Small Group Cenotes Adventure and Family Lunch Tour

Head deep beneath the earth on this cenote adventure that takes you to the Yucatán’s mysterious underground world. Escape from the heat of the Yucatán Peninsula by swimming in the clear, fresh water in just a few of the 6,000 cenote formations in the region, and learn about the legends that haunt these watering holes along with their history and importance for the Mayan Culture (especially in this area of the Yucatan). Get a taste for local culture with a visit to a traditional Maya medicinal shop, and explore a Mayan town where ancient practices have been passed down over generations.

  • Your Mérida tour takes you out of the city centre (via local public transit) and to a nearby Maya village. You’ll 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 (underground caves) only accessible on two wheels. You’ll learn about the geology of these gorgeous subterranean worlds, and hear the stories and mysteries.

    You’ll escape the heat and swim 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 prepare the lunch for you.

    You’ll visit a traditional “drugstore,” where ancient Maya 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. From here, you’ll begin your journey back to Mérida — but, if you’re feeling adventurous, you’re free to stay longer on your own and make your own way back to Mérida.
