My family and I took a cruise to Cozumel Mexico where we took the underwater river tour on the mainland and it was out of this world. Although the water temperature was very cold, somewhere around 60 to 65 degrees, it still was extraordinary. We went to the smaller cave to swimming in the river and get cooled off, where... More

We visited Chaak Tun during a western cruise and we had a blast! The tour guides were knowledgeable and lots of fun! The caves and underground rivers were spectacular and the water was crystal clear. The tour provided an authentic lunch afterward, and allowed us time to ask any questions about the area. They provide life vests and goggles, so... More

Fantastic. Virgin cenote without the crowds so maybe I shouldn't tell. We asked the concierge, Carlos at the Playa Palms and he set us up with a private guide, George. We snorkeled through the cenotes, saw the bats, incredible birds, and local jungle. George is extremely knowledgeable. The tour was adventurous and very reasonable without the lines and crowds. All... More

Although we went to this cenote without a guide, it was fascinating — the sights, the sounds and the smells! The water was cool and refreshing and we could see and hear bats. The food was also wonderful and home-cooked. Highly recommend it.

This was a very unique adventure and to be able to swim through the Cenote was very cool. The water is clear and refreshing. The rock formations are pretty amazing. We were a little scared of other reviews that said they saw lots of spiders and snakes, we are not fans of either and we saw none. So we will... More

We did buy our own equipment and went there again and this time did buy the entry. It was two dry cenotes areas just for walking in (like caves) and 2 wet ones for swimming. Only one of the swimmable ones was interesting as it looked tiny from outside and had depths that you could see inside. Nothing super beautiful... More

We did this after the Chitzen Itsa, so the ''refreshing'' water was great. Very beautiful as the sun streamed through the hole above the cave/sink hole

The cave entrance is beautifully located in the jungle just outside Playa del Carmen. The gentleman who greeted us at the counter was super nice and told us how the cave tour worked. Our guide, a cool young guy named David, knew everything about those caves and could swim like a fish. The tour only took about two hours but... More

We all loved this place, 2adults, 14yo, 6yo. Beautiful water. Awesome caves. Bats were not a bother. Wonderful lunch in cave. Would definitely go back.
