If you are into adventure tourism you have one new option to enjoy the wonders of nature and feel the adrenaline!
Jump at the mouth of the Tekax Crystals Cave from a 200 meter zip-line, one of the longest in the state of Yucatán.
Members of the Cooperativa Chocantes, which offers the “Tekax Crystals Cave Tours”, point out that this zip line has become a new attraction for those who want to enjoy adventure tourism in this town.
The Tekax Crystals Cave or “Chocantes“, as it has been known for many years, has been visited by tourists from different countries. It has several routes, the longest has more than four kilometers and to get back to the surface you have to walk underground for seven hours.
Pedro Cervera Xool, one of the representatives of this cooperative, says that they have been working for two years now to consolidate the site as world-class adventure tourism destination, offering guided tours from $ 150 pesos per person for those who want to “feel the adrenaline, going through caverns and stony paths, climbing to the viewpoint 175 meters above sea level and venturing into the 200 meter zip line from there.
“We have the necessary protective equipment to ensure people who climb the zip line, also those who enter the caves receive guidance, lamps and other accesories. Those who have visited us have left with a great impression” he says.
From the top of the viewpoint, communities such as Akil, Pencuyut, Tixcuytún, Santa María, a large part of Tekax, and thousands of hectares of jungle can be seen on the horizon.
“It is an unforgettable adventure, which we recommend to all people who want to enjoy a different route,” said Priscila Andrea Vera, one of the visitors who enjoyed one of the tours.
Cervera Xool points out that they still have many ecological projects to start, so there can be more options for visitors, but those who want to make the tours and live this experience of contact with nature and history, can contact him at his cell phone 997-117-27 -56.
