This cave has the best unbroken stalagtites of any we have visited. Outstanding place and outstanding cenote. I like that everything is included. You don't have to pay "extra" for lockers or life jackets.

Into the wild, that is what this trip was. We visited Aktun Chen and it was a great experience. My family loved it. The workers were friendly and our guide was helpful. The place is beautiful and the Cenote was amazing.
