This is an amazing cave system well worth seeing. It contains evidence of humans going back more than 10,000 years to pre-Mayan civilizations. The caves are warm and fairly dry although they become more humid the further alone in the tour. Make sure you wear...More

This is an astetically beautiful and important archelopgical and geoloical site. However, the people that run this site appear to lack moral decency. We were rushed through the ticket gate and charged 500 pesos for 2 adults and 1 child. We later learned this should...More

While visiting Merida, we decided to take a trip down the Ruta Puuc and visit Uxmal and the Lol tun caves. Wow, we really were surprised at how truly amazing this place was. First, let me tell you that it is about an hour walking...More

Daughter (9) and I went on a weekday around 9. Guide is required and quoted us a price of 800 pesos, which was not cheap, but as we were the only English speakers there, was OK. If you're bothered by the last-minute requests -- just...More

This is a very special cave in the Puuc hills (the only hills of Yucatán), great to visit alongside the Uxmal ruins (and the rest of the ruins on the Puuc Route). It is a dry cave, not a cenote. It challenges our notion of...More

Very impressive caves. Easy walking but you do need decent walking shoes as it is quite slippery in parts. A guide is essential for both interest factor and safety. Like Uxmal it has two entry fees - one for federal government and the other for...More

My brother and I visited the Lol-tun Caves while on a trip to explore the Yucatan. The caves were spectacular - spacious and with an intriguing and ancient history. It was very nice to have the opportunity to explore them after learning of their history....More

The place is amazing and definitely worth visiting, however, the local guides will force you to take a guided tour without telling you the price in advance. Basically the local guides establish the guided tour price depending how many people join the group to ensure...More

The caves are very scenic and absolutely fascinating geologically and anthropologically. Walking in them feels like walking on the ocean floor a million years ago. The wall paintings from 4,000 years ago as well as Maya inscriptions from hundreds of years ago are fascinating. I...More

The cave was quite pretty and interesting in places but we felt very pressured by the mandatory guide about the "tip". Don't expect to pay him less if you have more people in your group so go early when it's less crowded. There is some...More
