It was known as Pool Tunich, it is part of the natural wonders of the Riviera Maya and it is thousands of years old. In this underground river you can appreciate the impressive visual spectacle that thousands of stalactites and stalagmites give to this enigmatic place.

We’re talking about the longest unflooded cave of Quintana Roo State and of the Yucatan Peninsula, but more than the length what makes it so special, is that it is a semi-humid cave, since in the vast majority of the caves of the Peninsula are flooded.

To enter this place, you will be provided with a complete neoprene suit, helmet with a special lamp and special shoes.

Then you will be guided to a labyrinth full of passages formed by geological processes, walking and swimming about 600 meters where circulation is easy and you can appreciate the thousands of stalactites and stalagmites.

This cave is made of glass and any bad step can cause damage, hence the importance of using equipment. This tour will allow you to experience silence and live a wonderful journey full of incredible rock formations and it will conduct you through an introspective journey.
