After a short bus ride, arrive at the historic "Chaac Tun" cenote, a sacred site to the ancient Mayans. These natural wonders were created by the filtration of water through the limestone terrain, and over the course of thousands of years created stunning stalactites, columns and formations. Follow the guides toward a fresh water underground river, where you'll have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the underground caverns and take a refreshing swim.
