If you consider yourself an adventurous traveler then you've got to check out Cenote Chaak Tun. (If you failed geography in grade school, a cenote is a natural limestone pit that reveals groundwater trapped below, leading to a system of underground caves, which were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings) Chaak Tun is relatively unknown, a hidden gem less than twenty minutes from our Playa del Carmen hotel. It contains two huge caves with massive gorgeous stalactites, one of which is partially submerged in cool, clear water, which you're free to explore to your heart's content. Chaak Tun provides an adventure you're unlikely to find anywhere else, and a sight you won't soon forget.
