Crystal Cave Day Trip

The Crystal Cave Tour

This tour starts with a 50-minute hike through lush rainforest and partially steep terrain, which most consider challenging.

Arriving at the cave entrance, the excitement begins as we journey into “Xibalba.”

Done tactically, around columns and crystalline formations with the help of the guide, at times nearly crawling past the calcite formations as you enter through a narrow and, sometimes, steeply descending pathway.

Once inside the main cave, you will be surrounded by a fantastic crystal cave used by ancient Maya Shamans (priests) for ritual ceremonies performed thousands of years ago.

Fire pits, exposing the ashes of ancient fires; charcoal pieces; beads; obsidian knives; ceramics, & broken pottery; a human skeleton, calcified in the limestone floor; all evidence of the flourishing ancient Maya civilization.

Your guide will explain the geology of the cave and the Mayan history and detail some ancient ceremonies held inside caves like this one.

Bloodletting & human sacrifice are among the most common ceremonies of the Maya.

After your adventure in the Crystal Cave, you will hike back to the park facilities, where you can take a refreshing swim in the calm waters of the inland Blue Hole.
