A bit over crowded on the day of our visit but I can see how great it can be if you go there when all tourists are not there all at the same time with 20 buses.

We came here as part of 3-island tour from Holbox. It was really really crowded with tourists (as in, you're bumping into people all the time in the water or on the decks around the water). Granted, the water was nice and cool and refreshing....More

This is a nice change from the ocean - a beautiful secluded freshwater natural spring lagoon. There's also a high tower where you can see the jungle around.

If you're a crab lover you will very much enjoy a huge array of tiny to massive crabs on your walk to the lagoon, they live in massive holes in the ground that to the untrained eye look like they should house tarantulas. Toilets were...More

It could be better. Very busy and a bit unorganized to enjoy. Nice boat trip but negotiating the price can be a headache.

I have been to a lot nicer cenotes in Mexico. This one is very small, too many tour boats were all crammed into the dock and it was a real zoo. The cenote itself felt refreshing but there was garbage visible in a few areas...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
