What you'll do

After a journey of more than 8km in the middle of the jungle, we will immerse ourselves in a cave and underground rivers system for a guided exploration, crossing the most surreal rock formations. Helmets well screwed on the head, water shoes and well-fitting neoprene suits, our lights will pierce the darkness and silence to make way for a world as ancient as magical. The visit to the cave will be punctuated by a magnificent natural swimming pool, the time for us to discover the underwater landscape with masks and snorkels.   We will recover from our emotions and share around a meal composed of local specialties cooked in the jungle on a fire pit. Before taking the road towards the city, towards its lights and its incessant noise, a quick siesta in a hammock will mark the end of our experience in the Jungle of the Yucatan peninsula and the secret of its underground world.

Guilhem

Hello everyone, I’m Guilhem. I moved to Mexico in 2013 after traveling and living in more than 13 countries. Very quickly, I fell in love with the caves, their peace, the story they tell and their incredible importance for the jungle and the Mayan civilization, which is also fabulous. I am a passionate person who did everything to work and live from his passion. I created my company "Secret Footsteps" to continue transmitting the hidden beauty of the Maya underground world, and I will never get tired of it!
