Wearing your bathing suit you'll descend 10 feet into the Underworld of the Mayan Gods, a cave system. With a hard hat on your head and a waterproof flashlight in your hand, you begin an underground trek. Halfway through your journey into the infra-world under the jungle, you enter an underground swimming area where you can have a swim or swing from a Tarzan rope! Swimming and walking you continue your adventurous 45-minute walk, through tunnels and underground rivers up to your belly to exit the infra-world into a large depression.
Go snorkeling in the lagoon of Yalkoo, a former natural Mayan harbor at the town of Akumal in the middle of the Riviera Maya, near Cancun and Playa del Carmen. The lagoon is a caved-in cave system, full of fish. You snorkel through canyons while observing different types of fish, like sergeant major, parrotfish, neon fish, angelfish, and the occasional barracuda or turtle. I will guide you for 1-hour through the lagoon before you leave for the restaurant.
After snorkeling, you can take a shower at the facilities before going for lunch at a beach restaurant close to the lagoon, with a beautiful view of the Caribbean sea. You can choose between a typical Mexican lunch like fish or chicken tacos, fish filet with the fresh catch of the day, pasta, or vegetarian lunch. After lunch, you’ll drive back to the hotel.
