A fairytale world awaits the adventurous spirit of its visitors. The Riviera Maya in Mexico is home to the world’s largest system of subterranean rivers, caves and waterholes. These water holes are also called cenotes and are sacred to the Maya because they are the entrances to the Xibalba, the Mayan underworld. In addition, they still provide the largest supply of drinking water in the area. There are hundreds of cenotes around the Riviera Maya. As part of our private excursions, we stop at one or more beautiful cenotes, where you can bathe and swim in their cool, refreshing water.
