Actun Tunichil Mucknal

Actun Tunichil Muknal

Just saying the name 'Actun Tunichil Muknal' brings mysterious visions to mind. This showing of the Maya Underworld is not a usual visitors tour in the sense that you are not paying to walk through a cave. You are paying for the privilege of being among an untouched archeological site. Getting to the actual ritual site takes about one hour of jungle hiking, then swimming, wading and climbing in an underground river to get to the site. In respect of this sacred site rules must be followed. Shoes must be taken off at the site and it is important to wear socks through the chambers. Footsteps must be taken with great care so as to not step on and possibly crush the bones and artifacts within. Overnight tours are offered sometimes and visitors have told stories of strange noises and ghostly visions passing by and disappearing into the cave walls, leaving the observer chilled and in awe. Plunging stalactites reach down to meet jutting stalagmites and sparkling crystal glows though this grand cathedral. For those interested in cave exploration an Actun Tunichil Muknal tour is a must.
