What a hidden gem!!!! We should have gotten directions before leaving Cancun--- took us several hours to locate this magical place - well worth the trip!! It was so nice for an attraction not to be commercialized. The water was breathtaking and very cold ---refreshing!!! Words really can't describe it!!! After our swim--- we had good cold beer and chicken... More

If you get sick of the crowds at the more popular tourist destinations then stop by this great little place. The place is run by the local community and it has a fabulous restaurant and nice changing facilities and bathrooms. Life jackets are available for everyone and there is a simple little swimming platform at the bottom of some steps... More

Quiet, beautiful setting. This cenote is nice as it's off the beaten track and has significantly fewer people. An option to jump off a high ledge. Life jackets included in price.

I've seen four Cenotes and this is the nicest open one I've seen. Coolingl off in this less touristy, all natural and quiet one allows you to feel like the ancient Maya did. Turquoise and black birds sit in the trees as swallows zoomed around and I never wanted to leave. Something every nature lover would adore.

We had a great day touring Chichen Itza and the Cenote Yokdzonot with Alex Aranda of Destino Merida Tours. Lunch and swimming in this beautiful cenote exceeded all our expectations. This less crowded location was a peaceful way to relax, enjoy a great lunch, and cool off after spending the morning at Chichen Itza. Tucked away off the beaten path... More

This came as a welcome surprise. The cenote and restaurant beside it are very well worth the trip. The cenote is huge circular space with dark waters. Life jackets - if required - are included in the price with is less than a €4. There is what appears to be a diving platform on the top of the cenote and... More

This is an out the way Cenote. We would never have found it on our own. A local suggested it as an alternative to the cenotes that the tour buses go to. It was a 20 minute drive from Chichen Itza. It costs 70 pesos per person. They only take cash and reluctantly accept dollars. The price includes a life... More

Visited with MexiGo Tours. Run by native Maya it is well planted and maintained. We had Poc Chuc for lunch in their thatch roof restaurant and it was great. It is a credit to the local Maya people that they have made a success of this project. Please visit the Cenote to help support the local community. Highly recommended

this is one of those wonderful places that is just now beginning to come to people's attention. if you want my advice, drive the extra 12 minutes (timed it today) past Chichen Itza and have yourself a wonderful cenote experience with (usually) very few others. it was the most crowded i have ever seen it today with 5 others there...

And I mean hidden. When you are driving through the town of Yokdzonot, you have to take a turn at the town square by the municiple building and drive a 1/2 mile. No road signs guide the way, though there is a billboard in the general area. The staff had about as much English as we did Spanish (very little)... More
