Cave tubing in Belize

Cave tubing in Belize

Nothing Compares to Cave Tubing at Nohoch Che’en Caves Branch Reserve

Imagine settling into an oversized rubber inner tube and floating down a river without a care in the world–until you disappear into caves where strange and exotic Mayan rituals were held thousands of years ago. Sound like fun? It should. Tubing is one of Belize’s main attractions and if you specify Nohoch Che’en Caves, you can pick and choose from five different caves, though adventurous souls insist on doing them all! Mother Nature has no dress code here-—but be forewarned: you’re likely to get wet.

Cave Tubing at Nohoch Che’en Caves Branch Reserve

Just about every travel writer experiencing Caves Branch River tubing comes to the conclusion that this destination reminds them of sailing in and out of big hunks of Swiss cheese. One minute the sun is shining upon your head, and in the next, you’ve got jungle canopy shading your sail. But the fun kicks in once you slip into a surreal world of pitch black caves once explored and used by Mayans for rituals and secret ceremonies. Fun for all ages, there’s nothing quite like tubing.

Why you have to cave tube in Belize

No matter how many excursions you book during your Belize visit, this one is unique and deserves a place on your must-see list. You’re perfectly safe in the company of other tubing travelers and your guide will make sure you are safe and well-informed by the time your tubing experience is done. No worries about the darkest sections of the caves: everybody will be outfitted with helmet lights.

Where in Belize is it located?

West of Belize’s capital, Belmopan.

When is the best time to go?

While the river rises and falls with seasonal changes, you can cave tube any time you like—just as long as riverbanks don’t rise to levels that can make travel through the caves hazardous.

Best way to get to Caves Branch

From Belmopan, travel George Price Highway an hour to Mile 37. Drive 6 miles to the reserve entrance. If you’d prefer not to drive (a wise move for vacationers), book a tour that includes a professional guide, transport and a picnic lunch. On the other hand, if you come solo, you won’t starve. Grab a bite at the Canopy Café buffet.

Best way to experience the Caves Branch Cave Tubing

Since this cave system is managed by Belize’s Institute of Archaeology, a single tubing experience offers a splendid variety of sensations to tickle your senses. From the soothing ride to the smells and sounds that follow tubers in and out of caves to the quick hike through jungle to the first cave entrance, marvel at the changing colors of the river and occasional elevation bumps loved by kids. Thanks to your helmet light, time spent at the Place of Fright won’t scare you. Can’t get enough thrills? Add a forest canopy zip line run to your itinerary.
