WOW what a great arrangement Erik has put together!! From a one room space 8X15 Erik seems to manage all the tours, walk the streets meeting people, selling the tours, delivering breakfast and greeting you upon return. I'm really impressed with this guys spirit and determination to provide great personal service in a very competitive market space.
We did the 1 day crash course of Ruins, Zip line and cave tubing. If your looking for slow or leisure pace don't try all 3 in one day. As divers we always have one down day before flying home.
To keep it short, basically our situation was ideal, fly to mainland where Erik's brother David was our guide. Now David is a man on a mission, we literality drove across the entire country of Belize to reach the ruins where you are 1/2 mile from Guatemala. The Ruins are awesome to see and the hand crank bridge crossing is something right out of the 1950's. Oh did I mention the road side stop at the fruit stand? Anyhow you'll see, now on to the zip lines.
Back across the country and than onto a roadway that test man, machine and your ability to not spill ! Hitting the zip line early afternoon was grate, no lines, we got harnessed and right on to the first station. Did I mention the climb to each zip station, small price to pay for the thrill. Lines were good, fast and the guys gave us some leeway to have some fun ie. 360 spins........lol.
Next on to cave tubing, with David in full stride we hiked about a mile to the launch point. Water was cool and refreshing after that little hike. FYI, the path is stone, shoes with a thicker sole is a must. Wearing water shoes with the thin soles was not a pleasant walk.
The cave is really cool, David is well versed in the history, special points and local pants and trees. So after a quick change were back on the highway trying to make the last plane out at 5:30, on a Friday, going through downtown Belize city. I'm happy to say David got us there with 15min to spare. This is a full day trip, you will be on the move all day.
Things I didn't get to talk about
Lunch, nice spot, local food....great choice David.
Speed Bumps...........no need for radar
Passing is option at any time.
Erik on the island, David on the land.......they will take good care of you.
