  • Amazing experience for my whole family. From my 3 year old son to my 70 year old father, everyone had a blast. The staff was incredibly friendly, patient and kind. You won't see billboards and flyers ...  read more »
  • For some reason this Cenote doesn't seem to get all the hype you find in some adventure parks or other main tour path like on the way to Chichen Itza. We felt very safe at this facility and the staff ...  read more »

  • This was a beautiful mini-trip I made with four female friends. It was AWESOME. We paid a little over 100 dollars to participate in this tour, and it was one of the best investments I ever made. The cave is BEAUTIFUL. There was a lot of rich history and knowledge given to us through our tour guide, and the water is cool, refreshing, and good for the skin. Not only can you walk through the cave, you are also given a life jacket and flashlight to swim through the fresh water river that runs through the cavern. The flashlight is necessary because the cave is rather dark, and you are provided snorkel equipment to view the fish and stalagmites under the water. It looked like something out of a scary movie! We ended up with beautiful underwater pictures, amazing pictures of the cave itself, and memories that I will cherish forever. This is a must-do if you're ever in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico!
  • Beautiful cave tour with a refreshing cold water swim. I would recommend checking this place out if you get the chance.
  • Had a great experience. The price included a wetsuit, flashlight, a life jacket, and snorkeling equipment that is much needed! Would go again. Felipe was our tour guide.
  • Very good experience, 30$ per person with all the necessary gear (not including tips). But totally worth it. Recommand it!
  • 450 pesos (less than 30 USD) for a two-hour cave tour includes wet suit, flashlight. A 100 to 200 peso tip is nice for your guide. Cruise ship tourists go in the morning, so during the afternoons you can practically have the whole place to yourself. Closes about 4:30 pm. Good for either a rainy day, or hot sunny day activity, because you'll be underground most of the time and there is shelter from the rain above ground if needed while waiting a few minutes for your tour to begin. The road (Avenida Benito Juarez) is now paved all the way out there. You will see some rocks on the ground with 1-foot high letters painted on them that say Chaak Tun. Slow way down, because immediately after these rocks is a blind curve where you will be turning right into the Chaak Tun parking lot.
