You can choose a beginner Explorer to run for 45 minutes. Or, step out to the Intermedio level and zipline through the Belize rainforest for a full hour. If you crave more excitement, then combine both runs and try the Ultimo Explorer — 9 runs, 15 platforms, a jungle lift, and 2,700 feet of adrenaline-pumping zip lining!

However, if you want to up the thrill and you are an after-hours enthusiast, try the Night Explorer run and experience the jungle in the dark.

Jaguar Paw is located in Eastern Belize along the banks of the Caves Branch River. Their zipline trail allows you to fly above the jungle floor and over winding rivers. With this in mind, the entire tour takes approximately one hour. It sees you enjoy a short nature walk before taking to the trees with a local guide to ensure your safety throughout this sky-high escapade.

For a full-day adventure, combine your ziplining trip with cave tubing. Go from flying above ground to experiencing the Maya underworld. Firstly, this cave tubing experience starts with a hike heading upstream alongside the river.
