This was a really special place but by the time we got there at 11:30am it was so crowded it was hard to swim around and enjoy on our own. I would recommend getting there early. It was also $10/person to get in. Our favorite part was the cave you could swim through!

Would definitely recommend, just bring your own biodegradable sunscreen. They won't let you in with other kinds and to buy it there very expensive.

As the title nice place to spend some hours of a day in tulum. U can snorkeling and see the beautiful cave full filled with fish and turtles or just stay inside the small park and enjoying the peace and the sun.

Lovely cenote close to Tulum pueblo. One of our favourite days of the trip ( we spent a few hours here ). We found it was quiet here and as other people have mentioned people have arrived in waves. Snorkel hire was reasonable but better to bring your own (300 pesos deposit to hire plus 90 pesos per person). Setting... More

This is one of the largest cenotes in the area, with facilities to handle a good number of people. The water is crystal clear, warm, and filled with fish. There are many areas to swim back into and appreciate the stalagtites and stalagmites, as well as phenomenal numbers of birds and bats. Make sure you go early in the morning... More

MX$180 to get in, MX$30 for a locker. Place to shower to get cream off. Actual cenote is stunning, quite open and exposed to enough light to yield that turquoise blue glow. Some turtles that you can get close to. Beware of FOMO (fear of missing out) watching the SCUBA divers heading deep into the actual cenote; looks amazing but... More

Drove there with a small group of people from the main touristy area in Tulum. Easily a ten minute drive, if that, directly off the highway, you can't miss it. Seemed like it might be a pretty long bike ride, but several taxis were waiting as well so that could be a good option. $10 to get in and maybe... More
