Aktun Chen, Akumal

4.5
#3 of 9 in Parks in Akumal
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.

  • We got there by mistake, looking for another cenote... already we were there. They charged us a fortune by going only to the cenote, but worth it.

  • The place is spectacular the truth have well-kept caves are amazing, the only comment that could make them is about its small Zoo though it is interesting gave me very sad show that they have a margay in a cage of 2 × 4 and costs are high
