  • He cenote of Aktun Chen is one of them more cute in Mexico, is very close to beach of the Carmen, you must take a truck from beach to get, this is located within a park that has several attractions. You must pay an entrance to enter to the cenote, you dan mask and vest to swim by all the cenote! Found me it amazing, spectacular colors!

  • Beautiful underground Cenote. Lighting makes it more mysterious and mystical. Pleasant pastime.
