Best excursion in Belize!

What a great experience and so very beautiful!! Jeremy and Abner were great tour guides and made this such an enjoyable experience!! They were very helpful with the kayaks and making sure we were all safe and kayaking correctly. They offered to let us buy food before we left to eat on the road, and the food was great! They were very informative about the caves and the area we were in and answered any and all questions that we had! I loved this excursion and would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone! The caves were beautiful and we were even able to get out at some point and enjoy the water and take more pictures!! I am so thankful for these guys and the tour!! Definitely would recommend this to everyone!!

We had a great time cave kayaking with Fabulos & Abner. They were great tour guides and we learned alot about the country & areas that we toured. It was such a beautiful cave and river surrounded by the jungle. I saw my first cashew tree and mahogany tree. I definitely recommend this tour

Best Belize Cruise Excursion

In consideration of time if you are on a cruise, you will be taking a smaller boat to the port. It takes about 25 mins to the port, depending where your cruise ship docks. Thus, you want to be one of the first one to aboard these small boats. Cruise ship and Belize have different times. Tips: -Keep a watch on boat time -Keep your phone on Belize time -Bring waterproof phone lanyard -Bring water shoes When you purchase the tour, the tour departs on Belize time. Departure of the tour was 09:00AM (Belize time). It is about 1.5 hour drive to the cave resort. On our way there, our tour guide gave us a city tour. The tour guide asked us if we wanted to preorder lunch food from there. On this day it was: rice and beans made with coconut milk, coleslaw, chicken stew + drink for $10USD. At the camp, they had restrooms, changing areas, and merchants selling souvenirs and water related items. Then, you take about a 30 min walk to the river and from there on it’s a beautiful memorable experience that’s worth the commute. Our tour guide made sure we were back 45 min before the last small boat left to the ship so we got back to the port at 03:45 PM (Boat time). Overall for the price and the experience, this tour is well worth it and I would recommend going with this company. Also, I recommend the Kayak experience it’s more enjoyable to have control of where you’re going. My family and I are glad we did. We even added my dad once we got there and paid in cash, because he decided to join us last minute. It’s was $5 extra so if you can book prior.

Fantastic adventure! Everyone was courteous and helpful. Would recommend it for all ages! Cave was magnificent and the jungle walk although a little longer than I imagined, was interesting and enjoyable. A MUST do when visiting the area.

Kayaking was the way to go

Kayaking was the way to make the most of this unique experience/location. We were able to enter the cave and see more than those in tubes. Our guide was informative, fun, articulate, safe. Wouldn't know what more to ask for.

We got off the ship very early and had to wait for the others that had booked this tour. I was getting very impatient but the wait was worth it! The transportation to the archeological site was clean and comfortable. The driver (Eddie) was very competent and the lovely lady (Sharon) that gave the commentary during the drive was fantastic. She and Eddie and Lupe did a great job explaining what would happen and their expectations of us. We had a great time and it was a first rate experience. We made it back to the ship in plenty of time. We have done the cave-tubing before but this was a better experience by far and I would highly recommend them!

Great day Kayaking!

VIV did a great job with our excursion. The kayaking was easier than I expected. We got to go further in the caves than the tubers. There was a lot of tubes and they did well to navigate through them. Be ready to get wet. You will walk through 3 different rivers to get to your kayaks. I would recommend the trip and the guides did a good job explaining things about their country on the ride to the site.
