First of all, as many have said, pretty difficult to find. It's actually like 1 mile southwest of Calcetok, and the you take a really rough (potholes) road to the cave system. If your on a rough road, your on right road. I would fully...More

I was hesitant about this attraction, given the reviews that said it was difficult to find and the guides don't speak English. While both are true, it was lots of fun and totally worth it. Getting there: we went by taxi. He didn't know where...More

I'm sure that for a lot of people this is a great think to do. But I have trouble seeing in the dark. This was SO not a fun experience for me!

My wife and I are wondering when, if ever, we will top the experience of Grutas Calcehtok. Due to the reviews here, it was with some trepidation that we chose the extreme course, as opposed to the adventure or family options. Our guide, nicknamed Chava,...More

Yucatan has a lot of caves. The best known are Loltún - beautiful and highly recommended, but also very touristy. Calcehtok instead doesn't have illumination, so that you go into the caves with the flashlight of your guide - quite an experience! It has huge...More

Hi, I'm not sure--if your child is well-coordinated then it would possibly be OK, but it's pretty muddy and there are lots of rocks and boulders to squeeze through. I would think it'd be better for maybe a 7-8 year old. Good... More
