First of all, I never read in any other review a warning about wearing your favorite clothes on the zip line. Don't wear them. We were misted with oil from the lines on our clothes and face. It's great, part of the fun, it comes off the face easy enough but it took some soaking to save my dress. The... More

We decided on the Combo--zip lining, dry cave tour, and underground river. By booking via internet we received a percentage off the combo price and a free lunch at their clean and spacious restaurant. The food was delicious by the way! There are 10 fun zip lines and a couple of swaying bridges to cross. The guides were very mindful... More

There are so many activities in the Riviera Maya region that it was a little overwhelming when we were choosing what to do on our trip, but I'm glad we picked this place. Here's how it worked for us: On their web site they offer a few different tours and we chose the "cenote adventure tour" which involves ziplining in... More

We spent a day at Aktun Chen doing all three of their activities - zip lining, cave tour, and cenote snorkeling. You can buy tickets online, and the rate quoted on their website was substantially lower than the rate quoted to us when we arrived. We requested the online rate and were given it with no questions, but we had... More

We were the first to arrive on a weekday in December, so we had a private tour with the place pretty much to ourselves. It's a fairly long ride deep into the jungle before you park, then you take a van even deeper into the jungle. The guides were very friendly and helpful, and catered to our needs. We did... More

The kids loved snorkeling for sea turtles. Super cheap and the tour guide was awesome. A must do. Go to the restaurant that is a short walk down the Main Street afterwards.

My friend and I stumbled upon this cenote by accident, basically we picked it just browsing through Google Maps and deciding it was closest to our destination that day. A little backstory: cenotes are basically the reason we came to Riviera Maya, but after watching several videos we slowly started to realize many were not the pristine and tranquil glowing... More

The cenote was nice, but very small. Way over priced for what was there. Would not return. Others in area much cheaper and better.

We visited here via a trip from our hotel akumal bay. We don't really like to do the tourist day trips as a family with a 6 year old but this was only 15 min transfer time so gave it a go. How glad we are that we did. Everything was outstanding. Greeted on arrival, a tour of 6 went... More
