  • Actun Khan Caves; nothing from the other world for the light version, there is a long journey that takes you two kilometers you have to go with a guide and you have to be in good physical condition. There's no light inside the cavern, so you're totally dependent on your flashlight.

  • The site is very interesting if you are really into Maya culture but is unkeep. There are few workers .
  • If you are in Flores, and looking for something interesting to do visiting these caves is a great option. It’s just a short tuk tuk ride there. The caves are pretty extensive but easy to navigate through. You’ll find bats, and we also saw a couple of cave spiders. Outside the caves are some nice garden areas to hang out for a bit. Afterward you can just walk a few miles back to the island or if you start walking you’ll find a cheap ride back pretty easy.
