This was a fun little Cenote with well kept grounds. We found it fun to explore for a couple hours. Price was 150 pesos each so a bit high for what it is. It was very crowded the day we were there. Probably would pass next time.

The Gran Cenote is such a different experience than you would expect. Unfortunately, I do not know how to scuba so all I was able to do was snorkel. However, even snorkeling I saw some amazing formations and underwater caves I would have loved to see more of. There is a cave between 2 openings that has many bats. Don't... More

went to snorkeling and I had a fun time. The color of the water is magically beautiful. They have a pet peacock randomly strolling. Cool.

There is no denying that the grand cenote is amazing and beautiful. The blue waters, bats, turtles, and unique cave geology, makes this a truly awesome place to visit. Also helps that it's only a 5 to 10 minute drive from downtown tulum. Was 150 pesos per person to enter, and 30 pesos for a locker. They have changing rooms... More

Who knew I'd like to snorkel in a cenote!? I thought because there wasn't lots of fish or coral it wouldn't be interesting but I was wrong! We brought our own snorkel gear and it was so neat so see the under water architecture. . The corners just fade into an abyss, freaky!! There were 2 caves to swim in.... More

The Gran Cenote is a beautiful cenote that is very popular in the Tulum area. It is only two miles from Tulum. My daughter and I snorkeled here in January 2016. Beautiful area with crystal clear water. There is lockers, bathrooms life jackets snorkel masks and snorkels available. It was about 120 pesos to snorkel. (Fins not allowed.) There is... More

I absolutely loved this cenote (and I am not a fan of swimming in water other than a swimming pool). Beautifully preserved. Costs 150 pesos (worth every cent), you can also rent a locker for 30 pesos. Turtle food costs 10 pesos. They require you to shower before getting in. There is toilet and changing facilities as well as a... More
