Overview
Step into the world of the ancient Maya on a tour of Actun Tunichil Muknal, hiking and wading deep into a series of tunnels, chambers, and passageways. Support from an experienced cave guide ensures a safe trip into—and back out of—the maze-like cave network, where you’ll find the "Crystal Maiden," the crystallized remains of an ancient ceremonial victim.

This was such an awesome experience. Juan Carlos was incredibly knowledgeable, so kind and so helpful. His passion for the area’s history is felt every step of the trail and through the cave. Highly recommend this tour and JC!

My girlfriend and I did this tour together on our vacation. The service provided by the company was great, with door to door shuttle service from our hotel and back. Eric was our tour guide, he was very knowledgeable and friendly, and was a great narrator during the adventure.
