Visited Cenote Cristal and Escondido this week. Don't expect something like Gran Cenote or Dos Ojos but it's a nice way to spend a couple hours. You could definitely bike but we took a cab, and the driver returned a couple hours late. Pay 120...More

you can get here easily by bike or hitchhiking, is 10 min away from the town. Don't expect one of those charming and fantastic cenote in a cave that you see on the guide, these two ponds are fresh water little lakes in which you...More

We found out there were two here and both were awesome for different reasons. Escondido had a rope swing and diving. It was beautiful deep blue water. Crystal had a great dock you could climb and jump off. Neither were crowded and very well kept.

It may not be one of the famous ones, but it sure is beautiful. It is open air surrounded by jungle. Especially at opening time, when you are the only one there, with just the butterflies, dragonflies and the birds. The water is clear. There...More

Cute little Cenote with a rope for those shy to swim the length. Don't forget to see the better Cenote across the street with the same ticket. And don't walk to the 2nd Cenote - drive there or bike there. I liked the 2nd one...More

You get to see both for 140 pesos. A 20 minute cycle ride from Tulum city centre. We preferred Crystal but they are both non commercial and quiet. They are across each other divided by a highway. Crystal is 39 metres or so from the...More

Perfect and refreshing, wonder after a day at the hot beach and great to get into fresh water. Very worth visiting.

Lovely! You can catch cheap collectivos to head out here and back. Crystal is across the street from Escondido and your price of admission gets you in both. Visit both but we preferred Escondido! Less developed cenotes. Great for a picnic and reading a book

A few dollars to enter and you can also go to Cenote Escondido across the street. This one has a platform about 15 feet up that you can jump from, kids loved it!! The water is very clean. The cenote is wide open and you...More
