Sac Actun Cave System

The 215-mile sunken freshwater labyrinth is a trove of ancient Maya artifacts

In January 2018, explorers with the Great Maya Aquifer Project discovered a connection between two large underwater caverns on the Yucatan Peninsula. 

When combined, the two systems create a 215-mile-long underground labyrinth—the largest flooded cavern on Earth. While the cave itself is an interesting geologic formation, the cave system is also full of pre-Hispanic archaeological sites from the ancient Maya as well as unknown plant and animal species.

Mayan Ruins in Tulum

The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum is considered to be one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Mayans; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. 


It’s very difficult to know the exact number of how many cenotes are out there in the Mexican jungle but there are over 7,000 cenotes, over 2,200 have been registered. And at least 900 of these are considered to be a part of the ‘Ring of Cenotes’ located near the city of Merida. 

Cenotes were so important that most temples and villages were built close by or as recent discoveries prove that the Mayans built on top of cenotes, such as Chichen Itza.

Some cenotes became sacred sites where offerings and rituals were performed to please the gods. Archaeologists have discovered Jade, pottery, gold, and incense at the bottom of sacred cenotes, along with human remains. 

Bioluminescent Beaches of Holbox

Holbox Island or Isla Holbox is an island in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, located on the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is roughly 41 kilometers long, and 1.5 kilometers wide, and it is separated from the mainland by 10km of a shallow lagoon that is home to flamingos, pelicans, and other rich bird life.

We would recommend booking around the 25th on the months of June, July, August, or September as this is the best time to witness the bioluminescent phenomenon.
This natural spectacle is caused by phytoplankton (a type of microalgae that floats at the surface of the ocean water. They emit a mesmerizing bright blue light after they become agitated by wave movements or nearby swimming fish.
