Paddle through and explore the mystical Barton Creek Cave, an ancient site used by the Mayans for burial and ceremonial purposes. The jade-colored water runs for 6.4 km (4 mi) inside the caves surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites. You can spend time paddling for more than an hour with a spotlight discovering rock flows and cathedral chambers. Observe Mayan pottery shards and the bone remains of more than 28 humans dating back to 200 CE. Watch for bats inside the caves as well.
