my husband & i are going to belize in oct and we're staying on ambergris caye the first 5 nites then we want to travel to the western belize area and see the jungle & do the ian anderson cave tubing...does anyone know where to stay? we can't find much info on the cave tubing tours! does anbody have any info on this? some websites say all day tour and some include this with other tours like belize zoo. if it is a 7 or 8 mile float then it must take all day and that is what we want.
(we have a zoo here) can someone who has been there give us some pointers? CAT in Texas

There are different cave tubing tours, so thats why you get differeing information on how long they last, etc.

I know SeaDuced by Belize is doing them, // , and check with others at: // to see if they also do the tour....

you boat over to the mainland from san pedro, then a tour guide from the cave tubing spot takes over from there..

Thanks for the tip, but these sites did not
have much info. either. Guess we will just
need to contact one of the tour agencies to
find out the different options. The tube float that we would like to try is mentioned on website
but it doesnt exactly mention how to book it.

Texas Cat,
Another Texan here. We did the jungle thing and stayed at a place called duPlooy's. It wasn't to far from San Ignacio, and they had drivers that would take you there to shop or have dinner etc. DuPlooy's has tours that they will set up and book for you. If you're a guest, they take care of all the details. A guide, a sack lunch if you need one, transportation, etc. A top notch facility and super nice people. They had several cave tours on their list of things to do. The prices seemed reasonable to me as well. The food there is to die for. The lodgings were fantastic, and if you like plants etc. the botanical gardens on the grounds were outstanding. The resort sits right on the Macal River, so you can take a canoe from there to San Ignacio any time you want. They will pick you up. The swimming in the river was "other worldly" and a very peaceful experience. I suggest looking it up on the net. They have quite a bit of information.

Debbie, did you rent a car at the aiport to get to DuPlooy, or do they have a service that can pickup and return visitors to the aiport?

DuPlooy's had a car and driver waiting for us at the airport. He had a little sign with our names on it. Really kind of nice to land in a foreign country and have a stranger looking for you. He was so nice. He stopped at the grocery store for us. We were so hot and thirsty. Once into the countryside, he also stopped at some quaint little places for "potty breaks", snacks, curios, and some of the local people on the side of the road selling their wares. I guess it took about 2 hours to get to duPlooy's. Beautiful drive through the hills.

Thanks for all of the tips! I also finally found a site that offers the cave tubing trip that we were looking for at
It says that it can't be done during high water, so we will still have to play it by ear. I understand that October is rain/skeeter season in Belize and that is when we are going. Hopefully we will have a few pretty days anyway and can't wait to be there. If we don't get to do the tubing then there seems to be plenty of other things to do. Some of the other trips on this site seem interesting as well.....
Until next time, bye yall!!!

Texas Cat, we did the Barton Creek Cave Tour with David's Adventure Tours in San Ignacio. David charged $50Bz. The prices on that Maya site seems steep. David's site is all his prices are listed. Enjoy your holiday!
