Cave Tubing and Canopy Zip-lining Tour
Scheduled Tour

Adventure through the mysterious darkness of the Mayan underworld as you cave tube through our Belize rivers and zip-line through the jungle.


Our Cave Tubing and Canopy Zip-lining Tour starts with a short hike in the heart of the Belizean wilderness. Upon arrival, you will be given a safety briefing and outfitted with a body harness, helmet, and gloves. Traverse from treetop to treetop, 80 feet above the forest floor, dangling from the steel cables of the zip-line. This tour includes five platforms ranging from 100 to 500 feet of flying!

After working up a sweat with our zip-lining excursion, take a refreshing tour of our cooling rivers while cave tubing. Hike for 20 minutes to the entrance of the magnificent cave system. You will reach a stunning lagoon surrounded by steep limestone walls to witness the mystery of “Xibalba,” the heart of the Mayan underworld. By now you are in the depths of this ancient cave system and can float along in the darkness, with your headlamp as the only source of light. Led by our guides and gently pushed along by a flowing current, you will pass through impressive sanctuaries used by the Maya for sacrificial rituals. Plunge into darkness if you are brave enough to turn off your headlamps, and listen to the sounds of the cascading waterfalls and rapids.

Jungle Zip-lining and Waterfall Hiking Tour
Specialty Tour

Hike along lush trails through unexcavated Mayan temples to the 1,000ft Antelope Waterfall and zip-line through the rainforest


Located in the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, less than 15 miles from Belizean Dreams Resort, our friendly guides will lead you to a pristine hike through the Belize jungle. Explore unexcavated ceremonial Maya mounds with temples and ancient ball courts hidden beneath its surface.


Archaeologists are still uncovering the history of what’s hidden below the overgrown jungle. As you get deeper into the lush rainforest look out for orchids, birds, and exotic animals. The hike to Antelope Falls is truly worth the effort. As the 1,000ft fall cascades down the massive rock face, take in the expansive views over the jungle and out to the sea. End your hike with a refreshing swim in the oasis - a smaller fall that fills a beautiful emerald pool, at the very top of the waterfall offering you a breathtaking view.

Thereafter, you will head to the Bocawina Zip-line, which offers two and a half miles of zipping with three traverses as high as 2,300 feet. This is considered the longest zip line in Belize. The entire course has eight traverses and twelve platforms with two free fall rappels. The double cable course is ACCT certified and our experienced guides will make even the faint of heart feel safe and secure.

ATM Cave Tour
Specialty Tour

Discovered in 1989, and open to the general public since 1998, this is hands down the most talked about cave in Belize. It was named the #1 sacred cave in the world by National Geographic. For the fit and adventurous, this three miles deep ATM cave is surely a must-see.


ATM Cave, also known as the cave of the crystal sepulchre or Xibalba, is located in the Roaring Creek Valley in a karstic limestone terrain. On approach, the hourglass shaped entrance of the cave rises before you with the river rushing pass from the inner depths of the cave. Within its dark recesses you will discover large clay jars, left long ago by the Maya people, in hopes that the gods of rain and fertility would find them suitable offerings. Ceramics, stoneware, and skeletons lay forgotten for centuries. The most famous is “The Crystal Maiden,” a young girl sacrificed and left for the gods, her bones slowly claimed by the cave and calcified to the sparkling, crystallized remains you can view today.


Your tour starts with a 45 minute hike in the cool tropical rainforest where you will cross three streams and eventually enter the cave’s hourglass shaped mouth for a 30 foot swim in water that reaches depths of 15 feet. You swim until you touch bottom and land on a rock shelf. The next 2,000 feet is a journey that takes well over half an hour. It is filled with many sharp and slippery edges and water depths alternate from just covering your toes to portions where only the tallest won't need to swim. After this distance you ascend seven to ten feet to a shelf above the river.  From this point forward it is shallow and you walk barefoot (with socks only) to protect the cave.

As you go forward you will encounter increasing amounts of pottery, tools, and ceremonial items in all sizes and in conditions from near intact to completely shattered. The artwork found in Actun Uayazba Kab (a section of the cave) is unmatched when compared to any other site. The deeper in the cave you go, the more recent the activities of the Mayans were. Use of the cave by the Mayans of the Late Pre-Classic (1 to 250 AD), shows they tended to stay near the mouth of the cave, whereas later generations moved further into the cave, perhaps believing that this would bring them closer to the gods of Xibalba.

A not-so-common artifact is human remains. So far, remains from fourteen individuals have been found; seven adults & seven children (all under the age of five). These are not the ceremonial burials found in the other two caves in the area, but are sacrificial victims. They were all likely sacrificed in the hopes of appeasing the gods to bring rain. Young victims, particularly females, were important for rituals to be "zuhui" - pure and uncontaminated in the eyes of the gods. The Crystal Maiden was a young woman of about 20 years old whose complete remains lie at the back of the cave. It is believed that she was clubbed and left for dead and with the passing of time she has been cemented to the floor in a layer of brown calcite. To reach her final resting place, you must climb aluminum ladders mounted on a sheer rock face. Don’t choose this tour if you are not an adventure lover, it is not for the faint of heart!

The zip lining and cave tubing was exciting and fun. The lines are long and you are able to go over the canopies and the river for great views. The cave tubing was refreshing and beautiful. The drive to the zip lining/cave tubing was 2.5 hours but well worth it. - TripAdvisor user
