very good visit to the caves - could do with a bit more information about them though. Wasn't very organised at the start - this could be to do with how busy it was the day we went though

Great experience of nature. My two kids (7,9) had a great time. They provide swim suits (diving suit?) and helmet with lights. It's better to wear water shoes because you're going to be in the water. It was a bit cold when we were swimming...More

Definitely not the cheapest thing to do in the Yucatan area (approximately 60 USD per person), but worth the money! We had a good English speaking guide who had a lot of relevant knowledge. Great adventurous activity in caves with stalagmites, stalactites, darkness and water....More
