Placencia Tours

Cave tubing and canopy zip lining

Belize Tours - ZipliningExperience exhilaration and feel at one with nature on an exciting zip line and cave tubing adventure!  The zip line tour is a first class high adventure trip for adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers in the heart of the Belizean wilderness.

The tour involves traversing from tree platform to tree platform, 80’ above the forest floor dangling only from a steel cable. There are 5 sections ranging from 105—500 feet of flying!

Upon arrival you will be given a safety briefing and then outfitted in the safety equipment of body harness, helmet and gloves. A short jungle hike to the first platform ensues before heading into the jungle canopy to start this wild adventure. 

After your zip line adventure, the cave tubing begins!  With inner tube and headlamps in hand, you begin the one mile walk along a lush, tropical trail which passes through a shallow portion of the river; and two walk- through caves before reaching a stunning lagoon surrounded by steep limestone walls.  The moment you enter the cool waters, the mystery of "Xibalba” (pronounced “Shee-bal-ba”) the underworld of the Maya takes hold. Float along the darkness gently pushed by a current and led by your guide into two large chambers, both impressive sanctuaries used by the Maya for sacrificial rituals. Plunge into darkness if you are brave enough to turn off your headlights, and listen to the sounds of the cascading waterfalls and bubbling rapids.

Mayflower waterfalls Hiking tour
