We had an absolute blast! Our tour guides were very knowledgeable about both the ruins and the nature/cave systems. We were expecting a run of the mill tubing excursion and instead got the tour of our lives! Thank you so much!

Our trip to Xunantunich and the Jaguar Paw Cave Tubing was an excellent day of learning and fun. We were constantly in awe at the sights and at the knowledge that Elio has and his generosity in sharing so much of it with us. The cave tubing was one of the most interesting, cool and fun things we have done on our many travels. It is a "must do" if you are in the area. Elio is an excellent guide - attentive, passionate, very knowledgeable, fun, hard working and encouraging. The company was very communicative with us throughout the booking process and we felt secure booking ahead. Elio picked us up on time and provided the best experience for our group of 8 people. I highly recommend this company and this particular tour.

All very well: the company that managed the outing was exceptional, the horses were excellent, and our guide Carla was superb.

We opted for just the cave tubing as it was very hot outside and felt it was plenty of fun (and cool). It was challenging at times - jumping into the water and squeezing between stalactites, but also incredibly relaxing to be floating along, laying back, and looking up at the ceiling and incredible sites. Our guide, Elio, was great, informative ,and made us feel very comfortable being in a foreign, dark place and trying new things. So glad we went!!!

A very nice team: passionate owner acting as a (very interesting) guide for the beautiful Maya site, pleasant itinerary on horses. The latter are well trained and obedient. And the guide for the horse tour is nice and friendly. A very good choice.
