Description

Escape the heat of the Yucatán Peninsula by swimming and snorkeling in just a few of the 6,000 cenote formations of the region, learning haunting stories and legends about these watering holes. Your Mérida tour takes you out of the city center via local public transit to a nearby Mayan village, where sustainable tourism feeds back into the local economy. You meet with locals and see some of the region's most precious natural treasures.

First up, hop on a 4-person motorbike and take off into the jungle toward the first of 3 different cenotes only accessible on 2 wheels. Learn about the geology of these gorgeous subterranean worlds, and hear the stories and mysteries that surround them as you descend narrow staircases and through hollow passageways deep underground. Escape the heat and swim and snorkel in the fresh waters of these eerie caverns, where a world of mystery awaits just beneath the surface.

Next, your guide will lead you through the village to give you a taste of local life with a family who are going to use their ancient cooking skills to prepare the lunch you are going to enjoy. You visit a traditional “drugstore,” where ancient Mayan medicinal remedies are prepared. All of the medicines are derived from natural plants and prepared with knowledge that has been preserved and passed down by families living in this corner of the Yucatán. You may even hear a short prayer and blessing in the Mayan language, thanking the guardians of this sacred place for allowing us to visit.
