Balankanche Yucatan Travel Guide

BALANKANCHE TRAVEL GUIDE

Cost

The tour costs 50 pesos (about US$5) per person. Don’t forget to tip the guide, who earns no salary but lives on gratuities alone.

Schedule

Tours are available on the hour 9 to 5, accompanied by a light and sound show. Normally six people are required for a tour, however, if not enough guests show up, the guide will usually take you along and play the tape in the language of your choice (English, Spanish or French). The tour is impressive in any language, however; it’s the caves themselves that are magical.
