Grab a taxi and head for the cenotes! The taxi driver will wait and bring you back as well. Four of us went on this trip and I think spent about 30 USD each; well worth it. The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and swimming in the dark of the freshwater caves is a unique experience. Since these caves are created... More

This was a great place to dive. Geology and some fish life. The diving was easy and for those that have not experienced haloclines (when sea and fresh water mix) it is a Must!

Definitely worth going! Caution: very steep stairs and rocks overhead. Water is really cold! Bats in caves and will fly about, especially if you shine your flashlight on them. It is an incredible adventure!

$20 USD if you have your own equipment, $30 if you don't. You get a guide and a 2 hour tour of the amazing cenotes on the property. We came on a Sunday afternoon and were the only 2 people we saw. Our guide George was funny, informational and overall a great guy to show us the amazing caves. For... More

Such an amazing experience. We did 3 or 4 cenotes swims... all just snorkel, no scuba, but this was by far the best. If you can, ask for Carlos... he was the most sensational tour guide. Very thorough and caring "watch your head!" and super knowledgable. Great experience...

I had read about this particular cenote prior to our vacation to Playa del Carmen the week of 08/30-9/6/14, and it didn't disappoint! The water is a little chilly at first, but doable without a wet suit.. Really cool. The stalagtites and stalagmites were massive, the guide was great, and it really was one of the most interesting and unique... More
