    This tour was great. Made in 15-06-2017 day with a group of friends. The place is huge with many places for diving. Get ready because the water is veeeeeery cold. I highly recommend the Guide Abel, who was very attentive and explained the history of the site. The ride has a time called "minute maia" which is a place where there's no light, only the lanterns, where the Guide asks you to turn it off the same and be quiet. Is sensational, because we can't see anything, even putting the hand in front of your face, you can't see your hand. There they offer the costumes and masks for the ride. I took my mask and snorkel, because I'm used to with my equipment. Super recommend. Is closer to playa del carmen and leaving playa, approximately 20 min, by car.

    We visited Chaaktun as part of a cruise excursion. I'm so very happy we selected this stop on our short trip because we were able to do and see so much with this selection. The caverns are beautiful--...  more »

    Beautiful caves caves with stalactites, stalagmites and columns. The visit is done on the water with mask and snorkel. A pure delight.

Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
