Cenote Chaak Tun Tours

11 Reviews
At Cenote Chaak Tun, outside Playa del Carmen, venture inside hidden subterranean caves that the ancient Maya believed were sacred portals to the underworld. Follow the beam of your headlamp into an enormous cenote, where centuries-old stalactites drip from above, and swim and snorkel in its fresh water rivers and pools.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Visit Cenote Chaak Tun on a small-group tour with hotel pickup and drop-off.
  • Admission to the cenote includes a headlamp, helmet, and snorkeling gear.
  • The cenote is open daily and offers restrooms and lockers.
 
How to Get There
Cenote Chaak Tun sits at the end of Avenida Juarez, just several minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen. It’s accessible either by private tour or arranging your own transportation.

When to Get There
Cenote Chaak Tun can be visited year-round. It receives about half the visitors of some of the larger cenotes in Riviera Maya, so you can visit just about any time without having to worry about crowds. Tours of the cenote operate in all weather conditions.

Other Attractions in Playa del Carmen
While in Playa del Carmen, take a stroll along Fifth Avenue, a bustling pedestrian street lined with shops and restaurants, and visit Fundadores Park, the city’s main square or zocalo. The 52-foot (16-meter) beachside Portal Maya sculpture and Our Lady of Carmen church are also must-see attractions. And, of course, set aside some time to visit the beaches.
