Beautiful!

This is a must see - it was only a 3 block walk from the main downtown area. You can swim or just enjoy the views. Was not crowded (especially in the morning). Loved it!

I stumbled upon this place with my bike and loved every inch of this place. I took my time going around the full cenote and watching a bunch of young men jumping into the water. I did not take a swim and it looked so inviting.

When we heard there was a cenote in the core of the town of Valladolid, I was expecting something small. How wrong I was. This is a beautiful place to swim and spend an afternoon, or even just to visit and have a look. Entry fee is equivalent to about USD$2. Keep in mind that the cenote is extremely deep... More

If you don't want to take a taxi or a bus from Valladolid, this is a good choice: You can walk here or take a cheap cab ride ($20 MXD from the Monastery, I think it was). The private path from the restaurant to the cenote has much better views than the public entrance: trees, birds, and (in our case)... More

This is one of those postcard-perfect cenotes that will earn you bragging rights on Instagram. Very inexpensive (only a few dollars), you can spend as much time as you wish here until it closes near dusk. There is a beautifully haunting staircase that leads you down into this breath-taking sunken spot that is half inside a cave and half exposed... More

After a trip to nearby Maya Ruins, this was a nice way to cool off with a swim and dip in the Cenote. It is close to the central square in Valladoid

Cheap and basic Cenote but a lot of fun and easy to get to as its in the center of town! The 10m (maybe more) cliff to jump into the cenote is awesome!

The visit to the cenote from friends say it is a wonderful rejuvenation! They enjoyed the swim in the cenote. However found it difficult to access the entrance to the cenote. Many people blocking the way.

Winding down stone steps, which seem to get steeper as you go further down, into cool water - far removed from the heat of the surrounding ground - swimming under a shower of water falling 10 or 15 meters from the surface layer above, and then floating gently into a series of grottos. Enchanting, our way lit only by a... More

We had a late afternoon visit to the cenote. It is easy to access, walking distance from most of the downtown hotels etc. Good for a swim, but no facilities to change (unless upstairs at the restaurant). Fun place.
