I've never seen anything like this. When we arrived we were the only ones there so we had the place totally to ourselves. If only our camera hadn't died before we got down into the cenote, not that pictures would have done it justice.

My girlfriend and I visited the Cenote in the afternoon after visiting chichen itza in the morning. The place is very quiet as most of the big touristic bus are going to the other Cenotes close to the Mayan temple. Go for a lunch at the restaurant it cheap and the food is amazing! Cooked by the local woman from... More

A really nice place to visit if you want to swim in the cavern. You will need ti shower in chlorine when you arrive to make sure you do not infect the pool. The catfish are blind so may bump into you. If you dont want to swim there is not much to do. A small coffee shop, restaurant and... More

A litlle badly indicated from the road so look out for a big banner, the cenote is 300 m further, you will see the cabanas of the ecovillage. Fee is 60 pesos. There is a little restaurant with very friendly owners and a good cook. Very good local dishes (tacos, quesadillas, empanadas,..) and really cheap. The cenote is beautiful and... More

The Yokdzonot Cenote is gorgeous. Plus, they have a small restaurant where you can have delicious and inexpensive authentic Mexican food. For less than 10 USD, we had a fantastic meal for two, including a pitcher of the best lemonade i have ever had. I would recommend to go at noon, have lunch, rest for a while and then go... More

Wonderful place run by great women working for their community. When we were there it was just us and two others and that was mid-day. It's about 20 minutes from chitzen itza (in comparison to about 10 min to the cenote were all the bus loads of people go) and def worth the trip. Ask a taxi outside of the... More

We went to Yokdzonot after trying to go for a swim in Ik Kil, where the crowds were ridiculous and the whole experience of being herded around with passengers from not less than 30 tour buses was just not pleasant. At Yokdzonot we were greeted by very friendly local people that run the place like a cooperative, and shared the... More

If you are going to Chichen Itza, you must make time for a small detour to this place! The admission was something cheap, less than $10 USD. It is owned by a cooperative of Mayan women (and a few men). We came in, ordered lunch, and hit the cenote for swimming. When we finished swimming in the beautiful cenote, we... More
