Cenotes of Cuzama
Take a trip back in time on this Progreso tour that takes you up close to the area's gorgeous natural attractions. While you explore this area, you'll come across some of nature's finest sights. Book your trip today for a Progreso tour like no other.
This Progreso sightseeing tour starts with a trip to the town of Chunkana which is approximately 1 hour from the cruise terminal. Once you arrive at Chunkana, you'll head over to some horse-drawn buggys that will take you to the first cenote (sinkhole); each buggy can hold four passengers. These underwater sinkholes are a sight to behold.
Aside from the various cenotes, you'll lay eyes on other natural formations like stalactites and stalagmites. Out of the three cenotes you'll visit, you have the chance to swim in two of them. You won't find a better tour of the area's natural wonders. Reserve your spot today and get ready to take lots of photos.

It was a small group, just 5 of us, and our guide was relaxed and friendly. He was full of fascinating information. We went to four different cenotes, each with a different vibe, all of them full of cool, clear water. I had been wanting to do this ever since my first visit to the Yucatan 32 years ago and the trip did not disappoint. I highly recommend this excursion.

My wife and I really enjoyed the day with our guides from this outfit. Nice to get a look at the surrounding area beyond Progresso. The cenotes are spectacular.

This excursion was the best. However, when we got at the port there were no one from the agency waiting for us. There were a booth with the same company's name (Iguana Maya) with a very rude employee who just told us they have nothing to do with the excursion. The Progresso's bus driver saw the discussion and was much nicer and explained he would be able to take us to the location we would meet with the agent. After that little confusion and misunderstanding we met the agent who took us to the Cenotes. His name is Manuel and he was just excellent. The cars pulled by horses were another special treat (and a happy surprise). How fun! After swimming we were hungry so he took us to a wonderful restaurant by the beach. I'd recommend and take this excursion again....
Driver picked us up where we were dropped off from the bus. Easy to find. Went on a fairly long drive (an hour and a half of so) through some really authentic looking places. Had the chance to see some Mayan ruins as well as a horse drawn rikety cart ride to these really neat caves that you could swim in. Bring a bathing suit and some cash to tip your car driver & cart drivers. Really enjoyed this excursion!

My husband & I were the only ones on the tour. The guide was very nice but we quickly realized he knew very little english. The drive was about an hour. When we got to Cuzama there were several horses and carts waiting. The cenotes were about a 15 minute ride on the rail cart. The first cenote we were taken to was the biggest and prettiest one of the three we saw. The water was cool and very blue. Had we known that this one was the nicest, we would have stayed and swam more. We got back on the rail cart for about 5 minutes & went to the other 2 cenotes. The second one was a small hole with a wooden ladder that spiraled down. It was really pretty interesting. The third cenote had a large opening but the swimming hole was rather small.. We swam in all three cenotes with goggles and life vests that the tour provided. We had plenty of time to go shopping in town(Progresso) had we wanted too but we decided to go directly back to ship.
