  • Watch the history of the Yucatan come to life in legendary cenotes.

  • Blend beauty and action by canyoning through underground caves.


Swim in the insanely beautiful cenotes of the Yucatan and enjoy a guided day program of canyoning! Beginning from Merida, we will head to the iconic cenotes of Cuzama to explore some of the most fascinating, historic, and fun spots to experience the thrill of Mexico’s underground landscape!

Cenotes are natural recessions in bedrock, like sinkholes, that expose the groundwater below. These water-filled caverns are a symbolic feature of Mexico’s geology on the Yucatan Peninsula, beckoning tourists and adventurers from across the globe. Mayan cultures used them for ritualistic purposes and they have long been used as a source of reaching fresh water in the jungle.

This is your opportunity to enjoy a canyoning program through these compelling landforms. Beginning from Merida in the northwest of Yucatan, we will head to Cuzama and visit some of the incredible cenotes throughout the region. These caves, considered some of the most beautiful in the country, have pools of glistening water with sunlight trickling into them – an evocative sight for anyone lucky enough to experience it firsthand.

Mayan civilization developed around these incredible and sacred land features, often incorporating them into religious practices and using them as a site of worship. In many instances they include long approaches through underground corridors. The reward: clear water, delicately balanced ecosystems of plant and animal life, and the sheer profundity of the cenotes.

We will travel via truck to the cenotes, departing from Merida around 9:00am to guarantee a full day program. We will visit at least two of the gorgeous caverns, aiming for the most rewarding and satisfying. They vary in shape and size, and each has its own particular features. The underwater gorges will provide us with ample time to swim through them, admiring the geology and history along the way.

Bring your camera and take plenty of pictures to keep these memories alive long after you leave the cenotes. We will be swimming, so you should also bring a swimsuit, towel, comfortable clothes, and a hat. I recommend also bringing insect repellent and sunscreen for utmost comfort while enjoying this program.

We will be actively exploring the cenotes, so a general fitness level is required to get the most from your program. Everyone is encouraged to join, as it is open and accessible to all. This is a perfect opportunity to relish a heart-pumping activity while admiring the beautiful and unique world of Cuzama and the Yucatan. I will ensure we have a safe, fulfilling, and all-around fun time in one of the most miraculous places on Earth!

So what are you waiting for? Book this unforgettable day trip to the Yucantan NOW and have a blast on a guided canyoning program in stunning Cuzama!

We can also switch gears and try a rock climbing program in Basaseachic, Chihuahua!

What People are Saying about Mexico Adventure Guides-


Daniel and his partner Alex did a great job guiding us, and helping with all the logistics, especially transportation to and from the climb. Alex was a real pleasure to talk with, learn from, and show us the mountain. Thank you, for a great experience!

Daniel was kind enough to pick me up promptly at the airport when I arrived. we drove straight to amecameca and bought a few supplies, we then drove to Popo park and set up camp. Daniel gave a class on crampons, walking sticks and the ice pick and then it was time to sleep and prepare for the early morning hike start. we set off around 0330 and reached the recluso at about 15,500 feet. it was an amazing experience with wonderful views. Thank you Daniel, Alejandro and Yasmin!
