Discover the inside of the Earth walking through an incredible system of caves with countless rock formations and swimming in the crystal-clear waters of an underground river.
Underground river adventure from Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya
Be ready to discover in this adventure the mayan underworld, also know as Xibalba by Mayans. This experience will open your eyes with spectacular caverns, cenotes and underground rivers.
We will start the walk on a path in the jungle that will take us to one of the entrances of the cave system where the Subterranean River is. Inside the cave we will find cenotes which are crystal water sources and a countless number of stalactites and stalagmites, spectacular rock formations and crustacean fossils. During the tour in the caves our guide will tell us about the creation of these formations and important information about their origins.
After going through those tunnels we will arrive to the main cenote which is lit by natural and artificial light. There is an area with shallow waters where kids can enjoy crystal waters and while the adults can enter the deeper part of this beautiful place.
