Fell in love with the Cenote -- not to be missed...just don't take the tour.

Visiting this Cenote was part of a day trip to Chichen Itza. The Cenote is considered sacred to the Mayan people and it certainly gave off that vibe. I spent about 45 minutes just... read more

Visiting this Cenote was part of a day trip to Chichen Itza. The Cenote is considered sacred to the Mayan people and it certainly gave off that vibe. I spent about 45 minutes just floating around in the water. It was a supremely tranquil experience. The water was a deep blue, a perfect temperature, and extremely clear and clean. With... More

Cenotes are magical places in the Yucatan where cool water fills a limestone cavern to form a natural swimming pool. This one is particularly nice because it's gorgeous and, somewhat off the beaten path since it's not on the route between Cancun and Chichen-Itza. Lovely cool water surrounded by ferns growing out of the limestone; particularly pretty to see the... More

My husband and I stopped at this cenote on our day trip to Chichen Itza when we were in Tulum and the Yucatan peninsula for our honeymoon. This cenote was one of the highlights of our trip! The cenote is GORGEOUS. The water is so clear and so blue and you can see fish and fish and more fish. And... More

The pictures here don't do the beauty of this cenote justice. The sun was shining, the temperature of the water was perfect, and as I was floating in the water, I couldn't help but think that I was dreaming. Bring goggles and you'll be able to see plenty of little fish swimming near the surface! Would definitely recommend the Cenote... More

If you want a relaxing and peaceful time in a cenote, this is the one. We were there for 2 hours on a hot sunny day and did not see anyone. apart from the guide that was overlooking for security reasons. Entrance is cheap, life vests free, very clean ad spacious changing rooms and bathrooms. A must see off the... More

Angel from Lawson Tours brought my 85 year old uncle and I to this gorgeous place. The swim was very refreshing. Would have liked to see more of the place, but we had a full day. They do make you wear life jackets, make sure you try on first as mine was too big and uncomfortable. If you have a... More

Located in a small pueblo - 15 km or so from Piste. Quiet and without crowds. No tour buses. Refreshing swim.

My girlfriend and I flew to Chichén Itza with Fly Tours Cancun, and asked them if they could take us to Yodzkonot instead if Ik-Kil. It was a good decision. Ik-Kil is always crowded and Yodzkonot is near the town of Pisté, which is very picturesque and has its own Chac Mool where you can get a picture. The cenote... More

Cenote Yokdzonot is off the beaten path, about 18 kilometers from Chichen Itza beyond the simple town of Piste. If you get lost ask the locals for directions. If you could choose only one cenote in all of the Yucatan, choose to go to this one. I don't need to add any photos to those already posted by others. I'll... More
