Hidden gem. Very interesting tour in the underground cenotes. You swim and see the stalagmites and stalactites. You swim through them. They give you life jacket and mask. The water is a little bit cold,so we did wear the swimming t-shirts. The tour takes about 45 min. Our guide was very knowledgable. But don't leave after it! Or if you... More

We wanted an excursion for our friends coming to our destination wedding in Riviera Maya and found Kantun Chi. We booked private transportation and bought tickets online ahead of time to save 20%. We only did the basic, 4 cenote self-tour and it was a great idea! Everyone had a great time and noone had done anything like it! Pros... More

I probably shouldn't share too much about this place, as it is much less popular than its neighbors Xel-Ha, Xpore, and Xcaret. However, this is one place I would not miss. As a disclaimer, I will say, we paid the premium price ($78US) for all elements of this place which include: 1: Cave and Underground River 2: All Cenotes 3:... More

Kantun Chi is located just a few miles south of PDC along the main highway. There is a gravel road that leads into the main entrance area. If you are driving there is parking available at the main building, if you catch a collectivo from PDC it will drop you off at the road leading into Kantun Chi and the... More

We went on a Monday afternoon in November and mostly had the place to ourselves. The staff was friendly and helpful. The walk to the cenotes is relatively short, but the foliage is so dense you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle. After swimming in cenotes 4 and 3, we took the underground river tour with a... More

Underwater cave tours were amazing. A little claustrophobic in some areas, but over all a great experience!

We only visited the Cenotes because we were with a Baby, couldn't do the river tour. The cenotes are very beautiful! They advertise a train to take you to the hardest cenote, but it was not working. They also have hammock and chairs along the way but there where so many mosquitos that we could not enjoy them. It was... More

A unique experience, this place was a gem! if you've never been to a cenote, this is the place to go! There are 4 cenotes and a underground cave. The cave was definitely the highlight, but cenote #3 was equally amazing with such a beautiful view and quite a few fish to swim/snorkel with. I enjoyed the walk through the... More

Showed up very late in the afternoon, around 3 ish when they were closing the kitchen at 3.30 and the whole place at 5. We were met by smiles and a very friendly man named Oscar who proceeded to show us through the possible options. We chose to go the more expensive way and go to all of the cenotes... More
