Cave tubing is something our family has done several times, and to tell the truth, it will probably be something we will do again very soon. It always seems to be "on the list" for things to do, for anyone coming to Belize for the very first time.
My first time cave tubing, I didn't know what to expect. But as I slowly got use to it, I came to realize, that it is actually quite fun. My grandparents could do this tour, in fact anyone's grandparents could do this tour. There is some light walking involved, but once you get to the river, all you have to do is sit in the inner tube and float leisurely down the river.
What I really like to do, is hold hands and float down the river together. My brother thinks this is stupid, but I kind of like it. It's a girl thing, my mom says.
When I go back to the states to visit my family, everyone asks me what I do in Belize to have fun. When I tell them I hike through jungles, float through caves, zip line through tree tops, eat conch, lion fish, shrimp, stewed chicken, beans & rice........nobody believes me. I laugh when they realize, "I really do!". Yeah, I guess I'm sort of a different kind of kid. I don't ride a school bus, I don't own a pair of snow shoes, I experience winter by watching it on television, and the beach is my backyard.
