This excursion starts with air-conditioned transportation into the jungle, with a guide giving you an introduction to the history, culture and people of Belize. The drive takes you through savannas and quaint villages on your way to Jaguar Jungle Camp.
Upon arrival, trained staff will fit you with your harness and give you a safety briefing before you start your zipline adventure. You’ll take a short winding trail through thick jungle, where the towering cohune palms dwarf you, to a limestone cliff that is your launching pad to zipline. Feel the rush as you fly 500 feet across the jungle with a bird’s eye view of a cavernous opening to one of the Mayan’s ancient ceremonial caves. Your next traverse takes you to an unrivalled 700 feet across the jungle. Don’t forget to look down onto dense flora that used to be the Mayan hunting ground and source of their daily needs. With your adrenaline pumping and anticipation running high, you’ll switch gears from harness to life vests as the second leg of your quest begins, putting you up close and personal to the environment of the crystal caves phenomenon. On a tube ride you float through a chamber where high ceilings and a stalactite-lined wall provide the sensation of being in a grand cathedral with a mighty pipe organ welcoming you into a sacred place. Marvel at the crystal-encrusted cave formations that are simply dazzling, as you meander up the river.
You’ll leave your tube and walk inside the crystal chamber to explore the sacred underworld of the Mayans. Notice the pottery used by the Maya in ancient sacrificial ceremonies, dating back to 300 to 900 AD. Your path takes you through a tiny passage where you’ll find yourself in front of a frozen waterfall column and glittering rim stone dam that is simple amazing. Once back on your tube, you’ll make your way to an underground lagoon bordered by a mini waterfall. This signals the end of your subterranean adventure. You’ll walk back to base camp where you’ll have a chance to change clothes and shop for souvenirs of this once-in-a-lifetime experience before your transportation takes you back to the pier.
