Private Pet Cemetery Cenote Tour

Join us on the Private Pet cemetery Cenote Tour! This Cenote is one of the best cenotes in the area of Tulum. It is part of the Sac Actun (White Cave in mayan language) underground river, the biggest cave system of 215 miles. It is located far away  in the jungle, almost 4 miles from the highway.

Why is the cenote called Pet Cemetery?

Sac Actun – Pet Cemetery cenote witnessed the evolution of the Yucatan for centuries. Today, there are still evidences of extinct animals in the cave. The cenote is opened for swimmers and snorkelers, but only scuba divers can see the bones of prehistoric animals located in this cave! Now you understand where its name comes from!

Sac Actun Pet Cemetery Cenote Tour with Private Guide

Pet cemetery cenote is a must go for snorkelers. The cenote is so amazing, it is one of the most decorated cenote with many stalactites, stalagmites.  To visit the Pet Cemetery, it is mandatory to go with a guide. The cave is so big and gets very dark that you could get lost if you would go on your own.

    The Most Incredible Day! Do not Hesitate to book with Absolute Adventure Mexico.

  2. Victoria

    Amazing day with Juan to Pet cemetery today. It was just amazing. highly recommend.

  3. Bill

    Hector, our guide, and Willie, our driver were so kind to us. And Hector was a fountain of knowledge, not just about cenotes, but also about Mayan/Mexican history and a bunch of other random things we had questions about.
    We chose Sac Actun (Pet Cemetery) cenote. Sac Actun was breathtaking (the pictures online don’t even do it justice), and the cave system was big enough that any other visitors were barely noticeable. Lots of bats among the stalactites, and crystal clear blue water.

    Wonderful experience! Chris was an excellent guide. Would recommend this tour. Went to Pet Cemetery senote, which was breath taking. We stopped and ate at a small restaurant. The food was fantastic. Thank you Chris!

  5. Nadine

    Marcel was a fantastic guide and provided an immense amount of information during our tour. He is very passionate about the history, culture and beauty of the area. Our entire family (including our children) enjoyed our conversations with Marcel. It was the first snorkeling experience for my children and Marcel easily calmed any fears of snorkeling at the “Pet Cemetery” cenote. In fact, it was the favorite part of the entire trip for my youngest (who was also the most apprehensive). It was an awesome day for all of us.

  6. Maria

    Wonderful tour. I would highly recommend Absolute adventure they were professional, friendly, informative and went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Snorkeling at Pet Cemetery (cenote) was amazing, the water was so clear. They even provided wet suits since the water is a bit chilly for these Floridians. We had lunch near the cenote and it was delicious. Thank you Claire and Juanjo for a wonderful tour !

  7. Jennifer

    I cannot tell you how thrilled we were with our excursion through this company. We chose to snorkel in a Cenote named Pet Cemetary, and eat at a Mayan restaurant in the jungle. We went as a small group of four (my boyfriend, his son, his son’s friend, and myself).

    From the get-go, Claire was exceptionally responsive via email. We exchanged several emails, and she answered all of my questions patiently and quickly, which is no small feat. When I was comfortable and had all of my information, I booked the excursion. The instructions were clear and I felt very confident that the excursion would be awesome.
    Marcel was our guide on the trip and Ervine was our driver. Both were incredible respectful, professional, accommodating, and truly wonderful.
    The cenote was stunning! It was other-worldly! Even with a true beginner at snorkeling in our group, we had a lot of fun. They provided wet suits, which was nice as the water, while warm, gets a little chilly after a while. This is truly a must regarding their excursion options. This was likely the highlight of our trip.
    The Mayan restaurant we ended with after the Cenote was nearby and the food was amazing! Marcel ate with us. He was knowledgeable regarding the menu, which was helpful as we had a few questions.
    I truly cannot express how amazing this excursion was. Clear communication from beginning to end. Absolute Adventure Mexico deserves to be a highly sought-after company as they truly have put a lot of time and energy into making their excursions second to none!

    Great cenote tour!
    Our guide Marcel took us to Pet Cemetery. Pet Cemetery was an underground cave that we could swim through, with interesting formations, both overhead and underwater. The water was a little chilly but the guide provided wetsuits and snorkel gear. He led us through the cave and pointed out interesting items. Then we had lunch at an authentic Mayan restaurant and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this

  9. Holly

    Awesome adventure with Absolute Adventure
    We booked “pet cemetery” cenote adventure. We were two families, a party of 10, staying at two different hotels in Cancun. Marcelo was our guide, and took amazing care of us. They picked us both up in a timely manner. It was WONDERFUL to be on a PRIVATE tour by ourselves! We loved swimming in the pet cemetery cenote was spectacular! To finish off the great day, they took us to a typical Mayan restaurant for lunch. All included. I’d highly recommend it to all!! Don’t forget an underwater camera or underwater cover. You will want to take pictures!!

    Private tour is the only way to go!
    I always prefer a private tour when possible… for the very reasons I enjoyed our day so much. As Marcel said at the beginning – it’s your day, we do what you want to do at your pace. They picked us up promptly at our hotel and we headed out. I asked to stop at an ATM since the ATM at our hotel charges exorbitant fees to use and he said – no problem. We snorkeled in the Pet Cemetery cenote. I hadn’t really researched cenotes prior to our trip so I had no idea how cool this was. We were so happy we picked this tour. We took our time, had our guide all to ourselves instead of competing with others to ask questions or take pictures. We never felt rushed, he took care of all transactions with admission fees, lunch bill, etc. It was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend doing a private tour whatever excursion you choose and don’t hesitate to contact this company!!

    We had a great time even with the rain! Really enjoyed the pet cemetery cenote. Marcel was a great guide . Thank you absolute adventure! If I am ever in Playa again I will definitely tour with them again.

  12. Lindsay

    It was the highlight of my trip- swimming in the Pet Cemetery Cenote. For most of the time, we were the only people there, and I can say that this was a very special privilege, to appreciate the tranquility and beauty of this place which is sacred to the Mayans. It was something we would never have experienced otherwise and Claire was experienced in leading us through the silent, clear water in a way which allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the place while respecting its fragility and without worrying about getting lost! In fact you cannot visit this Cenote without a guide.
    As other reviewers have said, the meal in the jungle was also great. I enjoyed learning a bit about Mexico and the history of the Mayans over lunch from Claire, who is a great source of knowedge and takes her tour guiding very seriously.
    All in all, highly recommended to anyone who appreciates something special and thanks to Claire for making it a memorable day for myself and two grown up children.
