Very good ... but small ....

If you can only have one cenote experience, this is a good representation of a classic Mexican cenote, but it's actually a bit small and get a bit crowded.

Loved this Cenote, we cycled from Tulum which was easy and flat. Gets a bit busy at this Cenote so arrive early and enjoy the clear water and exploring an underwater cave. Take or rent snorkel gear - Cenotes are kinda pointless if you can't admire the underworld :)

This stunning cenote (about 15 minutes outside Tulum) is home to crystal clear waters, fish and turtles! Rent a snorkel to explore.

Me and my family went here after visiting the Mayan ruins of Coba. It was awesome! Different than anything I've ever experienced. Beautiful clear water, cool cave. I saw bats while swimming, where else can you do that? Highly recommended!

The water is so beautiful and clear definitely a sight to see!! Carry cash 2.00 or 80 pesos if you need a life jacket.

Easy, cheap, and memorable. Great, affordable cab service. Can't imagine this place would be too enjoyable if crowded, so go early.

I was determined that no trip to Yucatan is complete without a visit to one of the infamous cenotes. Therefore, we headed to Grand Cenote just outside of Tulum. You are charged 150 pesos for what is a very underwhelming experience in my opinion. The place is crawling with tourists and not much to look at. I can imagine that... More

We did not like how confusing the pricing was, but it was a nice activity on our tip. The caves were cool, and the water was so clear!

We like to explore different cenotes especially after a long day under the sun. There is nothing better then a refreshing swim. To be honesty this was not our favorite one. We came at the end of the day to avoid a lot of ppl and it was still pretty crowded which makes it hard to enjoy the swim and... More

This is one of the most awesoem cavern dives as it is shallow and loaded with stalagtites. You can swim and snorkel here as well and experience the beauty of mexico's cenote beauty first hand.
