Actun Tunichil Muknal Caves The Actun Tunichil Muknal Caves are located in the Cayo District’s Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. They were once used by the ancient Maya and evidence of their life can still be seen within the caves. In addition to skeletal remains, pottery and other Maya artifacts, stalactite and stalagmite also line the cave walls. Guided tours through the caves are available and although this adventure may be challenging for some, there are certain parts that can be attempted by anyone, regardless of their fitness level. A visit to these caves is a visit with history. Photo Credit: Bernard DUPONT
