  • 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.
  • Awesome Cenotes. Nice temperature water and beautiful surroundings. Be sure to rub some sand on your skin. You'll come out feeling like you have been to a spa. Short excursion as well so plan for the morning time so you can do more in the afternoon if you prefer
  • This tour was the best tour we took on our recent cruise with Royal Caribbean, Rrrrrberto was awesome, the caves were spectacular and the food was great, This was a tour we will definitely go on again. We recommend it highly. Great value. Small groups and plenty of time,
  • Best Cenote I've ever been. The personnel is very pro and attentive. The caves are staggering, long trails with head torches. Don't miss it. =@)
  • Snorkel past stalactites in a cave! Mario was a great guide. This place is the coolest cenote/underground cave I've ever seen. They take you on a guided tour through 3 beautiful caves full of stalactites and even a few mayan artifacts. We get to swim through the caves! Past bats and insanely cool rock formations. It's dark and mysterious, they give you a water proof flashlight and there are few light sources installed as well. No one seems to know about this place because it's about 20 minutes inland and the tour buses don't go there. It is WAY cooler than the pictures make it look.

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.
