This was my 1st time swimming in a true cenote so I don't have anything to compare it to but my experience was amazing! I loved that for a price of $450 pesos you received snorkeling gear, wetsuit, locker and a personal guide. Mario was our guide and he did a great job telling us about the history of the... More

The place consists of about a 2 hr tour. Our guide answered our questions and all together it was a new and fun experience. We did it with our children (three and a five year old) and I felt safe and excited. Even my 79 year old father-in-law explored the cenote for the first time with extra help from the... More

wow, what a great adventure. I went with a good friend but we saw couples and even one very young child enjoying it. You have to be comfortable going into cold water in complete darkness for a few minutes but when you get to the point of light its really incredible. Be prepared to swim in small caves with plenty...

My friend and I stopped by Chaak Tun on the way to the airport in the hopes that we'd see some nice caves and get to take a dip in the water in a short amount of time. I didn't think we'd be able to see so much in our time there, but our guide Abel showed us the cave... More

I had the most amazing time at Chaak Tun, costs 30USD but this gets you a guide taking you through the caves. I had Abel and he was a great English speaker and explained all the formations and techniques for moving through the caves in great detail. I was alone so got a really great tour as there was only...

This cenote experience is amazing. We went in the afternoon and we had the whole place to ourselves. Our guide Felix was so knowledgeable. He taught us about Mayan culture and everything you ever wanted to know about cenote formation. We recommend you visit in the afternoon as it is usually very quiet and really gives you such a special... More

We didn't really know what we're getting into, but we wanted to go to a cenote and we were staying in playa del Carmen, so it was close by. It ended up being $54 U.S. (950 pesos) for the two of us to go on the two hour tour. Our guide was Abel and he was great!! He took us... More

Did a RC shore excursion, worth every penny. Bring an underwater camera and your swimsuit. They provide water shoes and life vests. You will swim between caves, requires some exertion and not good for people with limited mobility. After we ate a Mayan style meal in one of the caves, then a Tequila tasting, and sale. We never felt a... More

We have been to many cenotes in Mexico and everyone is different. This one is pretty much all underground. It was so beautiful, the water is so clear and the formations are incredible. We had Felipe and he was an awesome guide with so much experience in diving and cenotes.
