Highly recommend Cave Tubing BZ over any other company, including the excursions arranged through the cruiseline. We were met by a representative of the tour company outside Terminal 1 and guided to the bus. Once arriving at the bus we were immediately given a cold bottle of water (nice touch!). On the ride to the rainforest, guides Alfredo and Naidy gave us an introduction to the country, its history and culture. Our first stop was their office pavilion, where we paid our fee ($45 pp). There are bathrooms available and soda and bug spray for sale.
We were then driven to the rainforest. There are bathrooms and changing rooms at the forest welcome center. The tour guides provide a tube, helmet with head torch and a life vest.
Our cave guides were Alfredo and Barry. Both were excellent and went out of their way to give our group the best experience possible. We saw many other tour groups on our trip and none received the high quality of service that was provided by Cave Tubing BZ. Other groups had to carry their own tubes on the 40 minute walk through the rainforest. Most groups were rushed through the forest and were not given additional information on the plants/wildlife. Almost all other groups dropped into the river before us and missed an entire cave.
Once our cave tubing experience was complete, we were driven back to the patio office. Lunch was delicious-- stewed chicken, rice & beans and coleslaw. Unlimited rum punch was provided, you could also get water and soda for non-alcoholic options. We were delivered back to the cruise terminal in time to do a little shopping before getting back on the boat.
You will not find a better deal or better service. This was the best excursion of our cruise.
