Just beautiful

We were able to snorkel in this cenote and it was breathtaking! The water was crystal clear and the rocks were stunning. Well worth the visit.

We booked Viktor based on reviews here and on locogringo.com. His tour is interesting and professional. He's never at a loss for words or making it up as he goes. You can tell he's done this before and we loved it. We ended up being the only ones that day so we got a private tour - just us, Viktor... More

The cenote is amazing, the tour guide Victor is amazing, it's in a beautiful area, it can be a private tour etc. They have spare water shoes if you don't take your own. The only negative was the constant photographs by the photographer which they then try to sell you at the end.

Even if you do not visit this one you must go to visit a Cenote whilst in Mexico - a natural wonder and truly something to behold.

This was our second tour and so much different than the other ( which we love too) victor full of knowledge and very personable. A little more touristy than the other one we did but still off the beaten path and not crazy like the commercial ones. Amazing stalagtites and mites and crystal blue water. We did on a cool... More

We had an incredible experience with Viktor as our guide. I cannot recommend enough doing the private tour as it was such a beautiful and special experience to have the cenote to ourselves. The cenote is incredibly beautiful and unique although we have been diving and snorkelling in several other cenotes. Go ahead and buy the pictures from your tour... More

One off the best outing, the area have everything a place to change and you get to have lunch before you go in, lunch is light. Outside is hot, but when your inside it’s like you have walked in to a cooler, the water is cooled, but the view is amazing.

The Cenota was intimidating at first but once your in the cave, see that the bats don't care about you and how strikingly clear the water is all your worries go away. You will see catfish, lizards and bats. Take a water camera, water shoes and towel.
