Activity: Tour Guide begins with a tour briefing.  Once we arrive at Maya Center, park tickets are purchased. The 6 miles into the jungle continue until arriving at the visitors center.  At this point the group discuss the park history and importance.  We quickly decide on the trail we will take and head out.  River Tubing is a major highlight of this day in the Jaguar Preserve and this is usually done first.  with the selection of rubber tube to enjoy the river, the group hikes for about  40 minutes to the river.  Reminder of how to manage river tubing as a team on this river is highlighted.  The wet and wild fun continues for another 35 mins.  with exiting the river, the rubber tubes are stocked and another hike begins.  Group hikes for 15 mins to the waterfall.  The spectacular Ben' Bluff waterfall is enjoyed,  after which the group hikes back to the visitors center where we make our way back to Placencia.
