Magical underground aquamarine kingdom.

Small friendly enterprise, enthusiastic and safety-oriented guide. Great for the whole family and an easy trip from Playa del Carmen.

Man, it's funny to come here to Tripadvisor to read the reviews, and see the name of our tour guide Felix all over them. Felix really is the man! Believe the hype! My wife and I showed up on our way from Tulum to Cancun, and dropped in for a quick tour/snorkel of Chaaktun. We **ALMOST** didn't go, and I'm... More

Our tour of Chaak Tun cavernas and cenotes was beyond words! From the time we got there, about 8:30AM, our guide, Felix, so full of knowledge and information about the Mayan culture, led us for almost 3 hours on a tour that moved me to the core. Honestly one of the most Amazing, Peaceful, Calming, EXCITING and UNBELIEVABLE experiences in... More

Advise that website is not clear. It cost around $35 to do this with a guide. Rodrigo was great and knew the caves well. We had a group of 11 from 22 - 70 years old. There's a lot of walking so know before you go.

Water is clean and cool. The 2 cenotes are very natural in setting. Beautiful on a clear day. If you want to spend a day with denotes, i recommend Chak Tun and Dos Ojos. You will get the beauty below the water in Dos Ojos and the beauty above water in the caves at Chak Tun. We went in the... More

Water was cold but worth it. Much deeper than it looks if you take off the life jacket and dive down a bit, huge rock formations and clean clear fresh water.

Do not go without a guide, or you will miss 90% of the place. I was fortunate and met Manny at the motorcycle rental place at 6th and 10th st.. this guy arranged for a private tour and transportation to take me there for 35.00 USD. It was his 80th visit, he knew the caverns like the back of his... More

My boyfriend and I went on the 4x4 jeeps and caverns trip while on a carnival cruise. To be honest I was a little skeptical about it at first and what really sold me on it was that we were going to be driving our very on jeeps. This trip was so much fun, it started with a ferry ride... More
