Underwater Adventure

You’re feeling brave and up for an adventure, then you've got to check out Cenote Chaak Tun. (Geography refresher: 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 ten 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 is a sight you won't soon forget and excitement you won’t find anywhere else.

Address: Av. Juarez North, Playa del Carmen
