The drive to Xunantunich is approximately 2 hours, and parts of the journey may be on bumpy roads. The ferry crossing is a 5 minute journey, on a manually swung ferry.  Sit back, relax and enjoy a scenic drive to the jungle. Along the way, your guide will share a brief history of Belize, its people and culture on an approximately 1½ hour drive through savannas and quaint villages to your destination at the Jaguar Jungle Camp. 

Upon arrival, your river guides will kit you out with a helmet, headlight and life jacket. Following a safety briefing there’s a 25 minute nature walk down to the clear waters of the Caves Branch River. Jump into your river tube and feel the excitement as part of a group, you float into mysterious limestone archways beckoning you into the mouth of centuries old caves that hold untold stories of Mayan rituals. Explore the many awe-inspiring formations that adorn these caves and learn about the flora and fauna that surrounds them.

Enjoy the refreshing cool water as it takes you down small rapids, letting the meandering currents guide you where they will. Just relax and sit back in your tube, immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the jungle, and let go as your guide leads you through the currents that continue to carve and shape these natural wonders. 

Afterwards, make your way out the river and up to the Bushcamp Café where you’ll enjoy a well-deserved typical Belizean lunch.
