  • Cenote Chaka Tun is of the beaten tourist trail. That said, some of the cruise lines do send groups here. So it is best to get there at opening time. The guided tour is mandatory and they limit the nu...  more »

  • 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 for this place which means they don't have to charge you $150 per person like some of the other places. Way better than only other place we have been. I highly recommend you take taxi and see one of the coolest natural attractions in the area.
  • Top spot of my trip to Playa del Carmen! The Cenote is awesome but even better are the guides and all the information they provide us! We learned so much visiting this place! I definitely recommend this place to everyone visiting Riviera Maya!
  • 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.
