There are certain activities that you may find in Belize just like you may in other countries of Central America, like Zipriding
, or Horseback riding
, to mention some.
But there is a handful Outdoor Activities that are really unique to this particular country, and turn out to be 'a must' during your visit.
The most popular Belizian Outdoor Activity is Cave Tubing
, an adventure that starts with a jungle trail hike and then continues with floating on inner tubes that flow through soft river currents that are part of an underground cave system made of crystalline formations, stalagmites and stalactites.
Head-light equipped helmets allow you to enjoy this floating ride while you go through a series of varied sized caves that alternate with open-aired jungle sights.
Should you rather remain dry while admiring these natural formations, we recommend the Barton Creek Cave Tour to enjoy a self paddled canoe ride equipped with high-powered lights that takes you through dazzling cave systems that will leave you in awe while passing by Mayan artifacts secretly tucked away in overhead alcoves made in the glistening crystalline rock formations.
Cave Tubing Tours can be added to your vacation package when you select hotel stays in San Ignacio or Mountain Pine Ridge.
If you are staying in Placencia, Hopkins or even Ambergris Caye, be ready to pay a premium for your Cave Tubing Tour because of the transportation distance and time required to arrive to the tour starting point.
Another Belizian Outdoor Adventure not-to-be-missed is the exploration of Mayan Ruins
that are spread out all over the country.
Last but not least, diving and snorkeling
in Belize are no common business, as only in this country you will find the largest reef in the American Continent, the Belize Barrier Reef
, second only to the largest reef in the world, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
