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

This comprises two really beautiful cenotes within well kept gardens. The cenotes, Xkeken and Samula get separate reviews. Xkeken is really beautiful, but we spent more time in Samula. In between, the gardens are brilliant. Lots of seating. Plenty of birds and butterflies. I rambled off several times and there interesting tracks all around. Note on taxis. We got a... More

There are actually 2 cenotes here, both within a 3 minute walk from reception. 59 pesos to enter either one, it's a great stop-off point for an afternoon (or morning) swim. The cenote that we visited was pretty cool - it's dark down there and you can see a huge tree root growing down into the cenote from the ground... More

Makes pretty pictures. But when we got there, a few visitors were frolicking in the water loudly, making the place less impressive.
