About this trip

For those looking  for an exciting day full of activities, this tour takes you from your  hotel/resort in San Ignacio Town  to the top of  the El Castillo, to floating in one of Xibalba’s gateways at Nohoch Che'en caves aka ''Jaguar paw''. 

You will be Exploring & climbing Xunantunich’s structures, learning about the Maya civilization's imprint in our country,  admiring beautiful landscape of countryside (from the top of El Castillo) before you get pampered with an authentic Belizean lunch. After getting fueled up get ready to enjoy a relaxing time in a very unique cave system in Belize.

Enjoy a unique aqua adventure through caves as you frolic downstream through a stunning turquoise river. Your cave-tubing adventure will start with a 20-minute hike as you ford across Caves Branch River. Along the way, you will witness many of the sites and sounds of the lowland broad-leaf tropical forest. Once in the water, be prepared to see the many exotic cave formations that are part of this unique experience. (your guide do the work for you: pulling your tubes while you relax and enjoy the cave system and once out of the caves you will be happy to sunbathe in the warm tropical sun)

Reuben was an amazing guide. He was super nice and knowledgeable. He spent extra time showing us Jaguar’s Paw cave and telling us about Belize’s history, ecology, and general info. We were picked up in Belize City and Reuben basically drove us over the whole country. It was more expensive ($225 each) but definitely worth it. We want to come back to do a full day cave exploration with Reuben.

The horses were incredible and very healthy. The tours were great and our guide went well above and beyond for my group. I would recommend them to everyone!
By Johnathen B for Xunantunich tour, FARM RIDE, chocolate experience on Apr 23, 2024
We had planned this as a private your for my daughter's 6th birthday. It was very hot, so at their suggestion, we were able to change to a farm and jungle ride only followed by a separate ruins tour. This worked out much better given the heat, and allowed us to really enjoy the ruins without worrying about having to ride the horses back when we were done. I appreciated their flexibility and ability to make the tours interesting and accessible to our whole family and to keep my daughter engaged the whole time. We left with her still wanting more, which was great.

Thanks for a great trip. The ride was beautiful and the guides were excellent. One of our participants needed medical assistance and the guides responded promptly and professionally! Thanks for all your help. Loved the hand crank ferry and the horses did so well on it.
By Rick B for FARM RIDE on Mar 29, 2024
I LOVED this trip! I booked it fairly spur of the moment for my last day in San Ignacio and I’m so glad I did. The Xunan Ruins were amazing and our guide, Elio, did a great job of explaining what we were looking at and filling in gaps in my understanding of the Maya. The caves were out of this world, I had just done ATM caves the day before and was in utter awe at Jaguar Paw! I can’t speak highly enough of Elio. He took great care of us all day, sharing with us his knowledge and fantastic sense of humor. Lunch was also excellent. 11/10 recommend this tour.
