We chose Aktun Chen because it seemed less Disney-fied than Xplor, Selvatica and others... And I so glad we chose right! From the gentle ride, 10 minutes info the Jungle on a well-compacted dirt road, that has plenty of signage along the way to keep you going the right way...to the reception area that is low-key but air conditioned, staffed...

We arrived knowing they take credit cards, except when their connection is down. Not their fault but we barely had enough pesos. We picked the dry cave tour. Note: there is no swimming with this tour. We were told the next tour was in 20 min. No it was right away! In fact they didn't even wait for us to... More

We came here because our 10 year-old wanted to do ziplining and I wanted to swim in a cenote. We don't care for a big theme-park kind of place, so we picked Aktun-chen. The entrance to the long unpaved road was easy to spot with the sign on the highway. It's between Akumal and Xel-Ha. You will drive good 15... More

In the middle of the jungle in a beautiful setting. Have 3 options for tours. We chose the Caverns and it was INCREDIBLE. Beautiful and awesome experience.

This is a beautiful cenote with lots of stalactites. The facility is well maintained. Our guide was nice and needed for first time visitors. We were not hurried out at the end of the tour and could linger and enjoy the cenote on our own.

We (grandparents and 9 year old grandson) were recently staying in Puerto Aventuras and unsure what to do, beyond snorkeling, given the heat, humidity, and unfortunate bloom of sea weed along the coast. Spending our last afternoon at the caves at Aktun chen, getting an informative tour from Roderigo, learning a lot, and enjoying the brief drive through the jungle... More

Our group consisted of 4 adults (1 who had previously zip-lined) and 3 children of which none had ever zip-lined. The tour guides were phenomenal! Our safety was their number one priority and it showed! The equipment was in tip-top condition. When we landed on the landing, before allowing us to move up the stairs, they always made sure we...

The tour person at our hotel called for us to reserve a time for our tour. We only did the dry cave tour. It included a tour of the cave and also a little zoo. The cave was amazing. The tour guide did a very good job. We saw some bats as well. When the tour ended we could have... More

I bought this cenote entry in conjunction with tulum. We had a guided tour through the cenote and after that we were able to swim on our own. It was the most beautiful and breath taking experiene. Go early morning to avoid the crowds.
