Belize Cave Tubing
Belize Cave Tubing - shore excursion in during a cruise line stop on the Carnival Sunshine ship. This video shows the full extent of the water journey which includes a lot of time floating leisurely through the jungle. It does not include all of the trip inside the cave, which was much longer, since it was only lit by headlamps. It's a beautiful walk through the jungle to the river and a relaxing float down and through the cave. Trip was through Butts Up Cave Tubing.
The video was shot with a GoPro Hero 3+.

Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins in San Ignacio - Belize Travel Adventures
Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins in San Ignacio, Belize are a great set of ruins to visit. Cahal Pech sits on the top of the hill overlooking the town of San Ignacio. From pretty much anywhere in town you can see the cell phone tower that dominates the skyline .. the ruins sit below it well to the north a little. Its a medium hike up the hill from town to the site but it can be done. Or like us you can stay at the Cahal Pech Resort which is also below the tower. This is a great site, having many halls and staircases worth exploring. When you come to Belize I would come here again its a really cool place

Belize - Cave Tubing
We hiked for around 45 minutes up to these amazing caves where we hoped in inner tubes and headed down river. We had headlamps to see where we were going in the dark. Nate had his video camera and managed to grab some good footage.

Belize Vacation - GoPro HD
We visited San Ignacio and saw both Mayan ruin sites (Xunantunich and Cahal Pech) and stopped by Hotel San Ignacio's iguana preserve. From there we crossed the border into Guatemala to see Tikal. We finished the trip at the cayes - San Pedro and Caye Caulker.

Belize - 2017 - Mayan Temples - Caye Caulker - Cave Tubing - Tikal
If you have any questions regarding my trip or things I'd recommend, leave a comment below! Belize and Guatemala are very welcoming and amazing.
The itinerary of our trip:
1. Snorkeling Adventure - Coral Garden, Tarpon Feeding, Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker Beach Break with Belize Exotic Adventures. I did not film the snorkeling or shark feeding bit since we were in the water swimming. But I filmed the tarpon feeding, which was really cool!
2. Xunantunich Mayan Ruins with Pacz Tours. This is the 2nd tallest structure in Belize (behind the temple at Caracol) but it was really easy to climb. The view is spectacular. We also stopped at Cahal Pech Ruins that are walking distance from San Ignacio as well as the iguana sanctuary at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel.
3. Caracol Mayan Ruins along with Rio Frio Cave and Rio on Pools with MayaWalk Tours. Caracol is a fairly large site with many temples to climb, as well as the largest structure in Belize! The road took a bumpy 2 hours to get here, but worth it. Rio On Pools are natural pools in a river that felt refreshing after hiking around the ruins.
4. Tikal Mayan Ruins in Guatemala with Pacz Tours. This is a must for anyone going to Belize. Tikal is too close to Belize to pass up, and it's the largest Mayan ruins site. Countless temples to climb, all surrounded by jungle and wildlife. One can never forget this is where George Lucas filmed Yavin 4 in the original Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977.
5. Cave tubing with MayaWalk Tours in the Caves Branch river system at the Nohoch Che'en Caves Branch Archaeological Reserve. After a 45 minutes hike through the jungle, we floated peacefully down a river that passed through multiple caves and jungle.
This video was filmed between January 3rd, 2017 to January 9th, 2017. It consists mainly of my adventures with my family in Belize, but a quick side trip to Tikal in Guatemala.

Day 2: Snorkeling 12:30
Day 3: Belize City 22:22, Xunantunich 31:45, Cahal Pech 40:40
Day 4: Entering Guatemala
This was not only my first trip to Central America but my first backpacking trip. This trip was a huge breakthrough in my vision of travel as I have spend the past year evolving my passion and desire for travel. It was suppose to be two plus ones, however my mom didn't make it because of school. So my step father and I happily flew into the beautiful countries of Belize and Guatemala, Two completely different yet diverse lands with amazing people. Although Belize is the only English speaking country in Central America, it is a mixing pot of English, Spanish, Mayan, and coastal Garifuna cultures. Belize is a good mashup of tourist and backpacker all in one.
After flying into Belize Citys airport out the outskirts of the city, we took a cab to the Belize City Water Taxi terminal. From here we took about an hour boat ride to Caye Caulker en route to our island, Ambergris Caye where San Pedro is. San Pedro so far was the most relaxing and most laid back place I have ever been to. WHen they say take it slow, they mean it as time nearly seized to exist and our time there seemed to last longer than we thought, GOOD. We spend half of our second day strolling the beaches, walking around town where all they primarily drive is golf carts, and finally went snorkeling in Shark Alley with sharks, turtles, and fish.
Third day we left the relaxation of the island behind, headed for Belize City and took our first 3 hour chicken bus across Belize for San Ignacio. Although uncomfortable, the bus ride costed us a whopping $4. Once we finally arrived in San Ignacio, we settled in our cozy hotel and took a cab ride over to the Mayan ruins of Xunantunich, 15 to 20 minutes from the Guatemala border and the Mayan ruins of Cahal Pech, outside the city. Considering the distance, we walked from Cahal Pech through the small town of San Ignacio to catch dinner and finally head back to our hotel. Instead of our fourth day cave diving or tubing, we cancelled those plans and headed straight for the Guatemalan border to spend the next five days there before heading back home.
Belize is an amazing country for it's size. It not only offers great tourism but offers foreigners the opportunity to buy land for retirement. As for backpackers, Belize is the most if not one of the more expensive countries in Central America. However, the experience between relaxing on a Belizean beach or hiking up a Mayan pyramid is something that you truly can never forget. For a small English speaking nation in Central America, Belize is Unbelizable. Can you Belize it? :)
Many years ago, I sat in a college classroom glancing at pictures of travel, two years ago I started, last year I left the country for the first time, this trip, I backpacked for the first time. Like all my videos, they represent me as I put my heart into all of my footage. I not only enjoy my time and explore but I hope to give others the opportunity to see how things are done beyond the travel guides and books. This is travel in the eyes of Anthony Perez! Hope you enjoy and happy travels!

Butts Up Cave Tubing - Belize with Jimmy
This is a video of out Cave Tubing excursion we took in Belize with Butts Up Cave Tubing you can find them here Pieces of the description were taken from trip advisor and applied perfectly to our trip as follows: They picked us up right outside the cruise terminal. After leaving town, it took about an hour to get to the national park. Along the way Jimmy, our guide, provided useful information.
- The hike: About 30 minutes. Mostly a reasonable dirt path through the woods, a couple of points where it is a bit steep up or down a hill and 3 points where you wade across a river (under 2 feet deep at the deepest)
- The water: Refreshing after the hike. Most of your body doesn't actually get wet. You wade onto and off of the tube, and your butt is in the center of the tube, but while riding the river you stay fairly dry. This wasn't whitewater - it was more of a lazy river
- The guides: they work their butts off pushing and pulling the tubes and at points doing so while swimming.
- Fear of drowning: Pretty minimal. Most of the time the river is only a few feet deep and it's not that fast a current. You're wearing a lifevest, you're on an inner tube, and there's a guide ratio of at least 1:8 required by the park
-In conclusion it was the best money we spent the entire cruise, well worth the money. Jimmy was an Excellent guide. After the tour lunch was great and we were returned to the port doorstep. definitely a must do in Belize.
