What to Expect
Visit: Grutas de Lol-Tun, None Puuc region, Oxkutzcab 97860 Mexico

Loltún, which in Mayan means "Flor de Piedra, (this name depends on the fact that along the grotto there are patterns of flowers) is the name of unique grottos located in the south of the state that attract the attention of locals and foreigners and in which evidence of human settlements from 400 to 700 years ago has been found.

The Mayans used them to provide themselves with clay, with which they made their utensils, and, also, as a religious center and refuge.

Another attraction of great interest are the cave paintings: on one wall hands can be seen in negative, on another more elaborate paintings that represent faces, animals and stepped frets are located.

In the gallery there is a huge vault known as the Cathedral, during the tour are colorful games of light and shadow, produced by the passage of the Sun's rays through several cavities.

From the beginning of the tour, visitors can admire travertine formations that, due to their suggestive and capricious forms, have been baptized with peculiar names, such as "La catedral", "La cabeza", "El gran cañón", "La mazorca de maíz" "," Infante "," Pinturas","Manos negras"," El cuarto de las estalactitas"and" Trincheras "

Among the latter, there is a series of columns that, when hit, produce sounds of different shades.

The caves also protect a head, which from 1959 to 1960 was exhibited in the Museum of Anthropology and returned to the place in 1981.

The visit to these caves is a unique experience.

The walk covers a distance of more than 700 meters of impressive rock formations.
