Aktun-Chen (Indiana Joes)

Aktun-Chen (Indiana Joes) Review

Aktun-Chen is Mayan for "the cave with cenotes inside," and these amazing underground caves, estimated to be about 5 million years old, are the area's largest. You walk through the underground passages, past stalactites and stalagmites, until you reach the cenote with its various shades of deep green. There's also a canopy tour and one cenote where you can swim. This is a top family attraction, and one that's not as crowded or touristy as Xplor, Xel-Há, or Xcaret.
