Go into the jungle and discover the treasures that the so-called “lung of the Earth” on the Riviera Maya holds inside it. In Aktun-Chen, we have an ecosystem where flora, fauna and its visitors coexist harmoniously. By exploring each of the offered activities whether it be zip lining or excursions, you will enjoy a new experience of getting close to nature and contributing to habitat preservation. It is vital for us that you have fun, learn and become more aware of global problems that our planet faces.
The word Aktun-Chen comes from the language of Maya. "Aktun" means "cave" and "Chen" - "well" or "cenote". We are a Mexican company founded in 1997 with the idea of showing the beauty of the Mayan jungle from inside, as well as the underground rivers of Yucatan. Our location is very fortunate as we are located in the heart of the Riviera Maya just 20 km north from Tulum. Our 400 acres of forest preserve an intact ecosystem. We employ less than 10% of the total land area in our mission to protect endangered flora and fauna.
