This cenote is actually multiple cenotes all in one place. The paths throughout are well-maintanied and easy to walk, with clear signs to help you get around, because it is a pretty big place overall. There is an "open" cenote, which is wide and sunny, surrounded by tropical foliage, and full of beautiful fish and underwater flora. It is perfect... More

We rolled up to this off the beaten path cenote by chance but are very glad we did. Was very affordable- If I recall we paid about $25/person and that included snorkel gear and the two zip lines on the property. One cenote was under a cave and didnt have many fish but amazing rock formations to swim underneath. The... More

My partner dove here while I snorkelled, it was a lot of fun. We booked through ProDive, dive master, Baptiste was very knowledgeable. My guide was Fernando, he was very nice and friendly. I loved the cenotes, esp where it was SO hot there in the jungle.

We asked a local driver to take us to a cenote where we could float alone and that wasn't crowded so he took us here. We were greeted cheerfully and were the only ones there at 9AM on a Sunday! It only cost us 500 pesos to get in as well. We didn't have to wear life vests, helmets or... More

We did these cenotes after a morning swim at Akumal. The cenotes are beautiful, and were refreshing when you jumped in to swim! Would recommend these for half a day excursion to anyone to experience them!

This was an awesome experience to not only see but to experience the swimming in a Cenote and diving off the cliffs, actually they don't like you diving and want you,to enter the water feet first ....oppps

Very cool to dive in enclosed area with no waves or current. Not much marine life but the cave formations make it a bucket list to-do item

A quiet cenote with beautiful diving that feels off the beaten track. I had some homemade empanadas for lunch and they were tasty! Not very touristy feeling at all.

Walked (ran really- be careful!) across highway from Barcello. Looking for cristalino cenote and came across chiken ha first. Was right next to kanten chi cenote which is about 800 pesos for guided tour. We had a group of 11 and negotiated with the guy in the booth to get in for 200 pesos instead of 250 each. Walked 20...

3 cenotes, one open with a wide range of fish and surrounded with plants and birdchirping, one cave with lot of"spa fish", and one just for take pictures. Long distance on foot, but worth to see it. Not so many people, entrance fee is ok, 200 pesos / p. Showers, toalettes were clean and nice designed.
