Where Spirit and Nature Meet
A Lagoon with a Cenote, The Temple of a Goddess,
and a Dazzling Cave

Laguna Ka'an Luum
Laguna Kaan Luum is a fresh water lagoon with a cenote in it! Its pristine waters are constantly renewed by the cenote spring water welling up from its depth and bringing rich minerals including magnesium, calcim and potassium with it. Soaking in it will leave you feeling relaxed and revived for hours afterwards and you can even use the pearl white sand at its bottom for an exfolliating and rejuvinating mud bath. It's an all natural spa treatment in exquisite tropical paradise! And bring your camera because you will also find exotic birds, a boardwalk through the mangroves, and a high platform where you can climb up to admire the entire natural area. The view is breath-taking!
Set in a quiet jungle with limestone edged paths and towering ceiba trees, these Maya ruins are home to the temple of the warrior/fertility goddess Ixchel and an ancient meditation center.
You can feel a deep sense of peace as you walk through the ruins, some completely unexcavated and hiding mysteriously under tall stands of tumbled rock. Beneath your feet lies a labrynth of caves and occasionally you will find portals to this underworld beckoning you. It is a mystical place indeed!
Local Maya & Mexican Food
Enjoy typical Maya and Mexican dishes in a garden restaurant in the quaint village of Muyil.
Think spiced pork buried in the earth and smoked for hours, authentic tacos and tortas, Aztec soup, hibiscus tea, homemade lemonade, cold beer, panuchos and salbutes all served fresh and in a setting with lush tropical plants and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Uku Cuzam Cave
Uku Cuzam--the cave of the swallows--is an extraodinary example of unspoiled stalactites and stalagmites, crystal clear water, and several cave "rooms" you can walk through. It is part of a much larger cave system and its dark and watery chambers, which have recently been mapped by cave divers, speak of sacred rituals and deep earth energies.
Descending into the earth here gives you a sense of entering an ancient and magical natural cathedral. Its a place that commands hushed whispers. Its a place where time seems to be suspended and the earth feels holy again.
