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.

This is a beautiful Cenote with a diving platform and beautiful cool clear water. However there are no lockers so lock your valuables In your car. Also bring a lunch there is nothing to buy. But for $5 us it is a great value and a beautiful jungle Cenote is a great place to keep cool. Bring a mask and... More

Great Cenote - it is at the surface and not in a cave- but it's cool clear waters is worth the 50 pesos. Fun for the whole family for about 3 or 4 hours - bad part - no food or drinks.
