Close to the Oxkintok ruins (south west of Merida) is the Calcehtok Caves. The caves are good but before you go you should be aware that the lighting in these caves is small torches, so visibility of the entire cave system is limited and photography is entirely reliant on your cameras flash. There is no fixed lighting like in the more popular caves. The tour guides only speak spanish. I personally think a trip to the Loltun caves would be a far, far better choice as there is proper lighting and multi lingual tour guides.
