Take a guided tour to explore Grutas Las Marias, a network of deep caves featuring unusual rock formations and stalactites. Tours are conducted using the light of homemade candles, which add to the eerie atmosphere and your overall experience. Make sure you wear a swimsuit and rubber shoes, as this cave features several natural pools and a very slippery floor. Not recommended for claustrophobia sufferers.

    From swimming in narrow caves to jumping into a pool, you can have absolutely everything there. Sometimes quite tight. Don't forget shoes (no sandals) and your action cam. Best adventure so far.  more »

    It is activity is perfect if someone wants to get out of the rut and experience extreme. It is ideal for a different adventure, if you like to take a risk and adrenaline is a very good choice.
