BACK TO THE GREAT CITIES
Ek Balam & Valladolid
This is a half day snorkeling tour. First we visit the ocean to snorkel with very colorful caribbean fish and there´s always the possibility to see a stingray and a sea turtle. For this activity we visit an inlet or a bay to avoid waves and currents.
Cenotes are one of the most attractive characteristics of the landscape of the yucatan peninsula; these amazing caves/caverns with all kinds of magnificent limestone formations flooded with rain water are a "must see". Cenotes have also played a vital role in the development of the history of the yucatan peninsula and of its settlers, these natural wells are considered sacred since they are the access to the vital substance and in the cosmo vision of the maya, they are entrances to the underworld.
Mexico kan tours has chosen a gorgeous cenote for this excursion. We visit a 600m (2000 ft.) Long cave where we are able to appreciate the different kinds of speleothems and learn about their formation process and the significance and importance of these caves for the people of the yucatan peninsula.
During the first part of the cave we walk with water about 1 meter deep (3.5 ft.) Until we arrive to an area were the ceiling of the cave collapsed and the natural light comes through allowing us to swim in deeper water with natural light. We continue swimming and walking along the cave until we come out in the middle of the jungle! An incredible spiritual journey through the mayan underworld.
