Cenote Santa Cruz, Akumal

(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Head deep below the surface on a guided tour of Cenote Santa Cruz, a system of underground reservoirs in a limestone cave. Known as cenotes, the reservoirs of crystal clear water lie in underground limestone chambers, believed to be more than 50 million years old. Impressive rock formations and the clear, clean water create an otherworldly atmosphere as you explore the system. The tour will provide life jackets and waterproof flashlights, but make sure you bring comfortable clothing, shoes you don't mind getting wet, and your own snorkel. Plan your Cenote Santa Cruz visit and explore what else you can see and do in Akumal using our Akumal vacation trip planner.
