Well worth the money but make sure you are in good fysical health. Beautiful surroundings, cave is magnificent and the Mayan remains are very surreal. Nice refreshing swim. Don't miss this one!!

Pros: - very cool - adventurous - not too commercialized or touristy (yet!) - exhilarating Cons: - You might not like this if you can't swim, are claustrophobic, don't like being wet most of the time, or can't climb rocks/ladders/boulders, or are afraid of getting...More
