This cenote is incredibly beautiful. We jumped off a small cliff into the refreshingly cold water below. We went early in the morning and had the place to ourselves for about 30 minutes until a photographer arrived with a bride and groom for a photo shoot.

Very popular with the locals - my husband and I visited on a Tuesday mid-afternoon and it was pretty full of people. Bring snorkel and mask (don't bring fins). There is also a jump off location here about 15 feet up. Very popular. The water was beautiful, but parts of it was like swimming in an aquarium because of the... More

Cenote Azul is a great place to visit and do some snorkeling. Like other reviewers said, the water is crystal clear and you get to see various tropical fish. Anyway, here is a quick direction on how to get there. We were staying at the Grand Palladium resort, so we walked outside the resort and caught a collectivo that was... More

Our favorite cenote (we went to 5). The kids enjoyed jumping from the cliff. Water is very nice. It´s raining but still beautiful and clean. We loved it and went twice. It´s not expensive when compared to 2 ojos or Gran cenote, but we liked much more. Especially the kids - they loved it.

Hi, This is one of most beautiful Cenote I ever visited and it is a little bit different from the others because you can find a lot of fish and also there is an spot where you can jump into the Cenote. Waters are crystal clear and overall not too much depth so kids will enjoy a lot. Admission fee... More

This Cenote is beautiful and very easy to access also is not a park that will charge you lots of money. The entrance is like 5 dollars, bring it in pesos, is like 80 pesos. Go really early cause it gets ridiculously crowded. We had a rental car and made it there from Playa Del Carmen in 15 mins. Type... More

Very nice Cenote. Place was packed on a Saturday with lots of local so I'm sure it's much better when more room to swim and relax but even then it was great experience. The place is very nice, clean water, very natural and genuine area. We were told to better go early in the morning next time to enjoy a... More

The entrance fee is $5, There are life vests to rent if wanted, the area is very clean and well-maintained. It is very natural with the lovely pale blue, clear water and natural slabs of limestone along the bank which make access into deeper water easy. It is not slimey or draped with creepy vines and such. There are numerous... More
