A lesser known cave, but a favorite among the staff at Blancaneaux Lodge, Offering Cave is located in the Noj Kaax Meen Elijio Panti National Park less than five miles from the resort. From the vehicle, a nice 20-minute jungle walk will bring guests to the ‘dry’ cave that is open and easy to navigate. At less than 3,000 feet long, the exploration of the cave takes two to three hours. The cave is stacked with huge Maya storage pots called ‘Ollas.’ There are also sacrificial remains, ceramics and tools left untouched since the Maya collapse at the end of the Late Classic Period. For many, the highlight of the cave is the mysterious Maya sculptures that glow amber when light is shined on them. For experienced horseback riders, it’s possible to ride to the cave in two and a half hours.
