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

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...
