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. Plan your visit to Grutas de Calcehtok and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Maxcanu trip tool .

Available options are 3 caves, where we (absolutely recommended, without a guide you have no chance to penetrate the secrets of the cave) had enough adventure to explore the "dangerous cave" with the help of the Guide on the spot for the day. Footwear, not afraid to get dirty and flashlights are essential for the adventure. With the leader you should discuss the "honorary" advance, we were rather modest (for what has he offered everything to us and shown) 250 pesos in hindsight. We were thrilled!
