    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Tour Finder, Zona Hotelera Nte., San Miguel Avenida Rafael E. Melgar Royal Village Shopping Center, Cozumel 77600 Mexico

    After a scenic 45 minutes ferry ride to Playa del Carmen you will board your ground transportation to the Sac-Actun cave system, a very funny and educational ride in which your guide will explain the specific and very interesting facts of the amazing natural wonder you are about to see.

    Once in the heart of the jungle, jump into the fresh crystalline water and swim through the chambers connected by a long dark, incredibly beautiful, low ceiling caves replete with stalagmites and stalactites, a true mother nature´s work of art, considered by the ancient mayan civilization as a sacred place used by priests and warriors for important rituals.

    After this unforgettable experience, you will return to your transportation in which you will enjoy a delicious light snack while getting back to Playa del Carmen, where you will catch the ferry just in time to be back to Cozumel.
