Get the exciting story behind the formation of Aktun Chen Cave from your guide on this thrilling tour to a huge cave network, first discovered by the Mayans.

Walk through this sprawling underground complex, learn why it was considered a sanctuary for rain spirits (allegedly living in the Aktun Chen cenote), and go for a cool swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

There's life in the murky tunnels of this 5-million-year-old grotto, from bats to blind fishes with ghostly, transparent bodies!
