After a hot day viewing the beauty of the Tulum Ruins we took a taxi to the Grand Cenote. This was my favorite part of Tulum. The Cenote water is crystal clear and just beautiful. It s so refreshing and the water is nice and...More

We had an awesome time snorkelling here. Great way to cool off and get away from the heat. Was a little busy mid day but got quieter closer to 4pm. There's a nice space up top with hammocks and a grassy space to chill/hang out...More

I have been before, but wanted my group of friends to see it so we came after our trip to Coba. We arrived around noon, so it was already crowded, but we found that once in the water you had plenty of room to swim...More

Just about 4 minutes outside of Tulum. Very inexpensive place to relax on a lazy afternoon. Plenty of free parking and it's just off the highway. You can rent the snorkeling equipment on site. Water is not deep so safe for the kids.

Visiting the cenote was the highlight of our trip. We visited with Thomson tours and received lunch and a tour of the Mayan village nearby as well as our entry to the cenote. I would highly recommend taking a combined trip to the cenote.

After the raving reviews, we had high expectations but were disappointed. When we arrived, we had to get our bathing suits from our suit cases in our car. Some of the maintenance staff was eyeballing us and our suit cases, including a young unfriendly looking...More

The cenotes were beautiful, however I hadn't expected there to be quite so many people. You could hardly swim and it was very noisy. I felt quite sorry for the turtles and fish in there. It was also quite expensive, but be sure to pay...More

We were really disappointed with this cenote - the entry fee was very expensive, it was very crowded and the water quality was bad (bad smell, sun screen on the surface and quite a lot of bird droppings from the birds nesting above) and it...More

This is a beautiful cenote where one could pass many hours. It was very kid friendly and a great place for our son to try out snorkeling. He also loved snorkeling with the little turtles and relaxing in the hammock.

I do not know, I would bet that if you ask at the hotel concierge they could help. good luck. Always save an expired Drivers License to give for this sort of thing.

You could ride a bike here no problem and you don't need a tour. There are plenty of taxis in the Tulum area if you happen to need one....I can't remember the fee, but it was reasonable. We brought in water and some snacks... More

I highly recommend going on your own with a car. I think tickets are around $5-7 dollars per person. By avoiding the tour you will not only save money, but it will free up more time in your day to do other things.
