Crystal Caves and Underground River

Ancient Mayan folklore will be revealed while on an adventure that includes a hike among the beautiful cave formations and swim at a hidden cenote sinkhole, plus time for shopping along Playa del Carmen’s 5th Avenue strip. A ferry boat ride and excursion van ride bring you into the Yucatan jungle, where you’ll be equipped with a helmet, lamp, water shoes and life jacket. Then head out on foot along slippery limestone pathways that lead to the crystal-blue waters of a cenote. This natural watering hole, nestled in the dark reaches of a subterranean cave, is part of a massive underground network of rivers and caves that remain unexplored. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council’s Criteria for Tour Operators.
