  • It's as good as the other reviews say. We had Emmanuel as our tour guide and he was great, very informative and funny. We went on Sunday morning which was perfect. Emmanuel said the weekends are slower than during the week when they have tours coming through. We only had 4 people in our group which was the perfect amount. You can play with VISA and MasterCard but they add a 5% surcharge which was nominal. We took a cab from Playa for 120 pesos.
  • Abel was our guide into the Cenote. He is very informative and friendly with me and my group. The Cenote was fun to explore, but be very aware of your surroundings. I recommend you visit this if you love adventure. $35 american dollars for the tour or $500 pesos. Afterwards, take shots of tequila by the bar in the vicinity. Good experience and would love to do it again.
  • If you like cave diving without the diving... Then this is the excursion for you. Snorkel in a dark cave, cold water, and bats... It was a blast. Plus, authentic tamales to munch on when your done. Book now, you will not regret.
  • Very cool place, I highly recommend. Beautiful scenery both inside the cenote and outside. Friendly staff too. This is a hidden gem not to be missed!
  • Fun, but make sure you don't get ANY water in your mouth. Boyfriend was sick for a week afterwards because of it.
