  • Amazing place with very attentive staff. A must do to experience the full beauty of underwater rivers and caves. We had Mario as a guide who did a wonderful job explaining the formations and history of the area. We had 3 in our group so had a nice private tour. Beat the crowds of other areas and yet see the same amazing formations. Highly recommend this place as a half day adventure.
  • The ancient Mayan site has well maintained paths leading down to the water. A few underwater lights provide just enough spooky atmosphere to make the experience memorable. The main entrance had gear and lockers at reasonable prices. The staff were friendly and spoke English. I would recommend this site due to its beauty and ease of access.
  • It's a small, less touristy option. They still do the photos and the tequila tasting to try to get you to buy, but overall, it's a laid back experience. The guide was nice, the lunch was good. No gift shop and not overcrowded... all positives!
  • We chose to visit this place as an excursion during our cruise. Our guides were very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. We found this to be a unique experience, unlike anything we would find at home. There were bathrooms and lockers to put your things in while you're in the caves. There is a fee for lockers. Everyone is required to wear a life jacket and those are provided free of charge.
  • Enjoyed my time here. They had a nice shady area for my wheelchair bound friend to wait for me. Clean bathrooms. Great guide made it interesting and informative.
