Full description

Discover the mystic Mayan underworld. Visit one of the best-preserved cenotes in all of the Riviera Maya. Meet in the Centro district of Cozumel. Take a short ferry ride from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen, where you’ll drive to the cavern. Along the way, your guide will explain the history of the cavern in order to enrich your experience. Once you’ve reached the heart of the jungle, get suited up for your adventure. Choose to either climb down the ladder or splash straight into the cenote within the cavern. Swim across the cenote and through the dark tunnels which connect the subterranean waters.

As you delve deep into this underground world, your guide will point out the cavern’s many fascinating features. Explore the unbelievable cavern and admire the stalagmites and stalactites which took more than 65 million years to form.

We loved this tour! We felt well taken care of! They fed us an amazing meal after the caving experience and gave us free water along the way as it was a hot day. The underground caving was such a neat experience I would definitely do it again. The only thing to remember is the actual excursion takes about two hours and the rest is travel time. Which is a bit of a bummer but well worth it. Our guide was fun, kind, knowledgeable, and fair. There was a slight communication error in that we thought we would see a cenote at the end of the caving tour and we did not. So definitely ask about that before you go.

This tour was INCREDIBLE! It is one of the coolest experiences I have ever had while traveling. Absolutely beautiful cavern system with plenty of time to jump in and swim. Our tour guide was extremely nice and informative. Do keep in mind you cannot bring your phone on the tour unless it’s fully water proofed as you have to swim to get through the cavern. 100% would book again. (And the meal after was amazing!!)

The underground river was really cool. The only reason I knocked off a star was because a lot of the time you stand around waiting for the other guests to finish their activity and we had a lot of kids in our group so we had to wait longer because they got scared. All in all it was a fun activity
