Zip line was a blast. 10 lines took about 1.2 hours. Guides are fun and engaging. Saw some deer and possums. Road in is well marked and easy. Seemed very safe and well run. Wish we had more time to see cenotes, but we arrived late in the day.

Wonderful adventure! We did a full day excursion, Tulum in the morning, and then our tour bus took us here. The jungle road is long, very narrow, never thought our large tour bus could make it, but it did. Lunch was included, pretty ordinary. Quite a bit of walking to get to the lockers/changing area. First we toured a cave,... More

We saw many fish a few turtles & a stingray. We got back into the van & headed to the jungle . The road there was long and... More

We stayed near this beach, where people come from many miles to enjoy the snorkeling. I would have been very disappointed if I had paid a lot of money to visit this beach with a tour. We brought our own snorkeling gear and snorkeled for free. We did see some fish, coral, a couple turtles, and stingrays, however, we saw... More

Took our gringo twenty something kids there on a cloudy day. Started with the cave hike. Really beautiful and well presented caves. Refreshed with a relaxing/chilly snorkel in a beautiful cave. The animals were a big hit, especially the monkeys.

We arrived at 9.00am and were personally looked after from the time we arrived until we left. The personal experience was fantastic and we did everything from zip-lining, walking in the underground caves and swimming in the cenotes. This park really is worth a visit as it really does provide that personal experience compared to the bigger more commercial parks.

Unbelievable adventure from our honeymoon. We really enjoyed snorkeling in the cenotes and seeing life below the surface. It was surprisingly beautiful and so worth it! Highly recommend!

We found the park on Google maps and decided to visit, our wifi wasn't working very well, so I thought it was a national park. It isn't. There is a sign on the side of the road to get to the park. Then there is a gate near the road where you enter and you have to drive for about... More

Awesome hidden gem. Steps a little difficult (not recommended for small children, disabled, elderly). Fresh coconut water.

My family and I did all the Aktun Chen activities, including the zipline, cave tour, and cenote snorkelling. All the activities were thrilling and well worth the long drive into the park. Give yourself at least 4 hours to spend in the park, you could spend all day swimming in the cenote if you pleased. The guides were great, the... More
