Our Cenote Adventures Explore Xibalba, the Maya Underworld

As an introduction, in Maya mythology, “Xibalba” is known as the underworld.  The Xplore Xibalba Adventure is one of our favorites as it is uniquely different from any of our other excursions, which encourages the adventurous side of you.

If you are looking for something Unique, if you love Natural untouched Beauty, if you want to Escape the Ordinary and Step back in time in the footsteps of the Ancient Maya, then this is the excursion for you – be prepared to be amazed. 

You will be travelling through pueblos and villages to two amazing and unique cenote locations. Learn the History of the Maya Underworld as you explore / wade through a labyrinth of tunnels of an Underground River system and see spectacular displays of geology illuminated only by your waterproof flashlights (provided). 

Raise the bar on excitement,  overcome a few optional challenges along the way and experience the opportunity to expand your boundaries and push your limits a little.  Part of the excitement is not knowing what treasures you will find around the next turn!  In a natural setting, illuminated only by your flashlights, your heart will beat a little faster, in a world where the waters are sacred and history exists.
