Wow, we loved this place. May have been something to do that we had the place all to ourselves. We arrived around 1p after we left Merida and were driving down to Campeche. Water temp in early December was so refreshing and the water crystal...More

We weren’t sure if any cenotes would be open in January 1, and didn’t find any info online or any phone numbers listed, so we took a chance and drove out there. Glad we did. This place is lovely. A tad crowded but the water...More

There are two cenotes, they’re pretty small but totally worth ti, just getting there is a beautiful narrow road.

If you go to visit the Uxmal ruins and you need some refreshment, then go X Batun and enjoy it! It is an open type cenote. It is quite nice but we were unlucky and met a big group of noisy people so we couldn't...More

It’s pretty but not much space to swim. It might be dry season so the water is low, but very limited swimming area. There’s a sectioned off area for aquatic plants, which is good because those filter and clean a body of water, however there...More

This was a great find, even as it was quite difficult to find! The cenote was fairly large, with cool crystalline waters that provided a wonderful break from the nearly 90-degree temperatures of the day. It's fairly easy of access--a short dirt path leads from...More

Our only mistake was going on a Sunday...very crowded. And with so many people in the water it became cloudy. On a previous visit we had the place to ourselves. But we are only guests here and enjoyed watching the local families having fun. It...More

Great stop after a few hours of Uxmal (which is enough of Puuc for 1 day) I shouldn't write a review actually because this cenote was so quiet and idyllic I'm afraid more tourists might ruin that We even got an iguana angry for invading...More

It is certainly worth the trip from Mérida to visit these (and other cenotes). But the photo here is NOT X Batun, it is 800 meters away and called Cenote Dzonbakal. Dzonbakal is really great, a cave open to the sky with sparkling water and...More
