Along with a few others on our cruise, we booked a cave-tubing excursion through Jaguar Paw resort. This was a fabulous experience.

We were a total of 8 people and a guide, Miguel. Upon arrival at the resort, we were given our life vests and tubes. The outing began with a group photo at the river cave, followed by a "Fording" of the river (refreshing!). We walked the jungle trail for about 45 minutes. Miguel explained many things about the jungle during our walk, stopping often for photos and pointing out plants and trees. Without stopping, this would have been a 20 minute walk. The entire time we did not see any other people.

We entered the caves branch river at a clearing between two caves. We floated downstream as Miguel pointed out some things in the caves. Upon reaching the end of this long cave, we could see the multitudes from the ship's shore excusions and larger commercial operators entering the river. Miguel made sure we were all hooked together and we continued into the next cave, where a small section of rapids added to the adventure.

After a total of about 90 minutes in the river we were back to the point we had forded the river. Out we went and less than 100 yards later we were back at Jaguar Paw. Clean places to change into dry clothes and restrooms are provided. We enjoyed a great Belizian lunch at the resort followed by a tour of the facilities and the butterfly nursery.

Make sure you bring a camera! If you don't have a digital waterproof one, bring the normal one. The tour guide will have a "Dry bag" to keep it in during the actual tubing. Also, water shoes are a must, but if you don't have them with you they will rent them for $3.00.

We went on the Jaguar Paw Zoo and Cave Tubing adventure in April as a day excursion. We were sailing on Carnival Pride and arranged the excursion on our own prior to the trip. It was absolutely incredible! We were picked up just a short walk from the pier and driven to the Zoo. What an amazing place! The animals come right up to the fence for pictures, there was a great variety, and the tropical rainforest environment made it almost seem like you were in the real thing, not a Zoo. Then we drove to the Caves to go Tubing. Because Jaguar Paw owns the resort, you get to go all the way up to the trail, rather than having to walk from the entrance of the Park. Our guide was terrific, and the experience was really incredible. We would definitely do this excursion again. Thanks, Jaguar Paw.

Booked the zoo, zipline, and cave tubing directly through Jaguar Paw. A rep picked us up at the municipal airport (came from Ambergris Caye) and took us to the zoo, then zipline, then lunch at Jauguar Paw,and then cave tubing.Jaguar Paw handled everything and got us back to our plane right on time.This was the best price and was perfectly run. We went on a Monday (no cruise ships) and had a great day. Thank you,

We booked a day tour to Jaguar Paw for cave tubing and zip lining. After flying to the mainland at 8am and being left at the airport for over an hour, the airline personnel called Jaguar Paw to verify a ride was coming and were told it was on the way. 40 minutes later they called again and were again told a ride was almost there. Over 3 hours after our arrival at the airport a persistant Tropic Air employee called again and insisted they send a driver to pick us up as promised. We arrived at the resort after noon, had a hurried lunch, a shortened cave tubing tour and did get to zip line with no waiting since they were on the verge of closing for the day. That evening we did get a call from the owner who apologized for the mix up and offered us a repeat the next day but as with most vacationers we had plans for each day. She then said she felt terrible and would like to do something for us and said she would send us t-shirts. Well, we thought - maybe they do care. Over a month later and nothing ever arrived. It appears that the resort needs to make a management overhaul and show some true concern about their customer service. While their guides are great, we would not recommend taking the chance of booking a day with them since most people on vacation do not have the time to do a repeat if they cannot deliver the first time. You do not have to book thru this resort to do intertubing!

We had a wonderful time, there were 8 of us, ranging from ages 10 to 67years old! We all zip lined, which was incredible. We all felt very safe, the guides were all very helpful and confident. But the mosquitoes were HUGE, so bring good bug spray. We didn’t apply enough bug spray and we all had some pretty huge bug bites!

Cave tubing was cool; we did only the 3 caves which took 1 hour from the hike up to the caves from floating down the river. Our guide (forgive me I forgot his name) was so very intelligent about the native plants and trees in the jungle. He explained how to survive in the jungle and how medicine is still being produced out of the jungle plants. In our opinion, 3 caves were just fine; it’s a very slow float. The caves are beautiful and amazing to see, but I wouldn’t do it again. Its one of those things,” been there, done that" won’t do it again.

At the end of our tour we were taken to the main lobby/restaurant and given a Belizean lunch; rice, bean, chicken and coleslaw. Excellent food, And if you like HOT sauce, ask for the homemade salsa....wow, its smoking hot.
