Beautiful Cenote

Really peaceful place away from all the hustle and bustle of the resorts. Clear water, beautiful scenery, and fish swimming around everywhere.

The lagoon itself is beautiful and totally worth visiting. Wish I could say the same about the food and service.

I had never seen a cenote before and was I blown away at the natural beauty of it!! When you are swimming in it you feel like you have gone to a far away place of beauty and wonder. If you don't visit this one at least visit one of the many other cenotes in Mexico. DON'T MISS OUT ON... More

This is such a fun cenote. Lots of small pools for a quiet dip and a big pool that is deep enough for jumping off the top of the cliff. The snorkeling was AMAZING with thousands of fish of all colors and types. The trails were well maintained around the multitude of pools and the price was right at 80... More

We travelled from Sensimar Seaside Suites in a taxi. The journey taking about 10 minutes each way and costing 200 Pesos. After paying 80 Pesos each entry we walked down a rocky path for a few minutes passing 2 smaller pools before reaching the main cenote. The only toilet/ changing room is by the main entrance. Once in the cenote... More

We arrived at 8:30 am and were the first ones there! We had the place to ourselves for 30 minutes! Then it started to slowly fill up - so come early! We brought our snorkel gear and swam with thousands of fish! Dip your feet into the water at the spot where you face 2 caves - the fish will... More

So incredibly beautiful. We arrived there way too early but the caretaker let us in before opening. We had it all to ourselves for two hours. Mind blowing beauty and fish everywhere. It never got crowded even after opening ingredients. A note, the people of the Mexican Riviera exceptionally nice. I'll be back!

It was one of the highlights of our trip to Yucatan peninsula. I enjoyed every moment spent in this cenote. I went in the afternoon around 4 pm on a Friday and there were lots of people but I would not say it was crowded. The first part (as you come down on the path) had a significant number of... More

All i can say is this place was one of the most relaxing parts of our trip. Its like swimming in your tropical fish tank. Very cool and worth every penny. Rent a snorkel and mask and just enjoy . Remember biodegradable sunscreen and bugspray. Also some cheap $5 water shoes.

Take a collectivo for 15 minutes from PDC and enjoy this wonderful cenote. LIttle fishes that will nibble on your feet. Great snorkeling and a little rock to jump from. A must if you come to PDC. Go in the morning (opens 8:30) to avoid the crowds and the strong sun (you can't wear sunscreen!)
