If you're looking for a true 'off the beaten track' adventure then the Chicoy cave is for you. Virtually no tourists make it here but if you do you'll very likely be privy to a traditional Mayan religious ceremony as you wander through the caves and out into the surrounding rainforest. A very special place.

It is outside of the city so it can be tricky to get to but worth it. Ask around for tour operators or team up with some other travelers to take a taxi or Uber.

The Cave of Chicoy is not like the other caves that can be found in the country, although it has, like them, stalagmites and stalactites. This cave is known for being a sacred place of ancient civilizations and a current Mayan ceremonial center. Therefore, if you enter and there is a ceremony, you must ask permission to photograph it. Do not forget to bring a flashlight.

Impressive cave located in a cloud forest. It has been used by different indigenous groups as a ceremonial room. It is a large room and above all super high, with stalactites and stalagmites of a great height. Upon entering it is quite dark but once you get inside you will see that it has great natural lighting with an opening in one side of the roof.
