The tour consists of a tour through the cave and cavern system of Santa Cruz Ranch. This cave system offers guests a chance to see the best of both parts of the Maya Underworld, a dry cave to walk through and see the hundreds of stalactites and stalagmites as well as a crystal clear cenote in which to swim, float, and cool off in the refreshing waters. There is also a dock and a rope swing to play on for a bit of extra fun!

Depending on the type of tour you choose, you can make your visit to the ranch a quick exploration or you can decide to stay for the day and enjoy a delicious barbeque lunch that is grilled on site for you and your party.
