Mayan Artifact Cave Exploration

It’s a short drive from the lodge to San Felipe Village.
We will leave the roads and hike off into the jungle for a 1 hr journey through several environs; in this forested area you’ll see several species of hardwood trees, Rosewood, Tamarind, and Santa Maria.
As we cross a few creeks we come eventually to the base of a mountain gorge. Your guide will show you several natural plants and identify areas where Mayans once lived.
Exploring further you’ll come upon a cave entrance whereby entering with our headlamps we go deep inside the mountain. At one point we climb up and down into a second chamber discovering the Mayan Artifacts. (Three large vessels which have been there for perhaps a 1,000 years).The cave also has interesting stalagmites/stalactites formations
Returning back to the Village you’ll stop for lunch at a local family home to enjoy a traditional Mayan meal.
