Belize Caving Shore Excursion
Travel through Amish territory on route to explore Barton Creek Cave by kayak/canoe (each kayak holds 2 people). No prior kayaking or canoeing experience is needed for this relaxing trip. Equipped with high-powered lights, guests gently paddle into Xibalba (she-bal-ba), Maya for underworld. The Barton Creek Cave holds stalactites, stalagmites, calcite crystals and some Mayan artifacts. Tour guides will explain the use of this cave by the ancient Maya. For the free spirited adventurer, the option for excellent swimming in the far chamber is a treat. Great mud baths to cleanse your skin is an added option
Mayan Temples Shore Excursion
Explore 2 neighboring cities of the ancient Mayan, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech. These 2 Mayan sites are 6 miles apart, each boasting their own unique traditions and separate but interrelated histories. Today we know that Cahal Pech is several centuries older than Xunantunich and each settlement had different high points in their civilizations. Although their history overlaps, there is no evidence of rivalry or war between the cities.
Local tour guides have all been hand picked and trained by a Mayan archaeologist, so their knowledge of these sites and the surrounding nature is second-to-none. One of the unique features of the Mayan cities in Belize is the lack of restrictions. Still able to climb, touch and enter the structures, unlike most of temples in Mexico, this type of Mayan sites exploration will most likely be brought to a halt once more and more people start coming to Belize
Cave Tubing Shore Excursion
Explore the Belize Cave systems by floating on an inner tube. This is an extremely popular trip and a relaxing way to see the many stalactites, stalagmites and calcite crystals inside the cave. Tour guides will explain the history of the cave and the way the ancient Maya viewed caves (they represented the underworld and were important places for rituals and worship). This trip is for people of all fitness levels, but not advised for those who are not able to swim. You will get wet on this trip
