Top Adventures in Western Belize include

Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve

This forest reserve is a 300-square mile area where you will find a scenic combination of cool pine forest, tumbling waterfalls, lush river valleys, and numerous cave formations. During this tour you will visit a variety of places including the Rio Frio Cave, Rio on Pools, Big Rock Falls, and the breathtaking 1,000 Foot Falls.

Waterfall Caves Expedition at Caves Branch

Begin your journey with a 45-minute hike where you will enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle before arriving at Caves Branch. Once inside, you’ll pass through a maze of tiny and tight spaces and arrive at the foot of the waterfalls. Climb and conquer these natural formations using a rappel rope and dive right into these invigorating cascades.

Barton Creek Cave

Flowing from a giant crack in a mountain, this cave offers an adventure into the ancient Maya past. Glide through the darkness in a canoe in crystal clear waters into a mystifying world of marvelous natural formations. Here you will witness burial grounds, ceremonial pottery, and hear the stories of ancient people that remain as an eternal testimonial.

Jaguar Paw Cave Tubing

Learn about flora and fauna as your guide leads you on a 30-40 minute hike along a nature trail on your way to the Underworld— known by the Maya as ‘Xibalba.’ Strap on your headlamp, sit on your inner tube, and have a refreshing ride down this wonderful cave system where you’ll be mesmerized by natural wonders including stalactites, stalagmites and other rock formations. This tour is amazing fun for adults and kids alike!

St. Herman’s Cave and Blue Hole National Park

St. Herman’s Cave showcases huge caverns and ceremonial chambers containing artifacts. After this “Underworld” experience, cool off at the Blue Hole and enjoy the bliss of the Belizean surroundings.
