Belize Cave & Jungle Packages
Did you know that Belize is home to the largest cave system in all of Central America?
Millions of years ago seeping rainwater and underground rivers began etching through soft bedrock and outcrops. What started as just a few little drops slowly became a trickle, which turned into underground rivers, designing these artistic, mysterious places that make up much of the country's landmass. Over 60% of Belize is covered by pristine/lush rainforest much of which is unexplored; and beneath the surface can be found some of the most spectacular and extensive cave systems on the planet.
Belize is filled with rugged and breathtaking natural beauty. The caves and jungles of this Central American country, both infused with the rich Mayan history of Belize, offer much to those seeking adventures on the mainland. Jungle and rainforest covers most of Belize with densely tangled plants and trees that produce mahogany, cedar, and logwood.
The jungle also boasts wildlife reserves and sanctuaries, rivers, herbal trails, massive Mayan ruins and ancient pyramids that are still among the tallest structures in the country today and, of course, subterranean caves.
Belize is home to the largest network of rainforest limestone caves in the Americas. Adorned with stunning stalactites and stalagmites, visitors to these caves can see pigment less fish, bats, symbranchid eels, whip scorpions, and other small creatures. These caves also tell the history of Belize and the Maya religion and culture. Caves were used as ceremonial sites by the Maya, and evidence of their activities can often be found for substantial distances inside these caves. Relics, principally in the form of shards of pottery, are very common.
