Amazing cenate and private experience

This was an amazing experience!
We booked an evening tour at 7 and came a bit late, because it was hard to find. If you don’t have a car you should deff book it through the company directly. It is 500 pesos for both ways.
Besides it is cheaper. We didn’t know.. If you take a taxi it is about 400-500 pesos for one way. (From Valladolid)
Anyway this was a really nice experience. Our guide was the daughter of the owner and she was very nice and spoke great English.
We were alone on the trip, which was amazing because many of the other Cenotes are full of other tourists, which kind of ruins some of the experience. So this was perfect. We could swim around and after we got some food. Pollo, beans and rice and some chips and guacamole, delicious food and a really sweet waiter.
Our guide told us that you can actually sleep at their place. Couldn’t really see it because it was dark at the night, but the atmosfere seamed amazing!
Go for it!
Wow-Another World!

Wow! This was just unreal. The cenote was magical and our guide, Manuel enthusiastically explained Mayan history and religious custom to us, and the history of the cenote. The dinner was delicious and we were welcomed by yet another very kind staff member. We also learned about Mayan chocolate and ceremonial drinks. This place is beautiful and you can stay in a cabin there and listen to the sounds of the forest. Highly recommend.
Una experiencia inolvidable

This was such an amazing experience. I booked this tour for just myself and I did not expect to be the only one. I had the entire cenote to myself. Manuel, my guide, was super knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I will not forget this tour anytime soon. I booked this tour because it was cheaper but I would recommend booking the tour that includes transportation (which you can also find on Viator), you get a better deal. I didn’t realize how far the cenote was and required transportation anyways.
Experiencia inmersiva con la naturaleza.

Fue una gran experiencia, con momentos muy emotivos por un ambiente de gran vinculación con la naturaleza, tanto de la caverna, del cenote y del exterior, hasta grandes sapos logramos ver!!; toda la ambientación para disfrutar esta experiencia fue increíble, en verdad Yam hecho un gran trabajo para crear una consciencia y conservar estos lugares tan hermosos.
Most wonderful experience that we ever had!

Deze tour was zo bijzonder! Je gaat 9 levels af en bij elk level vertellen ze wat over de geschiedenis van de Maya en de cenote. Ook krijg je een ceremonie, en mag je nog in de cenote “zwemmen”. En daarna krijg je nog heerlijk wat te eten. Het was voor ons een nog bijzondere tour omdat we een half uur te laat waren omdat we het niet gevonden kregen, hadden we een privé tour en de cenote ook voor onszelf! Dank daardoor, het was geweldig!
