This natural wonder was carved out of the limestone foothills of the Maya Mountains by the river that runs through it and forms part of the largest cave system in all of Central America. Archaeological research notes that the ancient Maya visited the site to conduct important rituals.
Once at the entrance you will strap on our headlights and life vests. You are propelled by the gentle currents as your guide educates you about the natural formations found inside the cave. Making your way out of the first cave, the second portion becomes more exciting as the water flows faster.
