Mopan River Tubing In Belize


The Mopan River, once used to transport chicle and logwood, originates in Guatemala, flowing into Belize to meet with the Macal River and form the Belize River – Belize’s major fresh water source.

Float along cool waters on inflatable inner tubes, pushed by light currents or rapids from the Benque Viejo Del Carmen Town – only a 10-minute drive west of Ka’ana. As you continue floating along the jungle-lined river, your guide will point out various native flora and fauna, including Green Iguanas lounging on Succotz tree branches. Villagers of San Jose Succotz still fish, swim and wash their clothing using flat granite rocks as scrubbing boards in the shallow pools of the river, giving you a glimpse of the local culture in Belize’s westernmost region.
