Went with a group via taxi not expecting to have to pay for a guide - Felix was amazing though, really knowledgeable and aware of the needs of the group. Caves were amazing and although I was nervous, it ended up being a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This is a must see. Be sure they don't put you with a guide that doesn't speak your language because there are so many interesting things to learn. I had Felix as a guide and he was great. You can tell he loves sharing his extensive knowledge of the cenotes (there are actually 3 in the tour.

I like this place so much. At first it was a little bit scary to go down but I was so brave and I went to swim. It was worth it.

We went to Chaak Tun on April 20th, 2015, got there around 2pm as suggested by other reviewers. We drove there in our rental car, it was about 12 miles outside of Playa. There's a divided highway most of the way, then the road jogs where it narrows down to a two lane road. Shortly after that, you'll see some... More

Our guide Ricardo was very knowledgeable and gave us a good insight of Mayan culture. He went the extra mile to provide us a very good experience to remember. A must if you like this kind of tour.

Abel was a great tour guide. He made things fun and spoke great english. We went around 12:30 and were the only ones, so we got a private tour. They give you everything included in the price (locker, snorkel mask, wet suit and water shoes). Credit cards accepted. You're in the water most of the time, so bring an underwater... More

We had a lazy breakfast and decided to try and get out on a tour but found all of them booked. We were hoping to check a cenote out. So, I asked if all the tours and all of the cenotes were all truly "booked". It was about noon and I just couldn't believe there was no possible way to... More

We had a great time checking out chaak tun. Alex our tour guide was great. A lady in our group was feeling a little uneasy about enter the cenote, but alex calmly escorted her in the water and guided her around.....she seemed to have a great time after that. The cenote are beautiful and all the gear you need is... More

Wow, we had such an amazing experience swimming in the cenotes. The main reason we came to Riviera Maya for our honeymoon, to see underground rivers! The pictures do not do them justice, our tour guide ABEL was really good, he was well spoken, took us to see many extra cool spots and helped guide us easily so we didn't... More
