We were directed here by our hotel concierge, since it was on the way from Playa del Carmen to Tulum. This was by far my most memorable experience during our trip. It's absolutely beautiful and not crowded! Also a plus, it was surprising affordable to enter (or at least I didn't feel I was ripped off)! This cenote is truly... More

This is an amazing place to swim and enjoy the day. It is in the jungle and it is a lot of fun for all families. There is a place where you can walk in and just sit. You can dive of the cliff or dive off the platform.

The water in this cenote is very cool and refreshing and there are several areas you can visit. Unfortunately, it was pretty crowded when we visited (during the school holidays) but that's just luck. I would still recommend visiting.

Beautiful still very natural setting. Not as deep as Cristalino, so not as good for swimming but much more natural. And a couple pesos cheaper too!

We spent part of the day at Tulum in the hot sun. This was a welcome way to cool off in the refreshing water. Water shoes are a must. The rocks are quite rough at the entrance points, once you get in the rocks are mostly moss covered. We went one a Sunday and it was very crowded with lots... More

Azul cenote is an above ground cenote so if you want to experience a cenote but being underground makes you feel uncomfortable, this may be a good choice. This is the second or third time I have visited this cenote, and have enjoyed it on each occasion. It may not be the biggest cenote in the area, but it has... More

After reading the reviews thought we would check out this place. Sure glad we did! A great place to spent a hot day. Rode the Collectivo for 30 pesos per person from PDC. Entrance fee at the Cenote Azul 70 pesos per person. We got there just before 11 on a weekday and there really weren't many people. Lots of... More

Loved it the first time around and needed to show our friends the place. It's refreshing cool water is just what's needed on a hot Mayan day. We paid about 6 USD to get in and you can spend as long as you want there. If you take the collectivo on the hi way ask if they can take you... More

I went here the other day and contrary to earlier reviews it is not 10 pesos to get in but 70 pesos. Still very reasonable though!. They have very basic service here but there is a tiny shop that has snacks and rents snorkels etc if you need them. The water is quite warm compared to other cenotes which is... More
