This Cave Tubing experience is a combination between caving and body rafting, making this adventure a unique on its own. We hike through trail forest to encounter the entrance of the River Cave, and is here where we experience the underground river. With helmets and life jackets on and a floating tube, and we are ready to embark in a sacred journey going cave tubing at Tanamá River. The Cave that we will be crossing for about 20mins. is called El Portillo (little portal), and this is the first tunnel cave that the Tanamá River finds on its way down to the ocean. This tunnel cave system is through limestone bedrock, which have been erode by the waters for millions of years. Many of the limestone are composed from skeletal fragments of marine organism such as corals and shells, and you will have the opportunity to witness some of these petrify coral reef, and also how Mother Earth is creating itself. After we spend some time floating down the stream and enjoying the cave tubing we get closer to the exit of the tunnel cave with a gorgeous view of the open sky river. Now the Sun will be shining over our heads giving us the warm sunlight that we all need to be alive, and we keep floating while we observe the beauty of the rocks formation in this area of the Tanamá River. After finishing with the cave tubing experience we will enjoy the river and its Natural swimming pools, with optional free jumps, climbing, and more. Good time to relax and enjoy Nature as it is, and getting ready for the next Tanamá River Adventures experience!
