Lost in the Jungle, El Zotz - 2 days

  • Tour Description

    This camping tour in El Zotz ruins is a common hiking trip where you get lost in the jungle.

    What will you find in El Zotz? The bat caves: every night, the bats make their grand escape at sunset. 1000s of bats escape the cracks and crevasses to venture into the night sky in search of insects.
