My husband and I decided to take an organized tour on a recent trip to Cancun. We always marvel when we hear all the tours people take on vacation as we have never really been interested in organized, scheduled events while on vacation. Well, we are certainly glad we decided to do this tour. We booked through Go Mexico on... More

I found Aktun Chen on Tripadvisor and despite some reviews saying that it is long way from the road, we decided to take Collectivo and walk the rest of the way. What surprise waited for us - they now provide transport from the road. We waited 15 minutes, but we were glad that we did as the journey seems much... More

We went to aktun chen for zip lining. Neither my husband or myself had ever tried it before and were nervous to do so. It was a blast though! The instructors eased my nerves and didn't pressure me. We weren't too high off the ground, which was good for our first time, but for people who have zip lined before... More

The guides were super cool and put us and our 10 year old at ease. Saw wild monkeys in tree tops, deer on jungle floor and crocs in the swamps.

My sister and were driving from Cancun to Tulum in a hire car. We drove through a tropical storm to arrive at the reception and the place was pretty quiet but the staff (surprisingly) said it was ok for us each to do a different activity. I wanted to do the Cenote swim and my sister the cave walk. It... More

We had an informative guide who switched between english and spanish with ease. The caves were interesting and the zoo afterwards was good too. We would definitely return.

4 adults and 3 children 5-8 had a fantastic time. We enjoyed all the activities and were particularly impressed with the safety measures on the zip line and oh what fun it was to go through 10 zips! And the leaders were extremely personable and fun. Guided tours were great so plan on 5-6 hours for everything Remember to bring... More

Visited as part of a VEA trips and tours experience, as somebody who is scared of heights I was a little apprehensive, but so glad I went! My fiancée and I had the best time, looked after by absolutely the best crazy staff you could imagine! Would recommend to all.

There was only one other couple at the park when we went. They were going to the cenote and we opted for the dry cave tour so we only saw them for a few minutes. There is a pet Spider Monkey that you can play with and pet while you wait for your tour to begin. Our guide for the... More

This is really a must. All natural attractions. This is the real thing. And the staff is incredibly nice. What an adventure, we really enjoyed the swimming in the cenote and the cavern hiking.
