To the Mayans, caves were where the afterlife began. They entered the caves to conduct their rituals and to present their offerings to the Gods. Today, we see evidence of these activities from the remains left behind. After about a one hour hike through the jungle you will reach the opening of the cave. At the mouth you will swim into the cave. For the following 1.5 hours you will wade and swim in the cave while contemplating the beauty of your surroundings. Learn about the formations and possibly discover a few animals that live in the darkness. The last magnificent chamberl opens up and you will remove your shoes and will walk around the various remains and artifacts in only your socks! We will say no more about this experience — it is for you to see!
