Belize Adventure Tours

Belize Adventure Tours – Combinations

If  you’ve never experienced the thrill of a Zip-lining Adventure, you have 2 Options in the Cayo District, either of which you can combine with other same-day activities at duPlooy’s.  This is one of the Belize Adventure Tours that can be enjoyed by the entire family

At Caves Branch, you can Zip-line first and then take a hike.  Walk through the forest for about a half hour, toting your innertube in hand. Now hop on your tube and float down the Cave’s Branch River.  Make sure you’re tall enough – 4 ft.  If you’re not there is still a tubing opportunity on the Macal River at duPlooy’s.   See Zip-lining  & Cave Tubing.

At Barton Creek, you can canoe through the cave and afterwards head on out to Calico Jack’s for Zip-lining.  After a picnic lunch you have the option to visit Green Hills Butterfly Ranch or  swim in the cascades of Big Rock Falls in the Mountain Pine Ridge. 

This is one of the many Belize Adveture Tours offered by duPlooy’s.  If you are using our “Create Your Own Vacation” Package, you get choose from a full day tour or one of our combination Tours each of your non-transfer days. Continue reading Belize Adventure Tours

Black Hole Drop

 Not For the Feint of Heart … Belize’s Black Hole Drop is for real adventure-seekers

Rapelling down into the the Black Hole Drop, the rush comes in the first 10 feet and the next 200 feet  provides an unforgettable experience and sights to behold, with the last 100 feet taking you down through the rainforest canopy. Your return hike includes some rock climbing, ladder climbing, and a lot of sweating, This 300 ft. descent into a little-visited sinkhole  “Actun Loch Tunich” is not for everyone, but guaranteed it’s a thrill you’ll never forget. Hike into the foothills of the Maya Mountains to the mouth of this cave where the edge of the sink hole sits over 300 feet above the basin below and  200 feet above the rain forest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin.

Your return hike out of the Black Hole includes some hiking, rock climbing and ladder climbing and a lot of sweating.  When  the day is over give yourself a bit pat on the back and say “I did it!”
