- Bush Camp Café, refreshment stop
What we will do
- We leave by coach from the port and we very quickly go through Belize city to proceed in the direction of the hinterland of the country, going through small villages and picturesque country roads until we reach Jaguar Paw Jungle Camp. Here we meet our local instructor who provides us with some safety information and the equipment we need for the excursion. We proceed on foot to Caves Branch River and hop on to our inflated tube. We let the current take us down the river which is flanked by tamarind trees up to the entrance to a network of underground caves. In the midst of stalactites and stalagmites we can admire some marvellous natural rock formations that are associated with ancient rituals of the Maya , who considered these caves to be a holy site inhabited by the gods.
- At the end of our adventure we are off to Bush Camp Café where we can restore our energies with a snack and a cold drink.
