This place is so beautiful- cheap way to get there is by city van/bus. Lots of sun and great swimming. Rent life jackets and snorkel- nice colors of fish. Pack your lunch and a cold ? Really quite nice to visit.

We visited the cenote at 9 o clock in the morning. They forgot the switch on the lights in the biggest cenote. So we were swimming and snorkeling in the dark with a torchlight. For me a great experience, but I can imagine not everybody would like that. But the cenote itself is beautiful and not very busy. All the... More

This is the only cenote we visited during our visit to the Yucatan peninsula so I can't really comment on the price value compared to other cenotes. It was about $30 per person, with snorkel, life vest, hard hat and water shoes. This doesn't include the tip at the end for the guide. Anyway we decided to go because the... More

30 US dollars for snorkle and mask, the tour, priceless. When I got there around 9:30, only me and a great guide, Edwin. He knew his history and a cool guy. Stunning views and great experience. A must see and do visiting Playa Del Carmen.

Our visit here was so cool. We were provided hard hats (for the walk into the Cenotes, they came off when it was time to swim) life vests and flashlights. Our guide was informative and helpful. The scenery was breathtaking with bats, stalactites from above and below in the crystal clear water. There were two Cenotes, one partially open to... More

It wasn't too busy which made our experience all the more enjoyable. Our guide, Carlos was soo nice and informative he pointed out cool things and even found his friend Pancho... More

We were very excited to see a cenote while in Mexico, however didn't want spend the whole day/a lot of money doing so. This experience was just great! Well worth the money and everyone there was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our guide only spoke Spanish but our photographer was able to translate everything! After the tour we went for a... More

We only found out about this cenote thanks to trip advisor reviews, and I'm so glad we did!! We have previously visited another cenote, which at the time was great, but having visited Chaak Tun it put the other one to shame! As recommended we went after 2pm, and true enough we had the whole sink hole, guide and photographer... More
