Calcehtok Caves

If you want to include an intrepid adventure in your vacation plans, the caves of Calcehtok are just the right place. They are located in the municipality of Opichén, Yucatán and nearby there is also the archaeological site of Oxkintok.

Its name means in Mayan: deer neck stone (cal, neck; ceh, deer; tok, stone or flint). The name Calcehtok was given by the locals due to a stone carved with the representation of a deer’s neck, which was found in the place. in the caves

This tour is recommended for all those who like to spend time climbing and exploring underground paths, as the caves of Calcehtok have a very wide extension and there are various types of routes, for experts, beginners and advanced.

Any option of the tour covers the main places, only the paths change in level of difficulty depending on the one you choose.

We strongly recommend you wear denim clothes and non-slip shoes, not sandals or bare feet, as the caves are quite slippery.

To keep in mind in the caves
  • The guides are expert connoisseurs of the caves, so they are the only ones authorized to guide you inside the cave, because it is very easy to become disoriented and get lost inside. The cost of the tour also includes a headlamp so that you can have your hands free. At the end of the tour there is water and soap available to wash your hands.
  • Do consider that the clothes you decide to wear could be torn and dirty at the end of the tour. You can also take water with you to avoid dehydration that is likely to happen inside the caves.
  • It is a route not suitable for people who are afraid of narrow, dark, closed places, or afraid of bats.
  • There is no dangerous fauna inside the place, so it is quite safe.
