This is magical place that is breathtaking! You access the denote through a series of steps leading you down about 50ft under the ground. This then opens to a cathedral like space with the cenote about another 50ft below you. You can hire a locker for 7 pesos and swim in the very cool water. Their are cat fish in... More

We swam in the two cenotes at Dzitnup on our last day in Mexico. They are both amazing, although pretty similar. We swam in 8 cenotes in our time in Mexico, and these were probably the most impressive. They are both in caves, and the water is very clean. We went early in the morning, and in one of them...

The cenotes of Dzitnup and Samula are part of the same 'experience'. You pay an entry fee to visit both cenotes. If you've never been into a cenote inside a cave the first impression is 'wow' - and yes it is beautiful: a fresh water reservoir, underground and in the 'roof' of the cave the sunlight comes in through a...

There are two cenotes at this location and you need a ticket for each. We were happy with the value, but we arrived around 11 am before most of the tourists arrived in the afternoon. I recommend coming when it is mostly empty -- the more people that are at a cenote really ruin the experience. Cenote Samula: This cenote... More

It was a magical experience for me! :) While there were no fish to see (wore my mask and snorkel and tried very hard to locate one of any size!), it was a new experience for me to swim in a cenote! My only complaint was that I wish it had been longer. I had thought that given we went... More

First of all our son of 9 got charged as an adult. The guide, which is tip based, was very not enthusiastic, the place had a dirty feel to it, you have to walk through quite a lot of tourist shops before getting to the cenote. The water was very murky with too many people swimming in it. All in... More

If you have never visited a cenote, it is a must see. The water supply for Mexico is located underground in these water caves for lack of a better term. This particular one has a hole in the ceiling so as to allow light from the outside to shine through which makes for an amazing effect. You are also allowed... More

Cenotes Xkeken and Samula are across the road from one another. Since Cenote Samula does not have it's own page on Trip Advisor, I have left my review here. My review of Xkeken Cenote is located on it's separate TA page. The cenote itself is beautiful and is completely underground with a small opening in the rock ceiling where the... More

Be there in the afternoon at 2pm -> Then you'll see the sunlight through the ceiling -> that's so nice... they are building the entrance new so no signs - you have to ask when you walk to the cenote. But that's ok.

This cenote is good for a quick dip, but I can't say that the trek through the aggressive vendors in the entry way is worth it, and I'm fairly accustomed to this stuff after living down here the past two years... Anyway, the water is nice and cool with reasonable visibility, it's more green than the crystal blue color shown... More
