Once all tour participants have arrived at the meeting point, we’ll head to a nearby coffee shop for a coffee and snack (not included), before we depart for the jungle where the caves are located.
After walking through the lush jungle, we’ll ensure that everyone is equipped with all the required gear necessary for our trek. At the cave entrance, your guide will explain the type of cave that we’ll be exploring, as well as a few safety guidelines, and how to follow the signal system to get in and out of the cave. Don't worry if you've never been caving before! While we'll be underground for about 2-3 hours, the caves are fairly large, and aren't tight or closed-in. As well, you won't be expected to swim underwater to reach any of the cave entrances, so leave the SCUBA gear at home.
Inside the vast cave, you’ll see stalactites, stalagmites, limestone columns, and astonishing sinkholes. Your guide, who has expert knowledge of these caves, will teach you about all these different types of incredible limestone formations.
Walking along beautiful subterranean streams and swimming across turquoise cenotes, we will reach small passageways in the limestone that open into large caves along the underground system. Once we reach the end of the cave, we’ll have time to relax, enjoy the fresh jungle air and sunlight, and have a snack before taking part in a traditional and ancient Maya ritual of drumming and singing to give thanks to the Aluxes, the guardians of the Xibalba (or underworld in Maya mythology).
After the ritual, we’ll turn back, and on our way out of the jungle our last stop will be at a local home, where we’ll have the opportunity to experience the local lifestyle.
After this, we’ll drop you off at the meeting point, where our amazing underground adventure will end.
