Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave

Inside this cave, visitors will be overwhelmed with this archaeological site that includes skeletons, which have been calcified and radiate the appearance of crystal.

Keeping with the Mayan culture, one would discover how the Mayans altered several formations in order to produce altars so they could conduct their offerings. Viewing the society of the Mayan culture via this cave is a tourist attraction unlike any other.

Any archaeological buff or fan of Indiana Jones would enjoy this cave immensely, but it is not for younger children.
