Maya mountains and jungle: Go tubing through sacred caves

Visit Us

Go tubing through sacred caves

Drift along the Caves Branch River as it meanders through more than 10km of sacred caves. In ancient Mayan society caves were believed to be entrances to the underworld of Xibalba, and ceremonial centres, altars and artefacts dating back to the pre-Columbian era have all been found within this expansive subterranean network.

With a head torch to light your way as the river disappears into the darkness of a gaping limestone mouth, you can see the distinctive characteristics of each cave. Many have self-explanatory names such as Footprint (after the still visible prints left by ancient shamanic priests), Waterfall, Big Drop and Petroglyph. In these atmospheric underground chambers you can admire the stalactites and learn about the intriguing belief systems of the Maya.
