Explore Grutas de Calcehtok, the longest dry-cave system on the Yucatán Peninsula. The caves feature a vast array of impressive natural formations amid the wild jungle vegetation. Take a guided tour by flashlight through more than 4 km (2.5 mi) of underground passages. Be prepared to get dirty and crawl through tight entrances leading into wide-open cave vaults exceeding 100 m (328 ft) in diameter. Various ancient Mayan artifacts have been discovered in the caves, and you can still see fortifications built by those who sheltered here during the Caste War. You can choose between a basic, intermediate, or adventure tour. People who suffer from claustrophobia should reconsider their decision to visit. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Grutas de Calcehtok by using our Maxcanu holiday planner.
