A must see when visiting the maya riviera! The cenotes were absolutely beautiful and amazing. There weren't too many people and we spent the whole afternoon swimming and exploring! We definitely recommend paying the extra money to go into the underground cave system, it was huge and some of the rock formations were over a million years old. It was... More

The review below said "bring cash"; we had no trouble using a credit card. We chose the $79 package and are glad for it, While the initial group was about 15 through the cave and underground river, Eric ended up being our personal guide to the (now) 5 cenotes. A local guy proud of his Mayan heritage, Eric spent a... More

First, make sure you bring cash, as they do not take credit cards. Lots of cash, as this is pretty expensive. However it was worth it. There is an underground river which you visit with a guide. They provide all equipment - helmet, shoes, life vest. There is a steep ladder to get into the river. The water is coolish... More

This was my second trip to Kantun Chi in the past two years and I was so glad to return! The reception center provides life vests, helmets and water shoes along with lockers and clean changing rooms. From there we met our friendly and extremely knowledgable guide Erick. The cenotes are stunningly beautiful and the property is pristine and there... More

We paid for the full experience which for a family of four runs around 300 USD depending on the age of your kids. It sounds like a lot given this is a half day excursion but if you like spending money on experiences, you will not be disappointed. Our guide Oscar was wonderful. The underground river was incredible but our... More

Since we were pressed for time, we opted for the self-guided tour of the cenotes. We visited five different cenotes. All but one were very beautiful and we took some amazing photos! The water is so pristine and clear! I'd definitely recommend taking goggles (snorkel?) with you and don't forget biodegradable sunblock so as not to hurt the ecosystem. There... More

The underground river is incredible. Take the mask with you and dive around. The cenotes are pretty, the best of the first 4 is the last one #4 (didn't see #5) - it is most secluded and the biggest one. Great facilities and not particularly crowded.

There are 5 cenotes at which you can swim or just hang out. However, the real attraction is the incredible cave tour , an underground river full of stalagmites. Approx $69 but worth every penny. Only 4 people in our group and the tour leader, Jesus, was knowledgeable and helpful- even took our pictures The staff are really helpful. When... More

We, four thirty-something guys, had an awesome time. We bought the day package and our guide Saul was AWESOME! We wanted him to show us around all of Playa he was that good. Food great, cenotes amazing, will defiantly be back.

We enjoyed the swim in two of the cenotes, # 3 and #4, with #4 being our favourite because of the fact that it was more or less enclosed. You have kayaks available for #3 but you really don't have much area to cover so just jump in and enjoy a swim. It is a little pricey for the cenotes... More
