Belize Cave Tubing
We go ashore in boats (tenders) that drive out to pick up passengers. Belize used to be British Honduras until the name changed in 1983 and it became known as Belize.
Belize has the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world.
We're on the Norewgian Sun for a week.
We decide to tube the Belize caves at the suggestion of friends.
After an hour bus ride, we carry the tubes 30 minutes though a rain forest to the launch point.
They give us headlamps and life jackets.
It's an interesting excursion. We get chicken tamales wrapped in banana leaves for lunch.
The Mayans thought that you had to go underground to eight levels of hell before rising though 30 levels of heave....that's what our guide said anyway...
The tubes are tied together for the trip.
In places, the water is only six inches deep....you have to keep all your parts high...
