Sac Actun was wonderful & best of all, very quiet. Pull into the Cenotes Dos Ojos entrance & let the attendant know you're heading to Sac Actun & they'll let you pass right through. Don't buy lifevests, snorkels or anything else they offer as it will all be provided for you once you get back to Sac Actun. After they... More

This is a private Cenote and is therefore an expensive tour but it was well worth it! Wetsuits and underwater cameras are available for rent. Our group was small and there was no rush as we explored the underground cenote.

We've been to a lot of cenotes but this one was by far the best. It's only been open to the public for seven years. Huge cenote absoutely beautiful. Lovely grounds and not overrun with tourists. Unlike many of the other cenotes, you are required to go with a guide. The cost was 450 pesos per person and absolutely worth... More

We visited this cenote this morning, so very cool. I was a little nervous about the darkness but our guide was amazing. Had a flashlight and we didn't miss a thing. Truly unground marvels, highly recommend

This is a once in a lifetime kind of experience. You literally swim through underground caves for 30-45 minutes! Your guide leads you and explains things along the way... with his flashlight since it's pitch black otherwise. It'll absolutely amazing!! TIPS: the water is very cold... I wore a thermal shirt and was VERY thankful I did. Bring a waterproof... More

We visited Sac Atun Cenote in December from Playa del Carmen. Fortunately we had a vehicle, as I imagine a taxi cab out past Tulum and down a 5 kilometre pothole track would be pricey. There are few facilities here and no lockers. The guide was helpful and informative. The Cenote was lovely, with stalactites and stalagmites galore. Some of... More

Sac Actun was recommended to us by locals who said it was the best place to see/experience the cenotes as caves and as part of a vast underground river. It's a guided snorkeling experience, not a free swim, and they put our group of four into a larger group totaling about 15. The guide was good, though, and the views... More

Not crowded and great guides. Luis was hilarious. So beautiful there. Was more of a drive but you feel like you have a private cenote.
