Crystal Cave Amazing Tubing! Jan 05, 2016
We went to the Crystal Cave Tubing tour as part of our on shore excursion from the NCL.

Our tourguides Shana and Captain Kirk were phenomenal. After they picked us up in Belize City, we drove about 40 minutes on the Western Highway and then took a quick uphill bus ride to the entrance to the cave. We were outfitted with water jackets and headlights and helmets and walked to the opening of the cave. This area is in the wilderness, about a mile from the natural jaguar preserve -- have no fear! we so no jaguars!

What was unique about this place is the nice area to drop off the things we didn't want to get wet and pick up water shoes and bug repellent (if needed). Then we got our green innertubes and dropped into the water. Shana called it "shockingly refreshing", but with the air temp in the 80's, the cave temperature was quite comfortable. We floated along, completely mesmerized by the stalactites and stalagmites that were made of red, orange, white and sparkling tones.

Shana was very knowledgeable about the history of the ceremonies in this cave, and showed us through the areas where the Mayas had once roamed with torches and canoes.

At the end of the cave (which goes more than a mile underground, I jumped off the inner tube and swam across to the exit from the cave. The cave is open, with very high vaulted ceilings, so if you have claustrophobia, this is not a problem here.

Overall, Chukka adventures are a great group of guides who treated us well, and shared a lot of beautiful history of Belize and the Mayan cultures.

I would recommend this tour, and would do it again in a heartbeat.
