Continue the adventure with a visit to an impressive cenote, and feel a rush of adrenaline as you rappel down inside it!  You can also zip line into the cenote, or swing on "Tarzan's Vine" into its cool waters. Great fun!

After swimming in the cenote, you'll enjoy a delicious Mayan lunch in a local restaurant, and watch local artisans create authentic Mayan handicrafts, explore the gardens or relax in the hammocks. By the end of this tour, you'll feel like you have really experienced Mayan culture and the terrain of the Yucatan!
