Cave tubing at Nohoch Che'en

Located with the Nohoch Chen Reserve on the Western Highway, Cave tubing is perhaps one of Belize's most popular adventures!  Start with a jungle trail walk learning about the medicinal and traditional uses of the rain-forest plants and trees.  Explore a dry cave en route to the cave entrance. Splash in from above or gently ease into your tube.... then enter an exciting realm where rivers disappear into the underworld as you float on inner tubes with only your headlamp to lead the way. Glide past entrances from above, filtering mists of jungle light, as you float through underground river caves sparkling with mica-studded stalactites and stalagmites.

Xunantunich Mayan Temple

Xunantunich or Maiden of the Rock is situated on the Western Highway across the river from the village of San Jose Succotz. This major ceremonial center can be reached by ferry daily and it is only 1.5 Kilometer (one mile) from some lovely rapids of the Mopan River. The center is composed of six major plazas surrounded by more than 25 temples and palaces. We highly recommend that you make the steep, but short, 130ft climb to the top of "El Castillo." This vantage point provides a breathtaking, 360 degree, panoramic view over the jungle canopy of the Macal, Mopan and Belize River valleys, as well as a vast area of the Guatemalan Peten District.

Actun Tunichil Muknal - ATM Cave

Located in the heart of the Belizean Rain-forest in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve, this cave was a sacred place to the prehistoric Maya of Belize, who first began to use the entrance during the early classic period. It was not until the late terminal classic period that the Maya traveled deeper into the Cave to conduct their ceremonies.  The cave system consists of a series of chambers, ending in a large Cathedral where sacrificial ceremonies once took place. Here lie those individuals sacrificed to the gods of the underworld. Visitors to this cave have the opportunity to travel into the Maya past and witness a living museum where the human sacrifices and artifacts can be viewed in their original context.
