Only a 20 dollar ride from Playa del Carmen, beautiful cenotes with amazing formations. Get there early or late in the afternoon to beat the crowds, 40 dollars to get in with equipment, a little more then other reviewers reported, but I was the only one there. David was my guide and did a great job explaining what the formations... More

We went to the cenote by taxi on October 11th, 2014 at 9:00am, after reading reviews on tripadvisor. No one was there and it was appeared to be shut down. Hope we save some people the cab fare!

This was an incredible cenote to visit! I think it was about $20 per person and they provide a snorkel, wet suit, and a guide. The tour lasted about 1 hour.

Grab a taxi and head for the cenotes! The taxi driver will wait and bring you back as well. Four of us went on this trip and I think spent about 30 USD each; well worth it. The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and swimming in the dark of the freshwater caves is a unique experience. Since these caves are created... More

This was a great place to dive. Geology and some fish life. The diving was easy and for those that have not experienced haloclines (when sea and fresh water mix) it is a Must!

Definitely worth going! Caution: very steep stairs and rocks overhead. Water is really cold! Bats in caves and will fly about, especially if you shine your flashlight on them. It is an incredible adventure!

$20 USD if you have your own equipment, $30 if you don't. You get a guide and a 2 hour tour of the amazing cenotes on the property. We came on a Sunday afternoon and were the only 2 people we saw. Our guide George was funny, informational and overall a great guy to show us the amazing caves. For... More
