“Fun with very professional service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

My family and I did the Xcanche tour with activities which were a bike ride through the forest, zip line across the beautiful cenote, rappel down to the cenote and swimming. There was also a Tarzan style rope to swing out over the cenote and jump in. It was a lot of fun and the staff are very professional and polite. The cost was 300 pesos/person and we spent about 2.5 hours there.

“Incredible!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Rappelling down into the cool, refreshing waters of the Cenote at Ek Balam was the experience of a life time. It was exciting, fun and worth the drive from Cancun. Visually stunning, and so private and honored, this site is not to be missed. The meal afterwards was delicious and the memories from this place with stay with us forever!!

Beautiful cenote that you may or may not have to work hard to get to. You can walk the 2km to the Cenote, or hire a bike and rider to take you there!
