We drive first south, parallel to the Caribbean coast, to Tulum. In Tulum we will visit the only archeological site directly build along the Caribbean coast. Tulum is one of the youngest archaeological sites which can be visited. The city, of which we do not know the original name, was still inhabited when the Spaniards, around 1545, finally conquered the east coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Ninety years later the city was finally left by their inhabitants probably because of the introduction of diseases brought by the Spaniards from Europe. Tulum
After the visit of the ruins in Tulum we will go to beautiful beach of Tulum to have time for swimming and sun. We will end the day in Labna Ha. A part of an underground river found deep below the peninsula. Underground rivers, Cenote, Caves and Caverns were part of the Xibalba: “The Underworld” according to the Mayas. Secrete places inhabited by the nine gods of the Underworld. Only priest would enter in those secret and holy places. Before entering the underground river system a Maya Shaman will give us a blessing. In this surreal place near Playa del Carmen, you can observe natural history dating back millions of years as you hike and swim through a 600-meter route full of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. There are only a few places on the world were these underground river systems have been formed and the Yucatan Peninsula one of these places. We will go deep inside an underground cave, where you’ll experience true silence and darkness hardly found anywhere else, among some of the most dramatic mineral formations in the world.
This whole system is natural build and no changes have been made to give you this special and great experience. Labna Ha is a part of a fascinating underground river system which is ecological managed and its only one of the few underground river systems which can be visit on the peninsula and the rest of the world. The snorkeling tour will take around 1,5 hrs.
After the visit of Labna Ha we return to your hotel
