After hiking the Mayan ruins, we ventured into the Cayo district of Belize for some cave tubing. We picked up our tubes and head lamps at the entrance of the site.
Then our guide took us on a 30 minute hike through the Belizean rainforest, next to the Cave Branch River, pointing out different plants, trees, animals and insects along the way. The scenery was beautiful and the jungle was really cool to hike through. The guide told us about the medicinal uses of the trees, bark and plants. He pointed out what was poisonous, what was deadly and what would heal you if you happened upon those other things. And he even ate some termites, just to show us that you could. He said they were minty. Despite Ryan's obsession with survival shows, he turned down the termites. I think lunch was filling enough.
Below is a line of ants carrying leaves. These guys weren't messing around.
