|WHAT TO BRING||
The experts at Caves Branch Outpost have combined zip lining, caving and rappelling into one fun heart-pounding adventure to create an experience that you won’t forget.
After a safety briefing, the tour sets off with a short 10-minute hike up the trail that meanders through the foothills of the Maya Mountains, your guide will highlight plants and wildlife as you make your way to the cave site. After descending (rappelling) 30ft into the cave which extends up to 100 ft. around, observe stalagmites and stalactites inching towards each other to someday form a solid column. Look out for cave crickets, cave spiders, centipedes, millipedes, beetles, moths, bats and also birds that nest near the caves entrance. Caves in this area were used by the Maya and clay pots and shards are strewn throughout the cave. After a 30-minute tour we exit the cave via a rope ladder and move onto to the ziplines. This leads us to an extreme 400ft long, 280ft high zipline from foothill to foothill boasting a great view of the rainforest below. Dismount the zipline on a 125ft rope bridge to get to the rappel site. Now this brings us to the most heart pounding part of the adventure! One final rappel but this time a 200ft drop down a rock face which seems to stop time.
After rappelling a 20-minutes nature walk bring us to a well-deserved tasty Belizean lunch.

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.
