This was a nice place to cool off for an afternoon. It is more of a hang out than a snorkeling cenote'. There is a bank you can jump from. If a cart comes by selling tamales, treat yourself! Also, don't forget your free pedicure- which means the little fish nibble on the dry skin on your feet!

We really loved Crystal and Escondito, they were very very fun. We started out at Crystal and jumping off the high dive was great fun, the water felt great and it was clean and clear. Our favorite however was Escondito across the road. The rope swing was a blast and jumping off the ledge was awesome. We are open water... More

3 of us stopped here after a 3 hour drive, maybe at 3pm. There were other people there, too, but we still managed to relax and have fun. There's a bigger cenote (more like a lake) and a smaller water hole (pond-ish, but with cenote water) on the side. We had this pond to ourselves. If I remember correctly in... More

You buy your tickets at crystal and it gets you into both. Crystal was fun because of the high jump, but escondito across the street was way more beautiful and fun. The deep, clear blue water makes for good snorkelling--we even got to watch a group of divers enter the cave below. The cliffs are fun to jump off of... More

This cave was darker than most we dove but still a fantastic dive! Not a lot of room for parking but there was plenty of room to kit up and for lunch.

For 120 pesos per person, you can swim in this cenote and another one across the road and down a path about .5 km or so. Crystal is small and circular and about 25 ft deep. There's not much in the way of fish here but they have a platform you can jump from at a height of about 10... More

We like taking dips in some of the smaller cenotes in the area. The folks at Crystal wanted 120 pesos to go for a swim( the car wash is $5). The property was nice, and the sink hole was a nice swim. Me and another dude were the only ones there. I ended up paying 50 pesos and swam for... More

Everyone has to experience seeing a cenote. We brought our own snorkeling gear and dedicated a rainy day to snorkeling and comparing cenotes. I enjoyed this one with all of the mangroves.

Best part was it was barely populated and non touristy, but not crystal clear and muddy surroundings. Nice for a refreshing little dip but probably better to see a larger cenote if you have limited time.
