General Info

Your adventure takes you to a hidden underground world the Mayans called Chaak Tun–named for the Mayan god of rain–literally meaning “Chaak’s Rain of Stone.” Looking around at the striking stalactite and stalagmite formations, it’s easy to see why. While walking along, learn about the Mayan people and why they revered these fascinating caverns. Go for a rejuvenating swim or snorkel in these sacred waters, taking a close look at these dazzling works of nature below the surface. You’ll also appreciate the fact that Chaak Tun has been certified by Sustainable Travel International, a global nonprofit with stringent environmental standards. After a dip, enjoy an authentic Mayan lunch before making your way to Playa Del Carmen–one of the trendiest cities on the Yucatan Peninsula–and visit the 5th Avenue shopping district to search for the perfect souvenir.
