My wife and my two daughters went there and loved it. Beautiful nature. My 10y old choose the Wet suit, the others not. I think both is ok. Guide was very friendly and helpful.

The cenotes itself was such an incredible treat, but JULIO from RESTAURANTE JUANITA that is about half way up the road to the cenotes gave us the most exceptional tour of it. He told us the history of the it, how they are created, and...More

The board outside welcomes you and tells you they've waited 15,000 years for your visit. With such marketing, I was already sold. Inside I met Mauricio and he was fantastic. He knows his stuff and he made me relax in this amazing cenote. I hate...More

Had the whole place to ourselves. Arrived 90 minutes before closing and everyone else had already left. Not one of the most visited cenotes in the first place so was very peaceful. Have to take a guide but the cenote is incredible to swim through....More

We were torn between Dos Ojos and Sac Actun. We're so glad we chose this place. The caves were incredible! I could only imagine what it'd be like to dive through there. I also recommend Casa Tortuga!

It is located at the end of an 8km dirty road but it is worth visiting it. You can leave your car close to the entrance, take the necessary equipment (I strongly recommend to rent a wet suit despite the water is not too cold)....More

Sac Actun is a beautiful place, much bigger than grand cenote. We loved the tour with the guide, who explained everything.

Sac Actun is a MUST SEE whilst in Tulum. It was the highlight of our week there. We visited with no expectations and loved it. Do it. (You can ignore the upselling... you won’t need a wetsuit, torch or camera pouch).

This place was beautiful! Make sure you bring a GoPro and maybe even a flashlight that works in the water. Some of the places are dark, but your guide has a flashlight. Beautiful, clear waters. Don't wear any big spray or sunblock as it will...More
