Somebody stole from us 600 USD
Feb 2019 • Couples
Everybody were very kind, but they forgot to tell that we have to let our things outside in the forest, while we are under in these cenotes and caves.

In my backpack were 600 USD and 30 EURO and a smaller amount of pesos, I mentioned for our guide Enrique (how was very kind) that there is money in my backpack and I am not happy that we have to let it behind. He answered that nobady will come this way (perhaps a few minutes earlier an old man was walking there, and spoke with him), and we visited the second and third caves. After the program we vent home (Xcacel dreams) and there recognized that our money is not in the backpack, only the 30 euros and the pesos. That is terrible because it would be the prize of our accomodation in Xcaret Dreams, so we are terrible sad now.

And it is our honeymoon... :(

Stunning, fantastic tour!
May 2015 • Family
We liked it even better than Dos Ojos cenote. It was 45 min claustrophobic snorkeling tour in a chilly water through the maze of passages between stalactites and stalagmites. According to Alex, there are 24 caves connected with each other, but only one is allowed for snorkeling, others -for diving. One passage was so narrow that you can only squeeze through it vertically sidewise, and life jacket makes it difficult. We are all fit but my first thought was we'll never make it. Alex was very helpful, explained how to move and what to do to pass through the slots. It was excitingly scary, captivating, I-envy-divers beautiful tour. Do wear wet suites, as you'll move slowly and will be freezing in 10 minutes.

Great guide

Noe was a great guide. Feels authentic, and a great snorkeling trip through an underground stream cave-system.

We loved our cenote tour!
Oct 2014 • Couples
Yesterday we went to this cenote and had an amazing time. Noe was a very good guide, he took great care to make sure that we had a wonderful and safe experience. I am so glad we came here instead of one of the commercial sties like Xel-Ha. I walked away feeling that I had a real adventure and will never forget it.

Once in a lifetime snorkeling experience
Jul 2014 • Family
The moment you land in Cancun you are marketed to visit Xcaret, Xplore, Xel-Ha, the rather commercial and partially completely artificial "nature parks". Don't get me wrong... Some are nicely done and are worth a visit, but you can't help but feel you're in an Epcot Center-like experience which has little to do with the real Mexico. And some of the "enchanted rivers" are 100% man-made. Hilario's we'll in Hidden Worlds is 100% natural and magical. It's difficult to find, and has a narrow entrance. Once inside you snorkel through an impossibly complex labyrinth of underwater rivers and tunnels. If it wasn't for the guide, you could lose yourself in that labyrinth forever. Instead, you'll see magical rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites, and the odd bat or two. It is truly magical. You don't actually even need to snorkel. You can perfectly well keep your head above water at all times. It's 25 degree Celsius sweet water, and very pleasant to swim in. I recommend it highly.

Awesome authentic experience!
Jul 2014 • Family
If you love an adventure, and love real life experiences, this is the cenote' for you! First, you ride an old truck to the cenote'. You climb down a ladder, put on your mask, don your snorkel, and go. It is phenomenol! You see caverns, stalagmites and formations. You literally squeeze through and under stalactites. It is unbelievable! This is not for anyone who is claustrophobic or anxiety ridden. Being familiar with snorkeling would help, too. This is cave snorkeling, and you can tell the difference in air pressure. We visited ATM cave in Belize a couple of years ago, and figured that would be our only super unique, uncommercialized cave we did in our lifetime. We were wrong! I definitely want to come back and do this again, and would recommend it to anyone who is up to it! It is so worth the $35 US we paid!
