My family (husband and two kids under 13) visited Sac Actun on our recent vacation. We took a taxi to the site, then paid for a tour and for the use of flotation vests and snorkeling equipment. Upon plunging into the crystal clear, chilly waters, we began the guided swimming tour of the underground cave system. Over the course of... More

This was my second visit to a Mexican Cenote, and sadly I cannot remember the name of the other one from ten years ago, but this one was better---truly fabulous. Not for those who are afraid of the dark or claustrophobic, but it was really fun. The guide was fabulous. Funny, entertaining, and informed. Scenery was really beautiful. About two... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th Anniversary in Tulum. This was our favorite activity! We read about it on trip advisor and decided to take a chance.Our beach day got interrupted by black skies and rain, so we decided to go check it out, thinking that maybe because it was underground the weather wouldn't matter that much. It is... More

This was the best thing we did in Mexico. The tour guide was awesome. This is a must do. Go early in the day. Get an waterproof camera.

We hired a taxi service to take us to Tulum, a cenote and Akumal. Sac Actum was the 2nd stop. We have been snorkeling at a cenote with a tour before. So we have a little experience for comparison. The cenote is located about 15 minutes off the highway. We brought our own snorkel gear but it did not effect... More

Beautiful Cenote. Imagine an underground cave tour but you're floating through instead of walking...amazing! Not that o crowded and felt like it was off the beaten path. It was lovely.

I have to be honest that even though this experience was very unique and impressive and adventurous and mysterious, and I treasure the experience for those reasons, it was far from romantic, and it was not my favorite cenote and by far not my favorite experience in Tulum. They give you snorkeling gear and a life jacket, and you see... More

Keep going down that dirt road, you'll get there, don't turn back! And don't pay at the front gate....The staff were highly fluent and very friendly. The water is cold, but the tour is really spectacular! Make sure to bring an underwater camera, though they have ones to rent if you buy a memory chip.

One of the more expensive cenotes but really nice as it is not crowded and fairly untouched from when it was discovered. The only thing that would have been nice is if they provided wet suits. It got pretty cold as the swimming tour takes about 45 mins-hr and there isn't any direct sunlight.

Very impressed with Sac Actun (white cave) Cenote. It's a couple miles down from Dos Ojos Cenote, but larger & less crowded. Water was refreshing & our guide was nice. We were in a group of 10 people & we saw so many beautiful stalactites. We rented the underwater camera for an additional $45, and they let you keep the... More
