It was part of the splendor of one of the greatest ancient civilizations, one of only a few of ancient societies that developed a mathematical and writing system.
Cave tubing is electrifying and rejuvenating, it is is the perfect activity for a refreshing half day where you get to experience the timeless and weightless sensation of an optional few minutes of floating in total darkness.
After the beautiful jungle scenery of the winding Hummingbird Highway and a short jungle walk, you get to spend approximately 2 ½ hours in the “underworld”. The limestone geology and cave archaeology is accompanied by an interesting and wonderful talk by your guide in which ancient Maya use of caves and folklore seem to bring back that ceremonial mystic of ancient Belize in pre-Columbian times when caves were revered holy shrines.
