holiday overview

Highlights / General details

You will hike for 30 minutes through the forest before arriving the cave entrance. A short swim will lead you into the amazing underworld realm. An adventurous trek leads into the main water passage, where you get to enjoy amazing geological formations like sparkling stalactites, stalagmites, and flow stones. This hidden chamber promises to reveal ancient secrets and geological processes that have helped to shape the Maya underworld known as Xibalba; a fearful world beneath the face of the earth; the parallel unseen, into which kings and shamans of the Maya past could venture in to and communicate with their gods or ancestors through rituals and ceremonies. The Mayas believed that their gods had dual face; they could be good or bad. So in order to please the gods they would take offerings which would consist of food, blood, or human sacrifices, in hopes of getting rain, fertility or to prosper in hunting and agriculture.
