Your cave tubing tour will start with a 30
minute hike through well kept and easy to traverse nature trails, which
take you through two small dry caves with gorgeous stalactite and stalagmite formations and awesome crystal curtains. The flora of the rainforest is typical of a well preserved
tropical broadleaf eco-system, with many famous hardwoods, medicinal plants, and
some farming produce such as guava, mamei, pineapple, sugarcane, mango, avocado,
and coconut trees.
As you reach the river system of the Sibun Caves Branch, enjoy a cool splash in
this undisturbed, unpolluted spring and rain fed waterway which punched a cavernous
cave system through the hills of the Sibun Range during the early cretaceous period
– over 100 million years ago! But there is more to this system than meets the eye. The advent of the famous Maya Civilization to this area known as Meso-America,
meant the use of the caves as an earthly journey through the mythological underworld
of the Maya faith – and confrontation with the nine dark lords who governed the
nine levels of that world.
As you float down the river, you will experience the wonder of animal and bird-shaped
stalactite formations once held sacred by those Mayan shamans, so be sure to bring along a waterproof camera, even a disposable one, with a flash unit.
At the end of your cave tubing journey through this astounding cave system, you will float out
into the open, under the canopy of the majestically tall trees
lining the riverbanks, until you end up right back where you started walking.
This makes for an easy and totally enjoyable circuit, and allows you the opportunity
to relax and reflect after your adventure.
Included in your tour: A/C van or bus with cellular phones for constant contact,
cold bottled water, all professional cave tubing and safety equipment, highly trained
guides, river safety staff, security for personal items, modern bathrooms, park
entrance fees, showers
and changing rooms provided for you at the site.
Come cave tubing with Major Tom, Minor Tom and their veteran guides!
