Cenote Chaak Tun

Av Benito Juárez LB, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

The Basics

Still relatively unknown to tourists, Cenote Chaak Tun is one of Playa del Carmen’s best-kept secrets. Here, you can learn about the formation and history of the caves, and hear stories and legends of the ancient Maya. Visit the cenote independently or as part of a guided tour that explores two underground rivers. Travelers who want to avoid the hassle of renting a car in Mexico can opt for a tour that includes transportation.

Pleasant and efficient tour to a few Quintana Roo highlights
We took this tour with Tomás, a wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. After a punctual hotel pickup and a ~2 hour drive from Cancún, we got to Tulúm and had about two hours at the ruins. The guided tour was optional and we were allowed to roam on our own if we preferred. After meeting back up at the bus, we drove another hour or so to the Cenote. This is actually more like a cavern. The guide led us through the natural cave system which is inhabited by bats, catfish and many other species. Flashlights and life vests were provided. A very interesting and unique experience, to say the least. Some logistical tips for future travellers: bring sunblock and bug repellent with you to Tulúm. There are restrooms available there, as well as several take out food options for a lunch back on the bus (Subway, for example). At the Cenote, there are also restrooms available as well as lockers and changing rooms, so you can change in and out of your swimsuit on-site. We were picked up in Cancún around 7:30 AM and returned back around 6PM.
