Private Belize City Adventure: Zipline Tour at Jaguar Paw and Crystal Cave Tubing

Soar like a bird through treetops and float through limestone caves on this private adventure in the tropical jungle of Belize! Zipline across the Jaguar Paw rainforest canopy and rappel down a steep wall of Crystal Cave, and then go cave tubing through ancient Mayan caverns along the Caves Branch River.

If you’ve only got time for one activity, or if you want to do them on different days, you can book separately. If you choose the combo option, your half-day adventure includes a traditional Belizean lunch at the on-site café.


  • Half-day zipline and cave-tubing adventure with a private guide
  • Glide over ancient Mayan caves through the tropical rainforest
  • Rappel down 150 feet along a cave wall
  • Meander over the gentle rapids of Caves Branch River on an inner tube

Private Belize City Adventure: Zipline Tour at Jaguar Paw and Crystal Cave Tubing

River tubing in Belize

Meet your private guide upon pickup from your hotel in Belize City, and enjoy the scenery as you travel by air-conditioned vehicle to the tropical forest at Jaguar Paw, located along the Caves Branch River.

Once you arrive at this 200-acre (80-hectare) rainforest property, your guide will lead you along a short walk through the jungle where giant tropical palms hover above. After putting on your equipment and getting a safety briefing, use a spectacular limestone cliff as your launch pad and leap off into the canopy for a 1-hour zipline experience!

You’ll fly through the forest and get your adrenaline pumping as you zoom 500 feet (152 meters) across a series of ziplines for about an hour. Enjoy a bird's-eye view above Crystal Cave, crossing the ceremonial cavern once used by the ancient Mayans. Your guide will help you safely descend 150 feet (45 meters) to the forest floor along the side of the cave – the longest rappel in Belize.

Then, it's time to take to the water! Lie back in your tube and relax as you feel the cool rush of the currents along the Caves Branch River. Float down small rapids through the caves, where your guide will point out stalactites and other crystal-like cave formations that drip from the high walls – an awe-inspiring sight!

Follow your guide through the chamber of Crystal Cave, emerging to find more crystalline structures such as a sparkling column that shimmers like a frozen waterfall. Your guide will reveal hidden pottery used by the ancient Maya, dating back more than 1,000 years.

Then, unwind at the on-site café and enjoy a traditional Belizean meal before return transport by private vehicle to your hotel.

Tour Options:
If you’d prefer not to do all activities in one tour, you can book one or the other – either ziplining and rappelling or cave tubing – separately.

I had a fantastic time on this tour. I was picked up by a local who drove me out1 hour to the location of activities. Very nice man named Sante and we chatted up the whole way. Very professional tour once I got there. I got a private one on one cave tubing with Hilario while all else around me were from cruise ships and in large groups of 8 or more. Then off to zip lining where I zipped on 5 lines. That was really exciting. They did not have the repelling for whatever reason but I was ok with that. Instead they offered me a lunch of chicken rice and beans-a local favorite and it was delicious. I would highly recommend this tour!

Excellent tour, our guide for ziplining Sheldon was very helpful and made us both comfortable with our fist time ziplining. The only down side is the road to get there, it is a ride in itself, but we found that to be true anytime we were off the highway in Belize.

My Tour was incredible all because of my Guide Oscar! He was the absolute best!! Extremely knowledgable and a great person to spend the day with. Thank you Oscar

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

Highly recommended, our personal tour guide Ken was very informative and accomodating. We decided last minute we didnt want to do the Zipline, and we wanted to see the Xunantunich ruins and cave tubing. Ken was very accommodating at no additional charges.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2013

Not our first trip to Belize but this trip was amazing . Zipline was our first but not last and the cave tubing was awesome!! It was just the guide and my husband and I. It was so personal thanks to our shuttle driver Juan Reyes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2013

Loved it! My first time "zipping" and five lines wasn't enough. Entire Chukka crew and entire process for booking adventure was super easy and convenient - highlight of my trip, can't wait to do it again.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2014

It is pretty awesome to have a private tour. My tour guide, Oscar, was very friendly, very knowledgable and clearly loved doing what he did. The zip-lining part of the tour was a little on the short side, but it was still really enjoyable and beautiful. The cave-tubing was out of this world... or deep inside of it. It was quite the learning experience to enter the sacred Mayan caves and experience the geology and history first hand.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2014

An exciting day to be sure, but not exactly as advertised. Lunch was not provided for me, and the zip line portion of the experience was about 20 minutes, not over 1 hour as described. Crystal caves were really interesting.
