Enjoyed the ride through the underground river. Quite interesting and different than other caverns I have been to. Too cold for swimming like the cenotes in Puerto Morelos. Worth the drive. We went on the last your of the day

The guided cave tours explain the history of the cave system, and point out the different formations you will see along the way. It is a relaxing, cool boat ride, and is appropriate for all ages. Keep little ones hands inside the boat.
