This was the perfect little oasis that my family was looking for. The cool clear water, the beautiful sailfin mollies, and the cliff at just the right height to jump off of were all a wonderful additions to our vacation.

Well worth a visit. $5 admission. Beautiful and cold water. A rare thing in Mexico. 😎 lots of beautiful fish and some large catfish too. The kids loved jumping off the cliffs.

Exstraordinary cenote! It was not too much full of people but still touristc! The water was crystal Clear and not deep (main feature for me, I am a Little sceared by very deep cenotes). 70 pesos each to enter (very cheap)! Very reccommended!

This was my first visit to a cenote. I changed on my way down to the cenote, and then jumped in. It wasn't that special. The 3m cliff jump was a but more exciting. However, I had money stolen from my bag. My own fault I know, but still not cool. 100 MXN entrance fee.

This Cenote was a recommendation from a local and although the water was cool and beautiful, it wasn't what we expected as we had been to a below ground cenote before and thought that's what we were going to again. A favorite for locals (that's who was mostly there), a cliff to dive from into a deep area of the... More

We had hoped to visit Cenote Azul on our last trip, and I am so glad we made it this time! It is beautiful, well maintained, and just the ticket when you have had too much sun. Single-Digit Son jumped off the cliff, while Tween Daughter demurred... I think she was actually cold... In Mexico in July, that is quite... More

Small, mainly locals here. 7$ charge. Fun cliff to jump off, beautiful cool water. Shallow and deeper areas, good for small children. This is a small one a deeper area, with two or three shallow snorkle areas. Snorkle under cliff is beautiful, deep, cave like almost. Go early..

This cenote is open-air and is made up several small pools. The day that we went it was quite crowded. It is certainly not the most beautiful cenote either. However, it is suitable for small children, since there are many areas that they can wade around the water. There is a small cliff for diving and jumping, which is fun.... More
