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

This is a really beautiful site and very quiet. The water is warm and is a great place to swim. Picnic table were available for a picnic lunch or you can have lunch in the restaurant on site. We had a picnic. There is a $60 peso entrance fee, a place at the top to change and then you walk... 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

My husband and I stopped here midday after visiting Chichen Itza on our way to Merida. It's down a dirt road with no clear parking, but as there aren't many cars in the area you're fine pulling up anywhere across from the ticket hut. There are changing rooms, bathrooms, a restaurant, a zipline, campground, and an area to rappel down... More

We stopped here during a tour with Mayan Explorers. I was worried that the cold waters in the cenote would be too cold for me, but it was amazing! After being so hot at the ruins, this was the perfect way to cool off and feel refreshed. We gladly wore the life jackets and spent about 1/2 hour in the... More

I have 2 young kids 4 and 6 and 1 big kid (ie my hubby) and we greatly enjoyed this plce. The place was not busy but that was fine with us and did not reflect the beauty or the fun we had at the cenote. Kids were free adults charged a small pittance (60 pesos each) and free life... More
