It’s natural why so many couples are choosing Belize for their weddings and honeymoons. The Central American nation has been centering their tourism information with an argument of obvious appeal: the gorgeous white beaches of Belize’s coast, the sandy cayes, and the expansive and bright blue Caribbean extending into forever. But for more adventurous couples, there’s a whole world of thrilling opportunities on the other side of the country.
The Cayo District is effectively the rugged frontier of Belize, and that translates into an expansive and varied playground for couples who like a little adrenaline with their honeymoon. The people behind Dark Night Cave Tubing Adventures know why people come to visit the Cayo District because they’re working at Dark Night for that very same reason. And they have plenty of adventures you can choose from.
- Couples looking for something a little more relaxed will find the lazy two hour tour of tubing or rafting down the Sibun River to be just to their liking. The river is notorious for the spider and howler monkeys that live along its banks.
- If you’re the type of people who love getting scared over ghost stories, there’s no better thrill than the ceremonial cave tour. While it might not have the direct shock of a haunted house, these deep underground caves were once the site for human sacrifices during the height of the Maya Empire. Human remains are still down there.
- Tubing is a nice and lazy way to explore underground caves, but Dark Night Cave Tubing’s zip line adventures offer a sharp counterpoint. You’ll get the chance to see the artifacts remaining in the ceremonial caves before going barreling 1,400 feet across a steep canyon. Best of all, you don’t even have to get wet to see everything there.
Dark Night Cave Tubing is serious about giving you the trip you want. You can mix and match the different tour options however you want to create an experience that’s catered to your unique relationship. Belize has a lot to offer, but too few people end up only seeing the beaches. Dark Night Cave Tubing is worth the visit, and the yawning caves on their property are every bit as awe-inspiring as the Belize Barrier Reef or the Great Blue Hole. For a certain breed of couple, the Cayo District is the idyllic honeymoon spot. The fact that you can also reach some stunning beaches and islands will just be icing on the cake.
