Looking for something to do while visiting Belize? How about a cave tubing adventure? There is one company that stands out among the rest for providing a safe, cultural, and adventurous excursion. That company is Vital Nature and Mayan Tours. The owner, Vitalino Reyes, knows what it takes to make his clients feel welcome and enjoy the very best that Belize has to offer.
The best was yet to come! We boarded our tubes and with Oscar guiding us through, had a relaxing ride through the caves. We saw all the typical ‘cave’ items in addition to a waterfall and a beautiful break of lush greenery.
I found Vitalino and his company on Trip Advisor and after reading the stellar reviews for his company, decided to inquire about availability for the day our cruise ship arrived. I received a quick response that there was indeed availability with detailed information on what would be included on our excursion. Before we arrived, I had some other questions, which were promptly answered.
Upon arriving at the pier in Belize, we followed the instructions to meet up with our tour guide. We were greeted with cold bottled water and discovered Vitalino himself was there making sure that everything was running smoothly. Our group of five consisting of one adult and children aged 15, 11, 9, and 8 were escorted to a brand new van. No worry about the air conditioning, my kids actually asked to have it turned down. It worked very well!
Our tour guide was Oscar. He was very friendly and accommodating at all times. I had to pull my children out of this school for this vacation so I wanted to make sure this was an educational experience in addition to an adventurous one. During the van ride to the tube caves, Oscar told us interesting facts about Belize along the way. My children shot him with many questions and he cheerfully answered each one.
Once we arrived at the tubing cave, the adventure continued. It was about a 30 minute walk to get to the entrance of the cave. Along the way we had the opportunity to search for monkeys, hold a tarantula, and walk off the beaten path to see some historical bones hidden on the side of a cave.
Here are some ways in which Vitalino’s company differs from other cave tubing excursion companies:
* Lunch is included in the tour with unlimited cultural cuisine and rum punch
* The tubes are already located at the cave entrance so we didn’t have to carry our own tubes during the 30 minute walk from the park entrance to the cave.
* Vitalino’s tubes are very comfortable including back rests.
* Vitalino’s guides are very knowledgable and make the entire day cultural, educational, and fun.
I will recommend Vitalino to my future cruise clients who are looking for the best way to spend their day in Belize. I know how well he took good care of me and I know he will do the same for my clients. Vitalino represents a great value and experience compared to what is purchased through the cruise ships. Although cave tubing is Vitalino’s specialty and favorite, he also offers tours to all main attraction in Belize.
