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

Nice, delicious cool swim, but felt a hustled between the paid parking, the "voluntary" guide and kefuffle over whether we had paid for tickets. Blind black cave fish slightly disconcerting. First place that gave me tourist fatigue.

There were just a few people when we arrived, close to closing time, and that was perfect. Special feel, lots of atmosphere...

We arrived later in the afternoon to check out the cenote when the crowds of people were gone. It was nice as there was maybe 15 people total there. Very warm and and refreshing water. Lots of booths selling tourist novelties of course. Overall nice Cenote.

This is a magical place, and certainly the most impressive cenote we've ever seen. Also known as Xkeken, so there is no confusion as to which cenote I am writing about. Crystal clear blue water inside a marvelous cavern, underground, and lit with sun from above through a hole in the top. Practicals - Just a few km from Valladolid.... More

This is a well located cenote between Chichen Itza, Ek Balam and Valladolid. There are two and we went into the one with the dead tree with the roots hanging over the opening. Surprisingly, it was not overly crowded in early afternoon. Had a pleasant short 30 min swim and took a few pictures. I visited as part of a... More
