The caves in Belize offer something for everyone. The Rio Frio Cave is best for those who are not natural cavers and can be enjoyed from a canoe, while the more adventurous may enjoy cave tubing (floating through the cave in a rubber ring) at Nohuch Che'en Reserve.
The real adrenaline junkies can visit the Actun Tunichil Mucnal in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. Whilst this involves both swimming and trekking before the walk through the cave, these efforts are well rewarded by the chance to see the crystal maiden, a victim of ritual sacrifice.
