  • I recommend wide mind visiting this place. It was a cave used by the Maya as a place of ceremonies, is mystical. It is recommended to go in groups of 3 people or more, the cost of 100 MXM per person. The guide accompanies them, to us accompanied us don Francisco and we loved, much known and is a very nice gentleman. Tours in Spanish are at 9 am, 12 am and 14 pm-16 pm. If they go to another time and are three or more people, just give them the tour. It's nothing dangerous. There are parking lots. I highly recommend it.

  • They do tours on the hour, alternating languages. 6 Persons min for a tour. We waited an hour in hopes that someone would show up to join us. No one showed up. We never saw the cave...  more »
  • Got a lead to 4. Of the Badm, a shclecht is understandable and not very informative English explanation. (13: 00 deuts h, 14: 00 Spanish). The cave is quite impressive, even if it is very hot there a breathing zwisxhendurch difficult. All around is a botanical garden. The Mini Museum is nice, very clean toilets.
