What to Expect

River tubing on the South Stann Creek river - 45 minutes from Placencia

This is one of the most fun excursions you will enjoy.  If you are looking for relaxation, some jungle time and simple adventure, then this is the excursion you should do.  Leave the Caribbean Sea to take a short drive and unwind in the jungles of Belize. 

We can pick you up from any agreed location along the Placencia road.  We then take a short drive from Placencia peninsula, driving through Placencia village, Seine Bight Village, Maya Beach and North Placencia and continue until we meet the Southern Highway.  The Placencia road is about 24 miles long.  We take a short ¼ mile drive on the Southern Highway and we make a turn into a private farm.  This part of the short drive is made on dirt/gravel roads and it continues for at least 15 minutes.

You transportation literally drives to the site.  Very Minimal walking/hiking is involved.  This excursion is ideal for the whole family.  We enjoy river tubing for at least 1.5 hours after which we journey back to Placencia.

This tour may be combined with Ziplining or waterfall swimming.

• Barefoot Rental and Services, Main Street, Placencia Belize

We did the river tubing as we were there on a cruise ship. It was a total of 4 hours round trip to tube for one hour. While the tubing was fun it was not worth the school bus ride from the marina round trip, The best part was a the boat ride from the Caye to the marina. Lunch is

Response from BarefootServices, General Manager at River Tubing 45 minutes from Placencia
Responded Nov. 12, 2019
Hello Lisa, I am sorry I believe you have mistaken our tour company name and the actual tour you did. Barefoot Services DOES NOT offer cave tubing to Cruise passengers. For the reasons you indicated, we do not offer cave tubing because of the distance and time constraints. We do not like to rush any of our tours. While we do offer river tubing (different from cave tubing) at a location that is actually 45 minutes away from Placencia, this review is made for a tour you didn't do with us and under a listing that is not the tour you are referring to. We do our very best to offer a quality experience. I'm sorry your tour operator did not communicate that because of your time constraints, indeed the cave tubing adventure is not the most suitable tour for you to have done. Hopefully, you did enjoy the rest of Southern Belize. Megs
