Highlights

Loltún, which in Mayan means "Flor de Piedra, (this name depends on the fact that along the grotto there are patterns of flowers) is the name of unique grottos located in the south of the state that attract the attention of locals and foreigners and in which evidence of human settlements from 400 to 700 years ago has been found. The Mayans used them to provide themselves with clay, with which they made their utensils, and, also, as a religious center and refuge.

From the beginning of the tour, visitors can admire travertine formations that, due to their suggestive and capricious forms, have been baptized with peculiar names, such as "La catedral", "La cabeza", "El gran cañón", "La mazorca de maíz" "," Infante "," Pinturas","Manos negras"," El cuarto de las estalactitas"and" Trincheras "

The visit to these caves is a unique experience. The walk covers a distance of more than 700 meters of impressive rock formations.
