Riviera Maya, Mexico | Attractions | Aktun Chen
Aktun Chen is an ecological park located just 25 minutes away from Playa del Carmen. Aktun Chen is actually from the Mayan language, which is translated to “natural pool inside a cavern.” The park spreads over 180 hectares and offers many natural attractions to explore such as tropical forests and underground caverns and cenotes.
Indiana Joe’s provides a number of memorable tours through Aktun Chen including zip lining, snorkeling and cave exploring. Each tour can be picked out separately or you can choose the full tour which includes all these activities.
Aktun Chen’s caves have been named as one of the top 10-cave tunnel walks in the world. Walk by subterranean rivers and peer through deep crystal-clear wells. You will have the chance to explore the caves by foot or scuba diving and discover many different rock formations, stalactites, stalagmites, fossils and even fruit bats.
A cenote is a natural underground reservoir of water. Similarly to the cave tour you will be able to dive into the crystal clear water and make your way round various columns, stalagmites and stalactites.
Furthermore, if you decide to take the zip lining tour make sure you don’t have a fear of heights, as you will glide for over half a mile over Aktun Chen’s treetops. The platforms and zip lines are designed so that anyone, regardless of experience can participate. All the equipment is safe and regularly checked and professional guides will be there to give you a helping hand.
