The Pempem cave is located on the Green Hills property.
Unfortunately access is difficult and quite dangerous. For
this reason, the cave is not open to the public. Nevertheless,
we wanted to share this piece of information with you. The
cave was mapped in 2001, by the same team that mapped the
Creek Cave. It was mapped in an effort to find sources
for the water in the Barton Creek Cave. However, the Pempem
cave and the Barton Creek Cave do not appear to be linked.
on this survey is available (large file!). The word "Pempem"
stands for "Butterfly" in the local Yucatec (Masewal)
