Your guide will lead you on a trail through the jungle, and they will be able to answer your questions about the surrounding landscape. In the terrain surrounding the Caves Branch River the ground is comprised of porous, malleable limestone. This material makes it possible for caves to form.
At the end of the trail you will reach the Caves Branch River and take to the water in an inflatable inner tube. The gentle currents of the river will draw you through amazing caves and taverns. Head lamps will be provided so that you don’t miss a thing.
