It was just a wonderful...
Michael_M, Mar 2023
It was just a wonderful experience. Floating through a cave with all the formations and water colors was amazing.
AMAZING!!! Wish it was longer!
Colette_R, Feb 2023
This was a great experience. We somehow lucked out and basically had a private tour with Leo. He was SO informative about the jungle/rainforest and the Mayan culture. I learned so much and had SO much fun. We were still able to do this even in the rain. Honestly, wouldn't change a thing about this experience except that I wish it was longer, but I just didn't want it to end. Definitely choose to do BOTH caves.
Highly recommend

Outstanding adventure...would highly recommend. We were out there for nearly the entire day and went through 3 different caves. Will definitely do again next time I'm in Belize
Great time

Lots of fun! Went as a family of 5. Definitely recommend. Beautiful crystal clear water. Guides were very informative
Amazing cave tubing with Edgar!
Monica_A, Apr 2022
Edgar was an amazing guide! It was just the three of us on the trip so we were able to ride our tubes individually. This allowed us to travel wherever we wanted on the river, climb up on the rocks, stop when we wanted. It was awesome. Edgar took us to the further river drop in so we went through two caves and had the first one all to ourselves. It was cool to see how diverse the caves were. He encouraged us to ask questions. We talked about everything from Mayan history, to Belize’s education system, to our families. My camera didn’t work so he took pictures with his and shared them after. He even made a stop at the pharmacy for me on the way home. Highly recommended this tour with Edgar. The walk to the second cave is worth it. Ride individually if you can. Use bug spray for the walk through the trees.
Tons of fun, amazing tour guide, and overall memorable experience!

There are a lot of places that offer cave tubing out of San Ignacio -- and I am SO glad I booked this trip! Our guide Sisco was incredible. Not only was he super knowledgeable, but he also really let us choose our own adventure along the way. Our group was able to choose between floating solo in a inner tube or being attached to the guide in the bigger blue tubes. None of the other groups we saw had solo floaters like us - which was a great experience! Sisco also had us stop at the second cave and get out of our tubes to explore which made the trip even more memorable. All of the other tour groups just floated on by while we got to see and learn so much more about the caves. Tons of fun, and couldn't recommend it more highly!
Cave tubing Fantastic!!!!

We had great time on this tour. It was very relaxing and the caves and jungle were beautiful. While many of the guides tied their groups together in a line of tubes and quickly swam them through the cave, our guide let us leisurely float through, enjoying the caves for a longer time period. He was informative and did not seem in a hurry to move on to the next group and making more money etc. We learned a lot about the plants along the hiking trail as we went, as well as about the rock formations inside the cave. Our guide took us a very cool little cliff jumping spot inside the cave as well. I would recommend this trip!
THE BEST tour we've ever booked on...
