Alux Restaurant and Lounge

These caves were used by the ancient Maya as a backup to atmospheric phenomena and, especially, for their connections with the underworld. One of these mystical places is the “Alux” abode of magical beings called Aluxes small, big guards who are part of this amazing culture.

Alux is a magic cave, garden of shining stalactites and stalagmites colors which has been waiting thousands of years to be discovered.
