The cenote is an experience because it involves gin clear water with stalactites overhead as one traverses through the water on a guided safe tour. It's kind of a weird feeling at first but seems natural as time progresses floating in the water. It's a natural wonder and the experience is not easily forgotten. The location is easy to get...

Staff and zip line quality were top notch . 10 segments Allow you to go upside down on a few and as a couple on one Physically have been on longer and steeper and higher so thrill factor may not be as high as other locations so that is only reason not 5

Family and I were heading for a day in Tulum and stopped by Aktun based off of signs on the highway. We were pleasingly surprised there was zero wait to time to do the zip lines. Staff was very experienced and safety was paramount. We zip-lined through the jungle for 45 minutes on numerous lines. What a great and unexpected... More

It costs 33 per person to visit just the cenote- 33 more if you visit the cave as well. So costs more than visiting EcoRancho Mayamar where you got a private tour and saw 4 caves/cenotes. Did not get to see the animals because they are near the cave not near the cenote. Take your stuff with you and use... More

I was amazed by this place! It so beautiful and definitely an incredible experience, we only went to the Cenote as we didn't have much time to go to the other areas, however the cenote was such a great experience, water is cold and the rock formations are just unbelievable, we were totally blown away by the beauty of this...

We have never been to one of the large adventure parks, but we have returned to Aktun Chen for second year in a row. It is much lower key without the large crowds, but with all the excitement. There are 10 zip lines in the circuit. Our guides were amazing and funny. Both years we had a private group for... More

I would recommend this for first time zipliners. Pros: Staff-was welcoming, helpful, not pushy Guides- Max and Delvario were absolutely amazing. They were fun, encouraging, and made you feel very comfortable (if you are a tad nervous like I was). Clean and organized- They took preventions to keep equipment clean from one user to the next. Price-fixing Decent we used... More
