Join us on a unique and exciting expedition that will take
you on a journey of discovery into some of the most breathtaking natural
wonders in Mexico. You will be picked up at your hotel and taken to a
jungle location where you will board our Mercedes Benz Unimog 4x4
From there we venture into the heart of the jungle and visit Rancho San
Felipe, a small Mayan family community where the Nohoch Nah Chich cenote
system is located. Here we'll take you on an unforgettable snorkeling
adventure into the fresh waters of this, the longest underground river
system in the world.
With your underwater flashlights and snorkel gear, that we supply, you
will be amazed at the unsurpassable beauty of the stalactite and
stalagmite formations above and below this crystal-clear water. The
water is so clear in this system that swimming actually feels like
Leaving here we cross the ranch to "Heavens Gate", another entrance to
this beautiful underground river system, and enter to appreciate another
perspective on this incredible natural wonder. Returning to the ranch a
delicious Mexican lunch will be waiting for us, a typical Mayan dish
prepared with local ingredients.
After lunch we will allow you the opportunity to get to know the ranch
and it's inhabitants, a small Mayan family that have lived in this
remote jungle location for the last 30 years.
Leaving the ranch in our trucks we continue our expedition to the
virtually untouched bay of Punta Soliman, where we enjoy a gentle kayak
trip out to the reef system.
On arrival at the reef we get wet and lead you on a snorkeling tour that
allows you the opportunity to appreciate the spectacular corals, sponges
and tropical fish of the Mexican Caribbean.
Jungle Crossing thus offers an action-packed day that combines 4x4
trekking, jungle, Caribbean sea, underground river systems, snorkeling,
kayaking and an encounter with a Mayan culture living far from our
