Unforgettable experience to swim in very refreshing low oxygen water. You need to be a some good sort of swimmer or take support.

Absolutely worth it, this is an experience you'll never forget. You get to swim in an ancient ruin underground. They provide everything except a swimsuit & Towel. They even have wetsuits and swim shoes.

Chaak Tun is an amazing underground freshwater system just a short taxi-ride away from Playa del Carmen. The facility supplies wet suits, snorkel masks, and underwater flashlights. Our guide, Ricardo, was entertaining and very informative, describing the geological formation of the cave system in an amusing way. He is compassionate and understanding of his guests worries of the unknown. The... More

Brilliant excursion, did this visit in conjunction with a morning on the ATVs with friends and was a great way of getting rid of the dust and dirt, the young lady who took us down was very well informed and certainly knew her stuff

I was scared to try this and my kids really wanted to - so we did it and it was the highlight of our trip. Cold water - but you get used to it and you will never experience anything like it!!

It's nice that it is not that touristic, an interesting experience if you've never been to a cenote (this was our case). Try to go early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the ppl that come from cruise ships. Also, tips are expected, but I guess that would be aplliable to most of Playa del Carmen.

Typical Cenotes - basic but adequate facilities. Awesome watery caves, friendly fun knowledgeable guides. Drove there ourselves and paid 360pesos for 1.5 hour tour including equipment. Only a 15min drive out of Playa del Carmen and well worth the effort.

We wanted to visit another cenote but didn't want a long bus ride, so we took a taxi to this place right on the outskirts of Playa. We arrived around 10:30, and we were the only ones there...but a busload of cruise ship passengers were starting their tour just as we were finishing, so go early! This isn't a free... More

My wife and I had our honeymoon in Playa Del Carmen in August 2015. We really wanted to experience a Cenote and were torn between a couple different options that we found. We found Cenote Chaak Tun to be a great value and bring in the great experiences of snorkeling in a cenote as well as the experience of going... More
