Not only is this a unqiue way to experience a cave, it's also lots of fun and a great soft-adventure option. After being outfitted with the necessary equipment, begin the one mile trek through sub-tropical trails and wade across a shallow portion of the river before reaching a stunning lagoon surrounded by steep limestone walls. Along the way, your guide will point out various exotic flora and fauna native to Belize.
Float along the cool waters illuminated by your headlamp, gently pushed by a current or led by your guide into two large chambers - both impressive sanctuaries used by the Mayas for sacrificial rituals. Plunge into darkness and listen to the sounds of the cascading waterfalls and bubbling rapids. Upon exiting the caves, continue floating along the jungle-lined river for approximately thirty minutes before returning to the starting point.
