Zip Lining in Belize
Belize Zip line adventures are invigorating with dramatic landscapes and a viewpoint you won’t see anywhere else in the country. It is like flying over and through the jungle. As you glide from tree to tree, you will experience Belize from a bird’s eye view of the scenery and jungle, which cannot be witnessed on the ground. The Belizean rainforest’s canopy demonstrates an impressive array of life and diversity. Up there, 150+ feet above the ground, life thrives in the sunshine and many animals spend their whole lives living in the treetops. Some zip lines run longer than others but all deliver the same extraordinary experience while crisscrossing over the verdant rainforest and river.
Proclaimed to be one of the best activities Belize has to offer, you start off with a safety briefing and will then be fitted and securely strapped in a harness that is connected to a cable by your platform directors and expert guides. Once you are securely strapped into a harness and fastened to a steel cable, you will then be shown the proper zip lining method before leaping off the edge and gliding toward your next target. Dwarfed by towering cohune palms, you will go on a short hike on a winding path through the dense jungle and arrive at a limestone bluff, the launchpad of your zip line adventure. You will start with an awe-inspiring zip line, feeling the charge as you zoom 600 feet across the jungle. This is only the beginning! Your next cross carries you on an unequaled 750 feet zip across the jungle. Gaze down onto thick flora that was once the Mayan hunting territory and origin of most of their everyday day needs. Your adrenaline will be pumping and anticipation high, it’s time to switch gears from harness to life vest, as the second leg of your quest begins.
BELIZE ZIP LINE ADVENTURES
Cave Tubing and Zip Lining Adventure
Why not make it a full day of adventure? You are already in the jungle so it is a quick trip to the ziplining expedition and the combination of cave tubing and zip lining in one day makes for some amazing stories to tell.
Your exciting day starts with a boat ride to the mainland and up the Belize River. As you ride up the river, you may encounter jungle creatures such as iguanas, snakes, crocodiles & manatees as you are served a continental breakfast. You then board a private, air-conditioned bus & drive to Caves Branch. Once there, you get to zipline through eight different levels in the jungle. Next, you will have lunch, after which you go to the caves. There, you will put on a head lamp, slide into your inner tube and leisurely float through the cave system.
