We booked this experience thru Royal Caribbean and could not be happier with our choice. We took the ferry from Cozumel (included in the excursion price) to Playa del Carmen where we met our awesome guides Pablo and Luigi. They divided our group of 30...More

Took a cab from our resort to the cenote. Easy to pay and sign in for a trip. The company provides gear (masks, boots, neoprene suits if needed, flash lights)— they had, but didn’t offer, snorkels, which I suggest you ask for explicitly. Mario, our...More

Great excursion from Royal Caribbean Cruise. Short distance from Playa del Carmen dock. Beautiful caverns with easy snorkeling in really cool caverns! Fantastic staff including "Luigi" who was very knowledgeable and friendly in his guiding. After snorkeling, enjoyed a delightful authentic Mexican lunch.

We got a taxi from PDC (about 15mins) to Chaak Tun. Yes, it does look like your going to the middle of nowhere. And make sure you arrange a return fare without taxi driver before you leave your starting point - I made the rookie...More

When I showed up I wasn’t sure I would be able to do the tour due to a sprained ankle. The guides and employees that work there were very accommodating and supplied a tensor bandage.

We went on our own by car. It’s not necessary to book in advance. You could also use a taxi, I think it’s not more than 150 to 200 Mx$.

IB Tucan to Cenotes (3 Replies)
I'll be at the IB Tucan in a few days (YIPPEE!). I wanted to swim in a cenote but don't want to go on an excusion and I won't have a car. Does anyone know if I can travel to these cenotes on my own and If so, how I can travel to them: • Cenote Azul • Cenote Chaak Tun • Cenote Jardin del Eden (Ponderosa) Also, will these places be warm enough to swim in, next week, without a wetsuit?

Cenote Chaak Tun and Other Activity Question (2 Replies)
Hi, Does anyone know if cenote chaak tun is open on Sundays? Also, thinking about taking ferry to cozymel on a Saturday. If we ferry over, how would you recommend seeing the island? We are interested in biking around if that is a good option. Also, would snorkel,however, we will be staying in playa maroma and might have the option there as well. Thanks

DIY Cenote Chaak Tun Tour (3 Replies)
Question #1 We are staying in Playa del Carmen and I noticed that all the excursions to Cenote Chaak tun have an additional travel fee of $15 per person. Can we take a taxi ourselves and still have a tour guide that we get on the spot or do we have to book a reservation with a tour group to have a guide? Also, I am somewhat claustrophobic, will this be a problem? Is there space above at all times?

From this review, it appears that you can cab it and still have a guide - https:/…CHECK_RATES_CONT You can look at the pictures and decide - yes there is space, but sometimes the space isn't that much, so it depends on your tolerances.
