Although almost everyone now offers trips here, as the original and best guide to the cave, David Simpson will carefully and responsibly show you the astonishing Maya artefacts in the cave; a trip also usually includes a visit to Green Hills Butterfly Ranch. DSC06302
From the entrance of the cave, David will guide you seven miles into the cave system created by volcanic action over millions of years… davids2a

In Maya mythology, Xibalba, roughly translated as “place of fear”, is the name of the underworld, ruled by Maya Death Gods and their helpers. In Yucatec, it was known as Metnal. In the 16th-century Verapaz, the entrance to Xibalba, was traditionally held to be a cave in the vicinity of Cobán, Guatemala. DSC06302

According to some of the K’iche’ Maya presently living in the vicinity, the area is still associated with death. Cave systems in nearby Belize have also been referred to as the entrance to Xibalba. DSC06303

Another physical incarnation of the road to Xibalba as viewed by the K’iche’ is the dark rift which is visible in the Milky Way.
