Nice place to get to know 30minutes away from Holbox pier. It is also part of the "classic" three island tour that everybody offers

This is a nice cenote to jump in and cool down. The wáter is clear and very refreshing. It is just a square cenote so its not that interesting in compared to other cenotes but nice for a quick swim.

beautiful clear water pool in the preservation. Only way to get here is by boat with a tour but well worth the time

The 7 different colors of the water makes an amazing experience. Try to rent a sailboat and not a boat to contribute to the environment. The lagoon isn't too big. If people start renting boats the lagoon will start getting dirty of fuel and its...More

Gorgeous clear cenote with water flowing in from the bottom. Nice lookout tower to get pictures from above. Refreshing!

Very underwhelming cenote, crowded with tourists whose diving and kicking takes the clarity of of the water. Poor maintenance from a small "group" of locals that charge $15 MXN to let you in and don't bother to clean animal feces from the spring deck,maintain proper...More

This is a nice (little) fresh water Cenote. Since it is quiet small you should go on a cloudy day, otherwise it will be really busy. There are also some lovely raccoons.

Went on a three island tour and this was one of the stops. I’ve been to Mexico before and seen real Cenotes and that’s interesting, this is just a really small fresh water lagoon. Nothing that I’d recommend spending money to see.

It was a cool spot to visit and go for a dip. The water is cold and sweet! There are iguanas and raccoons roaming around the area which is fun to watch. They have a little restaurant in the location as well. The cenote is...More

I went to this place on a tour at 9am, which meant our boat had the place to ourselves. Highly recommend this hour, because if it were the usually crowded situation, it would have not been very nice. It is much smaller than the photos...More

The tour is by boat so unless you have a boat I would think tour is the best way to go- only 20-30$ USD per person. Think I paid $800 pesos for the 2 of us. You can sign up for the tour in el centro de holbox - there are... More
