Your Cave Tubing adventures starts with a jungle trail hike where your guide will point out various plants, roots, and herbs once used by the ancient Maya.  The entrance tunnel that heads into the underground cave system is the start of an “eye opening” adventure.  Your guide hands out head-lamps, and you are ready to float in 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.  Select your lunch from a wide range of buffet items from the “Canopy Café” at Caves Branch Outpost. Continuation drive via the Western Highway en route to the Cayo (pronounced Ky-o) District for 3 nights.
Jour 3 Xunantunich & Barton Creek Cave (B/L) Board a 19th century hand-cranked ferry which will take you across the Mopan River to the Maya ruins of Xunantunich (Maya for “Maiden of the Rock’) which sits just inside the Western border of Belize and Guatemala.  The ruins are actually located on one of the highest plateaus in the area and it is possible to climb to the top of “El Castillo”, the largest of the temples at this site.  From this vantage point, one gains a panoramic view of the Cayo District and nearby Guatemala. Next, we continue to Barton Creek Cave in Amish territory. Gently paddle your canoe into Xibalba (she-bal-ba), Maya for underworld.  As you glide through the cave you will be dazzled by the glistening crystalline formations and awed by the Maya artefacts secretly tucked away in overhead alcoves.
Jour 4 Free day / Optional Tours (B) Free day to explore Western Belize at your leisure. Optional activities that can be pre-booked or purchased locally include: visit to an ancient Maya city (Caracol, Cahal Pech, Tikal), cave exploration (Actun Tunichil Muknal, Barton Creek Caves), horseback riding, and river canoeing.
Jour 5 Belize’s Wildlife Sanctuary – Belize Zoo (B) Your adventure begins as you head for the wildlife habitat known as the Belize Zoo for an introduction to the country’s diverse fauna.  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. Jaguars, tapirs, toucan and jabirus are but a few of the exotic species for photo opportunities.  A visit to the Zoo gives you the opportunity to see Belize’s amazing wildlife in one location. Continuation drive to Belize City where you will connect on a water taxi for just over 1 hour transfer to the quaint seaside village of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye for 3 nights of island ambience.
Jour 6 Hol Chan Mbarine Reserve & Shark Ray Alley (B) Snorkel the first marine reserve established in Central America – Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
