Cave Tubing at Cave Branch “Nohoch Che’en” (Better know as Jaguar Paw).
Cave tubing at Caves Branch consist of a short walk in the Rain forest for about 30 minutes, until you arrive at the cave entrance. The Rain Forest walk to the cave offer a great chance to experience and learn about the natural environment.
Once at the cave entrance, your guide will do a short introduction of the cave and what to expect while tubing. During your journey down stream in the cave system, you will see awesome Karst windows and spectacular natural formations that will take you breath away. Tubing through the Cave Branch cave system, you will float your way back in time to when the ancient Mayas use these caves for ceremonial activities.
Upon exiting the cave, you will river tube for about 15 minutes back to where you first started the Rain Forest walk.
Cave Tubing at St. Herman’s Caves
Cave Tubing at St. Herman’s Caves consist of a 10 minute walk from the park to the cave entrance. As you make you way to the caves, you will bear witness to pristine rain forest (as it was from the time of the Mayas), and many different tropical birds.
At the entrance, your guide will give an introduction about the cave and what to expect while cave tubing. As you descend in the cave, you will be overwhelmed with the beauty and the geological features that are found within the cave system. While inside the cave, you will be walking for about 10 minutes upstream before starting the 2 hour tube float in the cave. Tubing through the cave reveals the hidden beauty that is found inside these mystical places, which was once sacred to the Ancient Mayas.
At the end of tubing, you will walk back up stream. There you get a chance to see the cave and its spectacular formations from a closer stand point, this continues all the way to the cave entrance.
