4.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web
Its name meaning "White Caves" in the Yucatec Maya language, Sac Actun represents an underwater cavern system near Yucatan’s Caribbean coast. Explore a part of the massive 230 km (143 mile) cave system, and visit the Sac Actun cenote. Swim in the underground freshwater basins and streams, dive in the interconnected cenotes, or snorkel to see small fish swim along the roots and vines. Admire the vast caverns, adorned with stalactites and stalagmites, or try to spot the sea turtles that can be found near the opening of the cenote. See Sac Actun and all Tulum has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tulum tourist route planner.
