Mayan Jungle Walk
15 minute drive north into the jungles of Tulum.
Upon arrival, we meet with a local Mayan rancher who will lead us along a 20 minute path to the underbelly of the earth and its elaborate cavern system known as Cenotes. Cenotes are known for their refreshing and crystal clear water, we will spend some time exploring underground as we swim in the elaborate cavern exploring the various formations.
Duration: 2 hours
More on Cenotes
A cenote is a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings.
The term derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya — ts’onot — to refer to any location with accessible groundwater. Cenotes are common geological forms in low latitude regions, particularly on islands, coastlines, and platforms with young post-Paleozoic limestones that have little soil development.
