One of the first adventure tourism attractions developed in Tekax municipality is the Chocantes Grotto, the place is 5 minutes away from the city’s historic center and is on the first hills neighboring the tourist city. In this place, full of small natural hills in the land, there is a new world to be discovered underground with natural formations of karst rock.

Such whimsical shapes of nature form one of the most beautiful grottoes with its stalactite and stalagmite formations, which is why this grotto is also known as crystals grotto, where numerous adventure and scientific expeditions have taken place, and have been documented mostly by Yucatecan and French specialists.

It has an easy access, inside you can see traces of the grotto use in pre-Columbian times, as ancient Maya people have left evidence like clay benches, pot scraps, and other wonders waiting for the most adventurous tourists.

In the surface of the grotto, you can feel the adrenaline while you go through the zip-line, equipped with a helmet and a harness to safeguard your life; you can also practice rappel at Gruta del Toro (Bull grotto). An ideal place for the souvenir picture, with a view to the City of Tekax is at the wooden tourist look-out with panoramic view.

This experience is complete with food, previous reservation, prepared by a traditional cook with a hundred percent Yucatecan menu.

It includes the use of common facilities, such as parking lot, restrooms, hydration, dressing rooms, harness, lamps, gloves, adventure equipment in general.
