Float Through Caves Branch and Have Fun While Learning!

Feel like you are in a real-life Indiana Jones movie as you float back in time through prehistoric caves filled with ancient crystal formations and even human artifacts from centuries past. Enjoy a physically relaxing, mentally/visually exciting, trip along a gentle flowing jungle river as you tube in and out of various cave passageways in the Caves Branch river system at the Nohoch Che’en Caves Branch Archaeological Reserve.

Learn about the geology and ancient history of the limestone cave system, the Mayan culture and the indigenous inhabitants of the area who used the caves for ceremonial purposes for thousands of years – all while having fun on the tube!
