Eco-Tour description NOHOCH also known as Jungle Crossing
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 all-terrain vehicles.

Frocenote nohoch an unforgetable expiriancem 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 flying!
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 civilized world.

pacchen  also know as eco-tour mayan encountareTour description PAC-CHEN also known as Mayan Encounter
To see the real Mexico you must leave the town and traffic far behind and join us for an expedition into the heart of the Yucatan jungle where we will show you a Mexico that most tourists, and many Mexicans, never see.

You will be picked up at your hotel and taken on an historical journey that spans 1500 years of Mayan culture. Our first stop is the recently-opened ancestral city of Coba, an archaeological site hidden deep inside the rain forest of the south-eastern Yucatan, where we will guide you through the history that pertains to this site in particular and to the region in general.

Walking through these verdant green vegetation-covered ruins one literally feels the ancient rhythms of this once strong city-state, and climbing the Nohoch Muul temple (the highest in the state) one can truly appreciate the pristine beauty and immeasurable vastness of the surrounding sub-tropical rain forest. Leaving here we penetrate deeper into the jungle to the authentic Mayan village of Pac Chen, a self-sufficient community of approximately 100 indigenous people living next to an integral part of the region's lagoon system.

Together with the locals we walk through their forest, learning of the local fauna and flora, enjoy a zip-line crossing over one of their incredibly beautiful open cenotes (sinkholes), rappel 45 ft down into and swim in the sacred cenote Balaam Kin, canoe and swim on their lagoon, and next to the same lagoon enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by the local women.
Entering their homes in the jungle one is able to truly appreciate how these people live and survive far from the "civilized" lifestyles that we are accustomed to. Mayan Encounter therefore offers a great combination of history, adventure and culture all in one adventure-filled day.
