FROM PHOCÉA PLAYA DEL CARMEN
If you are in the search for a popular touristic place full of people, this tour is not for you. We will take you where almost nobody else has gone and nobody else will take you.
We will visit some Mayan ruins in the middle of the jungle, where it has taken over the whole place in its entire splendor. An ancient Mayan site where only a few people stop to admire nature. Here we will learn about the production of the famous melipone honey, made by the Mayan bees, invaluable for the locals.
After this visit we will go to one of the most decorated cenotes in the area; the huge stalactites reflect in the water with an unsettling quietness, here we can refresh ourselves in the water.
The Phocea Mexico team rates this as one of the most beautiful cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula, after having explored hundreds of water wells since 12 years ago.
Later we will have lunch with our friend Chucho; where his wife Daisy will cook delicious dishes for us and if we are lucky we will be able to play an epic football match with the kids in the neighborhood.
We will visit a dry cave where for about 2 or 3hrs you will discover one of the most beautiful in the area, but forgotten by many (to our advantage): here we will find pots, paintings (hand prints) and prehistoric walls; (yes prehistoric, not only prehispanic, proof of this are the stalagmites), we will find rooms fully decorated with thousands of stalactites, stalagmites, columns, curtains and concretions some more beautiful than others. The access to this cave is via mountain bike through the jungle on a 2km road.
On this day is very likely we wont see any other tourist. These millennial caves have a great archeological and anthropological value.
