I agree, about 20 minutes with the information given by the tour guide. After the tour we spent another 15 minutes on our own and saw everything 3 more times and were done.
Hello HarryCO2015. What cenotes in the area would you recommend, as you stated there are several that are better value than Aktun Chen.
