Stopped at Gran Cenote after a trip to the ruins in Coba. It was my first time to a cenote, wasn't really sure what to expect. Nice bathrooms and changing area. The lockers were located down by where you entered the water. It seemed really congested at the entry point, lots of people just hanging out by and on the... More

the cent was amazing, it was the first cent of this type and I was amazed by the beauty of the caves, the clear crystal water and the underwater caves. It is one of the most popular cenotes in Tulum so expect to have some crowed around, try and get there early in the morning to avoid too many people,... More

One of few places around Tulum that was crowded with tourists. The snorkel area was not that big as we expected. We did not scuba diving. The employees at the entrence wasn't very service minded.

When we arrived, there was a big tourist bus parked outside and the person at the counter would not let us look at the cenonte to determine if it was too crowded, so we did not waste the 150 p entry fee to go in.

Accessible, well priced cenote activity ( 150 pesos). Good spot for kids as there are areas that are shallow enough for them to wade in. Limited snacks available, don't show up hungry. Good spot to while away an hour or two swimming in crystal clear waters.

I honestly expected more (until now that is the only one I've seen). It is little, I haven't seen many interesting animals, two mini turtles and an iguana outside near the entrance. The cave wasn't special. Apparently there are better cenotes near valladolid town

This was a wonderful 2 hours in clear blue water snorkeling. We loved it. They have lockers for valuables and they are small so bring essentials. It is 100 peso without equipment and we had our own. Kids probably need life jackets as there are deep cave like places. It is a bit crowded and commercial but so worth the... More

Grand Cenote is a "grand" attraction and totally doable with toddlers. While one side is deep and beautifully cavernous (& packed more visitors), the back side offered a shallow portion with waist deep water. This part is more doable with toddlers. The Cenote water is clear, has many fish and caves are littered with stalagmites and stalactites. The entry fee... More

This was such a unique experience, made even moreso by paying a bit extra for a snorkel and seeing underneath and all around us

This place is well manicured on entry. There is a place to rent your snorkel and mask and lockers to store your valuables. It is best to go early in the morning, as it doesn't feel the same with lots of people. The light is beautiful and the birds and caves re something to see.
