Aktun Chen, Akumal

4.5
Visit the ecologically minded Aktun Chen, a 161 ha (400 ac) rainforest preserve, where wild spider monkeys and whitetail deer roam free. Venture into a 5-million-year-old limestone cave, and wander though caverns filled with bizarre formations, finally reaching a pool at the caverns' mouth for a cooling swim. If you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie, then try the network of ziplines, and soar through the trees observing a bird's-eye view of the jungle. With our international travel planner, Akumal attractions like Aktun Chen can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Good Morning, we had a great family and I, the guide Alfredo Excellent, Javier and Josue in the zip lines very funny, the waiter of the restaurant, I do not remember well his name, I think that Jaime also very friendly and attentive. I congratulate you for taking care of this beautiful natural space, where you feel the real coexistence with nature. Seeing The animals in freedom is wonderful, with so much space and well fed. Everyone in general sees themselves doing their job with love. Thank You for this wonderful day!!! Success!!
