Our experience was awesome. The guide, Felix, was super knowledgeable and explained everything about the cenote in great detail. He was also very careful not to push any inexperienced swimmers out of their comfort zone. If you are using a taxi to get to Chaak Tun, I would suggest asking them to return to pick you up, so you don't... More

We decided to go see the cenotes but weren't sure what to expect. After a very professional and fun tour by Felix we can confidently say this is the best tour in Playa Del Carmen area.

6 of us arrived to Chak Tun around 3:30pm, only to find out that it was already closed. I told the gentleman at the door that we thought hours were from 9am - 5pm. He said that that day (Saturday) they had few visitors so they decided to close early. I told him there was 6 of us, that we... More

Lovely views whilst underground of the cenote (sinkhole ) with stalactites and stalagmites plus bats flying around near the roof top and daylight shining in. Lots of people swimming in the cold water!

The highlight of my trip with Ricardo as a guide. This tour is $360 pesos and includes private guide wetsuits masks, locker and water shoes. The supplied flashlight is dim so if you have a dive light bring it! You can ride a bike from town, we rented a cab for $120 pesos, takes you right there. Best to arrange... More

This is the first Cenote my husband and I have every been to, so I can only base our experience on this one, but it was amazing! We took a taxi to the Cenote from our hotel. The fauna & natural beauty of the place was breathtaking! It was not far from Playa del Carmen. I read other reviews that... More

We wanted to experience the cenotes while visiting Playa del Carmen. We chose Chaak Tun because it was conveniently located and reasonably priced. We expected to have a good time, but we ended up having an absolutely wonderful experience! The cenote was even better than anticipated, and our guide, Ricardo, was fabulous. Not only was he extremely knowledgable, he's a... More

Disclaimer: I've never been on a cenote tour before so I have really no comparison. However, to speak on the attraction itself, it was amazing! The tour lasted approximately 2-3 hours, with about a little more than an hour in the water in the cave. The water was cool when you first went in but you got used to it,... More

Fantastic place to visit -- could spend days wandering about. The spectacular" is exactly that, although I must admit that I enjoyed the old version a little more than the newer version
