Awesome guided tour of the cenotes and caves. Felix was a great guide who made the experience very enjoyable, and looked after my wife who is not a confident swimmer, as well as pushing me to try new things as I am a good swimmer. Beautiful natural underground caverns with stalactites and stalagmites. Must see, highly recommended!

Its a great experience to visit this cenote. Its not so crouwded with tourists so that made it even beter because its... More

My husband and I had a great time exploring Chaak Tun. We decided to go last minute as Rio Secreto was too expensive for us. We are so glad we made that choice! Chaak Tun was an affordable and fun outing. We drove there from Playa del Carmen (10-15 minutes) around 1 in the afternoon and there were very few... More

I have never seen such clear water. You can imagine the Mayans gathering water from here. Beautiful.

Got to the cenote area early to avoid the crowd. My guide was from Diversity Diving in Playa Del Carmen. She cave dove in her spare time. Very good diver, as I am a cavern diver myself. When we did our surface interval, others were in the cenote. Then when we dove again they were out. If you have dove... More

I've never been to a cenote, but this one was fantastic. Our guide was Abel, and he was incredibly welcoming and very helpful with my wife (slightly scared at first). The place is not a disneyland by any means and is far more authentic. The formations and cave exploring was amazing (watch your head). There are 2 caves, and you... More

This was my first visit to a cenote and this is a closed cenote that means that you travel entirely underground. The company provides wetsuits, goggles, life vests, and flashlights. Our guide was Felix who is very knowledgable about the science of caves and the history of the Mayan culture. We had an older individual with a knee problem and... More

With all the cenote choice in the PDC area, we were not sure which to choose. If you are staying in PDC, you could not ask for a better or more-convenient cenote to visit. We had a rental car, so it was super easy. We just got on Juarez and drove until we found it. Easy parking. We had our... More
