Our son and I took a colectivo to Cenote Azul for the day and really loved it! There are very basic restrooms/changing facilities and a snack bar near the entrance where you pay the admission fee. A trail winds down through the trees to the cenote. The cenote is divided by a dock, and separates out into several areas where... More

We took a collectivo from our local hotel and it was only a short walk to the entrance. Its Inexpensive and there is a toilet and changing room, there is a short walk down to the cenotes. The waters are shallow but crystal clear and beautiful and there are a few nice spots. Its peaceful and relaxing to float round... More

This is one of the more closer cenotes from Playa Del Carman so the cost of travel and cost to enter and rent a snorkel and mask was about 155pesos, so less then $10usd you have a very beautiful and open cenote! And the kicker to this is the little fish or minnows whichever you may call them give foot... More

The cold water of this beautiful cenote is sweet and refreshing, especially on warm days! You can swim or dive in the clear, blue water or just have a seat and get a " fish therapy" from all the little fishes inside of the pool. If you like cliff diving you can find a spot too. The water isn't very... More

This was our favorite cenote. It was incredible with a lot of small fish. Various spots in the cenote. Very refreshing water. Beautiful lush surroundings. Great for small children and adults.

I have been to Mexico several times and visited several cenotes. This is my favorite. Ik Il near Chichen itza is the most beautiful and open area to swim but it requires hoofing it down and up more stairs than I like. The Dos Ojos cenote had a short tunnel it was mostly in a cave. This one has a... More

The cenote azul is a great place, the entrance is only 80 pesos. It is a open place with great views , really close to Tulum. You can jump from a rock. You should not wear sunscreen because is really bad for the environment. You can bring your own food, they don't have restaurant or cafeteria.
