Is cave tubing or cave exploring possible without a tour?

My 10 year old and I will be in Belize next month. We will rent a car in BC, and head out toward San Ignacio. We travel a lot, and always rent a car--we prefer the flexibility to see places at our own pace, without participating in organized tours (it's also usually much cheaper). Can we do this at ATM or cave tubing, or is a tour (departing from San Ignacio) required? Thanks in advance!

You'd need a guide in any event but I've read you can arrange a guide for tubing on the spot. You could arrange to meet your ATM guide nearer the cave than San Ignacio; I don't think it would save you any money, though. You can't enter the cave without a guide from 1 of the recognized agencies.
