Hey, Glenn. I remember one of the first times I posted on this board and someone told me to go search myself. Not the most helpful answer in the world, plus it assumes the questioner is not smart enough to figure that one out him/herself.

I've gone with Searious Adventures and the trip was very fun. Usually tubing is combined with something else, but we weren't interested in the zoo or other offerings, so our guide took us further into the jungle and we went through several additional caves. Seaduced and Tuff n Nuff, as well as otheres, also offer tours. You can check around once you are on the island, prices are pretty much the same everywhere so it just depends on what outfit makes you feel most comfortable. Certainly a worthwhile trip.

I agree with law as far as telling posters to do a search. Give them some info and then suggest a search to help them find more.

That aside, I'm always surprised to find people so charged up about the cave tubing trips. I didn't think it was all that and sure didn't think it was worth the price. OK, yes, I enjoyed the zoo, though it was raining heavily and yes, I did find the jungle around Jaguar Paw very beautiful. So, while it was a good day, I just didn't think it was worth all that money. To each their own, I guess.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

personally, i LOVE the tubing thru the caves. but i don't do anything else on the days i tube so maybe it's a little more relaxed that way...

I dunno Marty. Maybe if a person was staying some place close already, then the price isn't too bad. But for a family of four to pay $600+/- to go to the zoo and tube through some caves, I just don't see it. Sorry.

I thought it was a big bite for one person, can't imagine what it must be like for a family.

Also, I'd been through ATM cave before I went tubing. I think that flavored it for me. If a person wants to see cave(s), then I think ATM is the place to spend the money.

Like I said, to each their own, I guess.

What is ATM??? We were also planning on tubbing trip. But I wasn't sure if it's worth the money.

Go tubing, go to the zoo. Do these trips on days when there are NO cruise ships in port in Belize City. The experience is worth it.

Hey Glenn, keep searching, go back to directory, [URL= search will show lots of different experiences and options and I assumed nothing about your ability to figure that out!

But, then again, to each their own, I guess. :rolleyes: laugh

I agree the tubing was fun but not extraordinary. I coupled it with Xunantunich and that made it all more worth while and easier on the wallet.

Great advice on avoiding the cruises. Somebody posted a webiste at one time that allowed you to see the cruise excursion scheudle in order to avoid it. Great idea!

I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.
