you can expect while on the tour. The first platform is the icebreaker, a trial run which is 130 ft. long and 10 ft. high for those who are still in doubt. . For the remaining runs the lengths vary from 400ft, 600ft and the longest which is 1000ft crossing over the Caves Branch River. Along the way look out for the Keel Billed Toucan, Collard Aracari, Slated Tailed Trogan or even Curasows(wild turkeys). The Coati Mundis, Gray Fox and even Howler Monkeys are some of the common animal sightings.

Tubing the Crystal Cave, nestled in the limestone foothills of the Maya Mountains, is a unique experience combining fun while learning something about Belizean rainforests. Revered as the sacred underworld (or Xibalba) of the ancient Maya people that inhabited Belize, caves are often littered with precious antiquities and ceramics that date back to 200 B.C.
Your tour is led by a licensed tour guide, very well trained in first aid and swift water rescue. The tour begins with a leisure walk under the forest canopy leading to the entrance of the cave system. Along the walk the flora and fauna of Belize will be highlighted. The sacred Ceiba and historic Mahogany are among the emergents that soar above the canopy. In addition, many medicinal plants and a few fruit trees line the trail of this natural botanical garden. Occasionally, Black Howler Monkeys or Coati mundis are encountered.
Once we have settled at the cave entrance, we enter the Caves Branch River for a refreshing swim. Next we set off on inflated tubes for an expedition through time and history. Hundreds of stalactite formations decorate the ceiling of Xibalba. Some formations stand out and take familiar shapes such as the American Bald Eagle, a water lily, serpent and a jellyfish, all sculpted by “Mother Nature” and “Father Time”. As we move through the cave system look out for the natural opening in the ceiling known as a cenote or a natural sinkhole. We approach the sinkhole with our lights off to truly appreciate its mystique which was featured by National Geographic magazine.
We emerge from the cave system into the open river and time allows for a bit of swimming and splashing around before a tasty Belize lunch.
