Both were impressive, there is a lot of different rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites, columns, underwater caves, bats, a walk in the jungle, a lecture on Mayan deities and nature.

Xkopek Parque Apicola Valladolid
#7 of 321 Nature & Parks in Yucatan Peninsula
Our guide, the grandson of the couple who started it many years ago, was very knowledgeable, walking us through the park slowly , stopping to describe the flora and the nature of the bee species we were seeing.
Apart from an activity, Xkopek is also a very nice place to stay as it counts with two tents, a private bathroom and the unique possibility to stay on your own in between the nature.
