Actun Tunichil Muknal is absolutely extraordinary. Every step of the way I found myself in disbelief of all that I was seeing and experiencing - photos do NOT do this experience justice. The caves are enormous, extensive, and full of history. The walk through the...More
But only if your family is comfortable in the water and no one is claustrophobic. I didn’t have to swim at all, but kids under 48 inches need to know how to swim the short easy crossings of the river (3x each way) and a...More
This tour was fantastic no cameras allowed but that may be what made it so great (no watching through a little screen). It starts with a small walk(s) and traversing through water to the cave entrance. Our guide brought us through the cave which consisted...More

I thought some of the Mayan details are conjecture,...More

Being able to climb a jungle gym will be far more important than being able to swim well. While the water does get deep in places, there is no current whatsoever, and the guides provide life jackets for anyone who wants them (and it might be mandatory for little kids - there weren't any kids in our group, but we saw small children in other groups, and all of the kids were wearing life jackets.)
