Decided to try this out. The walk through the under ground cave was the best. The Zip-line was not that high and ran over some garbage, the only animals out were the deer. The cenote was approx. 10 minutes long. Not worth the money. Also...More

We had great guides and did 10 zip lines. It was my first time and I liked it. Too many people in the group though. The cenote was small and not worth the $33. I heard that there are much better ones around the area...More

I have done cenotes before but they are all so different! This had so many stalactites & stalagmites. It was also well lit inside which was nice, and the water crystal clear. We went here with a tour and swam around the whole cave. We...More

We chartered a taxi from our resort in Cancun. It was an hour and a half drive. Once you pay at the reception area, a bus will take you to the area where the caves are and a tour guide will greet you.
