Our guide spoke perfect English (not that it mattered to us, but it seems that people value this), he was very informative, patient (with the kids that were on the tour), and funny! The food was really good. It was a fun day, just not...More
Go deep into the Yucatan jungle for a full-day adventure that combines cenote swimming, snorkeling, 4-wheeling, and ziplining, with a Maya lunch and shaman-led purification ceremony. Since the day—which includes return transportation from Cancun—blends adventure and culture, you’ll get a taste of Maya traditions while exploring pools and caves that are part of the world’s longest underground river system.
Meet a driver at your hotel in Cancun, then travel to the Maya community of Rancho San Felipe to start the day with a traditional purification ceremony led by a local shaman.
Next, head into the jungle to find the Sac Actun cenote system, where you’ll don snorkeling gear for a swim through the cavern of Nohoch Nah Chich, with stalactites and stalagmites above and below the water. Go even farther into the forest on a 4WD Mercedes-Benz Unimog, then rappel 40 feet (12 meters) into Yaxmuul, another underground pool. Get up into the treetops on a series of three ziplines for a swooping descent from the forest canopy back into the water.
Following your time in the jungle, discover the flavors of Maya cuisine at a lunch buffet, then finish the day with return transfer to your original departure point.
