My girlfriend and I biked to the Gran Cenote which only took about 30 minutes from the far side of Tulum. We were pleasantly surprised at how close it was. Similar distance to the beach with ample room on the side of the road. We...More

This visit didn’t quite compare with cenotes dos ojos but was still worth a visit. The water wasn’t as deep or clear and it was very crowded however it was refreshing and the turtle colony was nice to see

Awesome place with clear water to admire caves and rock formations! Even a few turtles and fishes swim around. I'd put 5 stars if it weren't for the huge tourist masses shuffling around.. Probably better early in the morning or later in the afternoon. The...More

Nice for how close it is to hotels. Looks prettier in pictures. They have lockers which is cool. Very touristy and has a dirty feel to it.

We’ve visited 5 cenotes in the area and this one is by far my favorite. Places you can snorkel back into, under the cave to another open spot. There are turtles, the water is incredibly clear and not as cool as some of the others....More

We got there around 12 noon in peak season - and it wasn’t too crowded. Not sure about later - we stayed for an hour and had a great time. Enjoy😊👍

if you go to Grand Cenote, you should also hit Dos Ojos...get them both in...for snorkeling, it was only about 45 minutes at Grand Cenote

There's no food sold on site. However, it's not far from town so you can grab a taxi for cheap and try a few local spots!
