Chuck Kay's Flight
You will find several bodies of fresh water hidden in the depths of the jungle and flowing slowly in the Xel-Há river. The Ixchel Grotto is a beautiful example of a magical setting where you can get in contact with nature.
From a higher perch you can fly towards the inside of the grotto on a rope, mimicking the flight of the Pelican, Chuc Kay. With a bounce off this stone you can dive into the refreshing blue water of the lagoon. The flight of Chuc Kay is less than a ten minute walk from the starting point of the river, or twenty minutes from the south side of the floating bridge.
According to the Mayan legend, the Pelican called Chuc Kay is the Guardian of Air. This charming and friendly bird is native of the Yucatan Peninsula. Have fun with this great activity and feel the adrenaline rush of flying over water, mimicking the flight of the Pelican… fly like Chuc Kay!
