This is one of the least frequent activities around San Ignacio, and so there is a chance you'll be one of the only people on site. To get there, you'll have to travel on a dirt road across the Mennonite territory. Because of the road conditions and limited interest, we were escorted in a pickup truck and given what was pretty much a private tour.
The cave was beautiful, and there are Mayan cultural remains you can spot from the canoe. Our tour guide, Rudy, had a hypnotic way of describing the cave environment, geology, and Mayan mythology.
If you're looking for something like the ATM cave but would prefer not to have to go through the entire adventurous ordeal of hiking, wading, swimming, and enduring hours in soaking wet clothes, this is the perfect place to experience it!
