Beautiful scenery and clean waters, fun for family or just flying solo. Try to get there early, so that you can enjoy serenity and prior to influx of other tourists.

We drove there ourselves last week from Tulum. It was around a 30 minute drive. There are no signs for Sac Actun so you want to Dos Ojos turn and then once there follow signs for Sac Actun. We paid in cash however I do... More
