Cenote Santa Cruz, Akumal

4.5
#4 of 9 in Parks in Akumal
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.

  • Amazing this place was amazing and would highly recommend it to anyone!!! I couldn't believe how great the staff was and the price was very reasonable! Also this was our first trip in Mexico and this was an awesome spot to visit!
  • We went on a tour with Victor. This cave is beautiful. We were five adults and a 3.5 year old and Victor took great care of us. We highly recommend this cenote!
  • We went to one of the three cenotes and swam there and we also visited Mayan Village and got some of their culture and food it was very good
  • Our driver and JP picked us up directly from our beach house in Akumal and drove us about 15 minutes into the jungle on a very bumpy ride to the Cenote. JP was very knowledgeable and kept the tour through the Cenote moving at a perfect pace. We would stop on occasion to look around and swim. All in all, we spent almost 2 hours in the cave. It was beautiful and a lot of fun. Definitely would recommend.
  • Super cool the nicer part the tours are privates
