We went as part of a GoMexico tour, which was cheaper than what others were charged. As we arrived we were funneled through a building in which we started being eaten by mesquites immediately, in the building. Then we were asked what we would like to eat, lead outside where the confusion began. They did not tell us where to... More

Me and 5 friends went here on a whim and did the zip line and cenote tours! The former was exhilarating, the latter beautiful. It was a great way to spend the early afternoon, and we still had lots of sunlight time for beach and dinner after! Our zip line guides Ricardo, Josue, and Darvelio were enthusiastic and professional, and... More

The zip wires were brilliant with the 3 guides, (sorry cannot remember your names). Showing patience and attention to safety. I am 62yrs and really enjoyed it, although I did not try it upside down. The walk through the caves and the snorkelling in the cenote was also a first for me also not to be missed. Hint take insect... More

My aunts mom sister and i all wanted something adventurous to do while in akumal and we found the perfect place in Aktun Chen. Darvelio and Javier were our zip line guides and they couldn't have done a better job. The lines are exhilarating and those two made sure that we felt safe every step of the way. The combination...

I was impressed by the natural light that entered this cenote and the crystal clear water. Of all the cenotes I have visited, I spent the most time snorkeling and looking under the water in this cenote. Other cenotes don't have enough light for this. I wish the cenote was larger though because I was enjoying my time here and... More

Dad didn't go on the cave tour because of physical limitations, however the staff took him to the restaurant there to wait for us till we were finished. Louis, our guide was very informative and witty. He waited for us to take... More

My husband and I visited his cave as part of an excursion booked through our hotel. The water was a bit cooler than we expected, but we acclimated to the temperature very quickly. The cave has many large stalagmites and stalactites as well as small bats hanging from the ceiling. We weren't allowed to use flippers while snorkeling since the... More
