  • The caves or grottos are very nice, are still austere and that makes having a great charm. Parents has some parts very, has a cenote in, they are well-lit, they have audio where you tell the story. Tours are every hour and are in Spanish, English and French; do not make them with a guide is an audio only. Unfortunately the person the entry is little friendly and told us that it was super heavy get that one could feel super bad and that it was not advisable for elderly with respiratory problems or that they suffered from claustrophobia. But the reality is another, provided you like the adventures and is not the first time making these activities. The person who accompanied us explained absolutely nothing. Just would like seeing. If it becomes a little bit tired in two parts by the steps, but they are not the death. With patience and a good step can be downloaded without problem. It has a cost of $90, there is almost no signage so when going to Chichen should pay attention, are just as 6 min of distance
