I would advise anyone considering this trip to reconsider, terrible experience all in all, I went with a group of folk I was travelling with, We had visited a few cenote's on our travels and may have been expecting more but honestly they couldn't of been any worse and into the bargain we got over charged and not fully refunded!...

A local recommended Cenote Escondido to us. We biked to it (about 20 minutes from downtown Tulum) and had to buy passes across the street for 120 pesos, as others have mentioned. We also biked down the dirt road to the Cenote, and we were the only ones there. It was gorgeous, and tons of fish swam around us as... More

When you buy a ticket at the entrance you pay for Cenote Crystal and Escondido (you need to ask someone to open the gate for you as it is on the other side of the street). We went to Escondido first and liked it a lot. It is in the middle of the jungle, the water is very clear and... More

On the advice of some other travelers, we went to cenote escondido. It was beautiful. The water was crystal clear and it had a nice little cliff that my daughter enjoyed jumping from. We really enjoyed our afternoon there. We went on a Monday and it wasn't too crowded which made it even better.

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
