I recently went here on an excursion with a carnival cruise. I personally thought it was the most amazing thing id ever seen. Our guide Andy was so much fun and gave us so much history about the place and the culture. The lunch we got was delicious and it was in one of the caves. All in all it... More

I visited this cenote as part of a tour with The Snorkel Shop. We went into two different cenotes; one was smaller and the other rather large (although the smaller one was still rather big). Our group consisted of five people and the staff was great in making sure that groups were kept separate to allow for a more private... More

Great cave diving experience, would recommend to anyone who has never dove caves before. Dive was very well organized, good dive masters, and was fun to meet and dive with new people, who never dove caves before.

I had never been to a cenote.....what an unexpected treat. We had been out in the heat of the day looking at chizen Itza, and were hot. To dive into this "sink hole", was about as enticing and refreshing, as it gets. GO!!

We stopped here on our way back from the Coba Ruins and really enjoyed ourselves. We rented snorkle gear and swam in the underground natural caves (there are bats flying around so beware). It is a little touristy but we did not mind since it was an easy visit from Coba or Tululm. They have fish and slider turtles in... More

Chaak Tun is close to Playa Del Carmen and is relatively unknown so it is less crowded. You take a taxi to the other side of the highway and take a ride into the jungle. the cenote is about 15 minutes from the center of Playa Del Carmen. the people are great - very professional and helpful. there are lockers...

The place is really amazing and the i suggest to ask for Santiago as a guide! He is a funny guy who gonna explain you all... More

a group of 10 of us went through with one guide. we were basically alone as a group throughout the entire tour of the caves. the water was chilly, but with a provided wetsuit on it was very refreshing. the guide (Jorge) was very funny and entertaining. it was about $30 us dollars per person.
