This was so much fun, and only it's short drive from the resorts. The guide starts by providing wetsuits, goggles, snorkel, hard hat, and waterproof flashlight. Then a short walk/tour through the trees, you get to meet a shaman and get his blessing before going into the cave. Once in more info on the place, you get splash around for... More

Visiting a cenote is a MUST-DO if you are in Playa del Carmen! We visited Chaak Tun after the recommendation of one of the staff members are our hotel. We had an hour and half tour with Abel. He was an incredible guide who was very knowledgeable. It was an unforgettable experience. My only regret was not having a camera... More

My wife said she felt like she was on an episode of the bachelor. We showed up with a guide, and we were the only ones allowed in for our time slot. We entered though a hole in the ground with a tree log ladder. It was lighted inside, so we were able to enjoy the cave and the water.... More

Cenote was easy to get too and not very far from downtown Playa del Carmen. You will pass some stretches of land that have some squatters living on it. Apperently there is an affordable housing shortage in PdC area, and this is the only alternitive for some. The Cenote has a privet swimming hole kind of feel to it. They... More
