Step into the world of the ancient Maya on a tour of Actun Tunichil Muknal, hiking and wading deep into a series of tunnels, chambers, and passageways. Support from an experienced cave guide ensures a safe trip into—and back out of—the maze-like cave network, where you’ll find the "Crystal Maiden," the crystallized remains of an ancient ceremonial victim.

The highlight of our trip! You just have to go and experience this! You could be either swimming in the cave to treading water, or in beautiful caverns or squeezing through! Lots of artifacts and the our guide was very knowledgeable.
