Explore ancient underground Mayan caves with secret waterfalls hidden deep in the underground ceremonial caverns. The adventure starts with a 25-minute hike through the jungle to the ... moreentrance of the hidden cave. From the entrance, the hike through the cave is about 45 minutes- your excitement grows as you hear the distance thundering of the waterfalls grow louder and louder. The adrenaline kicker is rock climbing up each waterfall, swimming through plunge pools, and stepping out of your comfort zone as you climb up the largest waterfall -15 feet high! The entire time, you are again- underground- inside a mysterious cave. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will not want to miss.

Scratch “Adrenaline Pumping” off your bucket list! Hike up into the foothills of the Maya Mountains to the edge of the Actun Loch Tunich- a GINORMOUS natural sinkhole that drops 300ft ... moreinto the rainforest floor below. Trained guides have rigged a system of 1st class rappelling ropes into the depths- to the rainforest basin floor below. Your adrenaline will kick in – leaving you stunned one second and breathless the next, by the breathtaking views that surround you as you repel down. Reaching the bottom- in a Superman-type landing- relax for a lunch served on a white tablecloth-covered stone; a well-deserved feast! The rainforest exploration continues as you rock climb and hike your way out of the sinkhole and back down to the starting point of this phenomenal adventure. This isn’t called the “Mother of all Caves” for no reason.
