We stopped at this cenote en route from merida to valladolid as we heard it was a nice one in the area and much less visited than those on the Chichen Itza Route. The cenote is nice uncrowded and offers a relaxing open cenote in a natural setting. You can jump in along the sides. There seemed to be other... More

We went here after reading the fantastic TA reviews and it did not disappoint!! The cenote was beautiful and the water was clear enough to see fish. Our boys (5 and 7) had a blast! The restaurant was awesome!!! Simple food but very fresh and well prepared - one of our best meals in a 2 week trip to Mexico.

Yokdzonot is the name not only for the cenote but also for the attached restaurant. It was the best restaurant we visited during our whole Mexico trip. Excellent food for very low prices! If you want to make a perfect day, we suggest to go to Chichen Itzá very early in the morning, then drive to yokdzonot, have lunch at... More

Great cenote to visit. We went to ik kil as well. They are similar looking but this one has almost no people (we we're alone there). You can swim around with catfish and other little fish. The restaurant is great and cheap the panuchos were the best we've had.

Our driver brought us here after we inquired about cenotes on the way from Medira to Playa Del Carmen, after visiting Chichen Itza. For just 70 MNP we thouroughIy enjoyed ourselves. It was just what we needed. :)

We absolutely loved this cenote - we were even lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves! We were absolutely underwhelmed by Ik Kil as it seems to me to be more like a public swimming pool than a natural cenote. We were so glad then to stop at this gem! Unlike some of the others which have built... More

This is a very beautiful sinkhole. Just decided to go off road a bit and was amazed at stopping. Very nice food and cold drinks. Very family oriented and just a few hunderd yards off the paced highway. A definite recommended stop for the thrill seekers.

It was one of the nature wonder. I had seen the picture of the CENOTE long time ago and I planned to visit the site and now I got the opportunity to see this. Cenote is one kind of experience that you can not see anywhere in the world but Chichen Itza.

We swam here twice, and it was lovely both times. The first time was after visiting Chichen Itza, and a thunderstorm started as we got into the water. It was magical! The second time was pretty amazing as well. The water was very clean. There are small blind catfish in the water, which are pretty cool. This cenote was much... More
