It's a nice Cenote, but I've seen more beautiful Cenotes in Mexico, so if you have time- it's recommended to rent a car and visit some other cenotes. Don't forget to take a towel with you!

Of all the cenotes we've been to, we were a bit disappointed by this one. The water wasnt clear, it's more like a small lake... we were all ready with our swim gear and towels and when we arrived we werent that impressed so we...More

The water has a quality that is somehow unique. The temperature is about the same as the body temperature and it feels silky soft. It’s 90 metres deep. Find the spot where the tree branches go into the water so you have a nice place...More

Most this be the place you visit first when you get to the region? Possibly not. As one of the largest cenotes in the region, it is tempting to fall for the great urge to go an visit. I would suggest take a walk down...More

Real relaxing area to swim. It is very secure and swimmers may get life vest. There are security ropes etc for visitors to hold unto. Lots of visitors come here. For a small fee you can enter to enjoy this beauty.

My favourite of Bacalar's cenotes. Crystal clear water, you can swim between, under and over the tree roots. It even has areas that are like your own private pool.

You pay 25 pesos entry which is fine but to be honest the lake swimming is nicer. The restuarant is overpriced but the food is o.k. They hire lifejackets here as there is no shallow area, it just plunges down to 90 metres deep so...More
