This trip was so much more than I expected for several reasons. We booked it the day before, the weather was a bit tentative, and sometimes you don’t know what you’re going to get with simply doing a “Google” search for local companies. Tourism is a point of pride for the country of Belize, and it is evident. Aaron was our tour guide, and I truly can’t imagine having anyone better. He picked us up promptly from the hotel and during the one-hour drive to the caves, we had a city tour that was insightful and historically relevant. Aaron was funny, friendly, charismatic, and obviously loved being a tour guide. Our group was small, and he gave us a chance to get to know each other as well. We took some fun pictures together and he went out of his way to pilot our experience. Along the way, he detailed what we were seeing in the jungle and made sure everyone was felt comfortable and safe in the environment. The caves were unimaginably stunning. The water was refreshing and relaxing. I highly recommend using this native Belize company and supporting their community. It makes sense way they have 5 Star in their name because they know how to give 5-Star treatment. I’m already looking forward to going back again!

We did not have a game plan when we left the cruise ship on a late tender boat. As we exited the busy port, several people held signs and offered excursions. Our group of 4 women needed the restroom and a powwow. After a short discussion we went back to talk to Miles. He set us up with Kenton and a cave tubing adventure.
Kenton quickly told us that we are now family and to call him Cousin Kenton! He put us at ease about randomly selecting a tour guide we hadn't researched and vetted.
We stopped for a group picture at the Belize sign to start our Un-Belize-able day!
A fun stop at the Rum Factory and off we went to the cave. We had great conversation and laughs along the way.
Cousin Kenton offered to carry my tube to the cave because I might have had a bit of the giggle juice at the rum Factory. We had an extended walk to the cave, so we could learn about the plants and animals. Kenton even lifted me up to hang off of a bone for a photo. Big laughs from our whole group.
The cave was amazing and again, Cousin Kenton did all the work and we just floated through. We saw different formations and the sparkling crystals were beautiful.
There wasn't one minute I would trade of our day...it was all perfect and professional, but fun. You better Belize it!!!!

Best experience ever! Our tour guide Aaron made it an amazing experience. We were in no rush, and he coordinated the trip with a cruise ship. So we got some time to meet him and get the local insights to Belize. Really engaging and informative. When we got underway, his historical knowledge, both of his country and world tying thinking into and molding Belize as it is now was fascinating.The hike in was easy, again his knowledge of the fauna and flora made it great. Other tour participants stopped to hear him. He spotted wild pigs (peckerin?) cross the river as we hiked by.

Then the main event! River tubing to and thru the cave is a once in a lifetime experience. Floating into the mouth of the cave and looking back at the teeth as you descend into the belly of a mountain was indescribable. The stalagmites, the crystals, the cenote out of the dark looks like a slice of the garden of Eden, in a place called hell. Once in a lifetime expirence.

Our guide took the long float back, doubled our time in the water floating and enjoying the butterflies, dragonflies, birds, etc etc.Beautiful. See the guy selling fresh pineapple juice, in the pineapple. (Freeport your self all the rum you want, we went with the virgin juice, was high off the cave.)

Then it all wraps up with a local lunch plate, vegetarian option too and a cold beer.
You can’t go wrong on this trip. But if you want the inside history and enjoy learning about the history and nature go with 5 Star and ask for Aaron !

Tips… This is 100% wet trip.
They rent dry bags, wet shoes etc.
There is a clean bathhouse for changing and doing your business.
Carry in / carry out. Leave nothing behind.
Must use environmental sunscreen, no chemicals in the river.
Tip your guide
Remember you are a guest here

This cave tubing experience was one in a life time. We did a private tour and our guide was Manuel. He is the BEST! He really had a lot of knowledge and history not just about the Cave experience but Belize in total. We enjoyed his tour we specifically requested him for the next day to do our city and Mayan temple tour. He makes sure all of your needs are met, he's funny and he is who you want by your side when you get scared after climbing the temple and was too nervous to come down. He held my hand and scooted down the whole way with me to make it a great experience. LOL

For our port day in Belize, we booked a cave tubing excursion through 5 Star Cave Tubing. It was great! Our guide Aaron, or should I say A-A-ron, was excellent. He shared his first hand experiences, some of the history of Belize, and best of all, he took his time in guiding us through the cave. When other guides were trying to hurry and rush past, he pulled us over to the side and took our own pace. After we were done, we sat down to a great chicken tamale for lunch. Highly recommend Aaron and 5 Star Cave Tubing!!

We stopped in Belize during a cruise looking for a taxi to take us to Kukumba Beach. All cave tubing excursions were canceled due to weather so we were picked up by Kenton Thompson. He was AWESOME!!! Gave us a tour of the city and told us some interesting things about Belize we had no idea about. Dropped us off at our destination with a promised pickup time and was there an hour before our designated pickup time due to rain. He made the trip very memorable for our group of 7 who weren’t really wanting to get off the boat. So glad we did and were well taken care of by Kenton! Highly recommend!!!

I arranged my tour through my Airbnb host Tiana. She gave me the number and the person to contact. Miles was the director of this company. He had Keaton pick me up at my Airbnb and conduct the tour.
Keaton was very knowledgeable about his home town. He drove me past his high school. He shared the history of Belize city and the mentioned all the facts about Belize including the national bird, animal and square size of the country. He told me to lunch (including in the fees) to his favorite local restaurant. Birde Isle. He suggested to try one of the local dishes. Stew chicken with rice and salad.
It was amazing. He continued the tour and continued to give amazing tour.

Idk where to start off but this tour was awesome from talking to the owner way before I even got there. He is super nice and very helpful he helped me book my golf cart rental and activities. He is very patience as well. Our tour guide Kenton Thompson was 100% incredible he really went above and beyond to make sure everything was in place. I really appreciate him for the things he did while we were on the trip. He kept us very safe and made sure we were good. I would recommend this company 100 %. They will not disappoint at all.

The tour guide first off was extremely friendly, engaging and entertaining. He ensured we fully understood his rules which were in place for our safety. He kept with us the entire time providing a detailed description of our experience. Additionally it was only the 2 of us and despite it being such a small number he made sure and gave us his all. The tour within the cave was nothing less than an epic experience and gave us a new appreciation for nature and it’s fragility. After tubing we had a delicious meal, then a feast on a local assortment of mangoes, a tour of the city market, ice cream, a historical tour of the rum factory along with other historic sites and visits to differing neighborhoods. All in all an excellent tour that I will reminisce about for years to come.

Don't hesitate!! If you are in Belize and you are considering cave tubing (you should be!! ) then you have found the company to go with. We chose 5 star based on these reviews and it was the best choice we made on our March 2023 cruise.

We were a group of 10 looking for something fun and different to do.
5 Star arranged for our guide Kenton (Who is the best!!!) to meet us right off the pier. We got into his air conditioned van and off we went. We got a tour of Belize on our way to the cave. Lots of fun facts and things to see. The hour drive goes by faster that you think.

We got there and headed off to the cave. The 20 minute walk, or as Kenton says STROLL, was fun and educational. Kenton chose a path that accommodated all of us.

Hop in the refreshing, not cold, by Michigan standard water, and off to the cave.
Which is Amazing!!! Really cool. When you go with 5 star instead of the Cruise Ship package you get an extra 20 minute route on the water and avoid the giant staircases.

It was Awesome. And they will never let you miss the boat with Kenton driving :)
Little hint I'm sure he knew the tenders take forever when there are 3 boats docked so don't sweat it and grab a beer at the pier.

Great day!!
