Experience more than a cave! Imagine a world alive and imbued with sacred power divided into three domains: the starry arch of heaven; the stony middle world of earth made to flower and bear fruits; and, the dark waters of the underworld below, Xibalba. A short swim through the crystal blue water will lead you into this amazing realm.  Then working your way through a breakdown leads you in to the main water passage, were you get to enjoy amazing geological formation like sparkling stalactites, stalagmites, and flow stones.  This hidden chamber promises to reveal ancient secrets and geological processes that have helped to shape the Mayan Underworld known as Xibalba.   We are referring back in time when our ancestors believed that only priests could have ventured in and communicate with their Gods or ancestors through ritual and ceremonies.
