After a short tender ride from your cruise ship to the docks in Belize City, you will board an air conditioned coach bus and head due West on a 37-mile scenic drive from Belize City to the Caves Branch Outpost at Nohoch Chen Archaeological Park, your headquarters for the day. During the bus ride your tour guides will provide you with interesting commentary on Belize's culture, history and topography. Your first activity is the Belize Ziprider, a zip line adventure ride through the Belize rainforest. The zip line tour features an intricate harness system of pulleys on horizontal traverse cables which lets you swing 100 â€' 124 feet between platforms 70 feet high in the trees at canopy level. This portion of the tour begins with a ten minute hike through the rainforest to the starting platform; the next 30 â€' 40 minutes are spent flying through the forest with the birds â€' a truly unforgettable experience! Once at the final platform, you rappel 40 feet to the forest floor.
Following lunch, your next adventure for the day is cave tubing. You are issued your tubes, headlights and safety gear before hiking through the rainforest to the entrance of the cave system. Once at the entrance of the caves your guides brief you on safety procedures while tubing and then its time for your cave tubing adventure through Xibalba! Intricate crystalline formations line the caves and the majestic rise and fall of stalagmites and stalactites add to the serene opulence of nature. On several occasions you will emerge into the sunlight only to enter into another cave system.
