In an age of mystical ceremonies and indigenous cultures that rule the Americas, the Mayan priests turned hidden caves into centers of spiritual rites and sacrificial offerings. Enter now, if you dare, the world which was believed to be the ENTRANCE TO THE UNDERWORLD… the Realm … the Domain … The Kingdom of their God… XIBALBA.
This incredible adventure starts off with a challenging 40-minute hike through the onsite jungle. You will walk the actual steps that Mayan Shaman walked as they entered Xibalba.
Feel the presence of the ancient Gods as you explore spectacular and awe-filled crystal chambers that hold 2,000-year-old ceremonial fire pits, still containing charcoal and ash, pottery, bowls, relics, altars, wall carvings, glyph writings and actual skeletons of sacrificial victims still lying among the ruins of this cave.
Our guides will show you the relics with as much care and precision as possible in order to conserve the integrity of this sacred spot in the rainforest. While you respectfully tiptoe through the ruins, you will be carried back to a time when the ancient religion of the time was the dominating force for live, weather, crops and even health. This is one of the most cultural adventures located on property at Caves Branch!
