We took a collectivo from Akumal which dropped us off on the highway just outside. Just a very short walk and we were there! Bring goggles or snorkel as the water is very clear! There is also a rock to jump off. Great for everyone.

This spring is right off of the main highway so it's an easy stop if you're driving to Talum. There is an area for cliff diving as well as swimming. The water is crystal clear and is about 70 degrees year round.

We took the colectivo from Playa for 35 pesos per person. I think the entrance fee was 80 pesos each. We brought our own snorkel gear. The snorkeling was really good for a cenote and there were many different types of fish. There were also a couple of places to jump off of cliffs to get into the water. We... More

Amazing beautiful place to visit. Very cheap ($2) at door and close to the highway. You and your family and friends can spend hours there swimming and enjoying this cenote.

We visited the cenote on a cruise ship tour with Cancun Adventures. I am always looking for something that cannot be found at other destinations. The clear, deep, fresh water and underground cave system were definitely something that I had never seen before and well worth the visit.

Cenote Azul is a pretty little place with free foot massages by the fishes there, but DO NOT leave your things unattended at any time. ALWAYS, i mean ALWAYS have your belongings on you or your eyes on them. I left my bag behind me and my family, and within 5 minutes, my bag was switched by the thief with... More

This Cenote is within walking distance from Barcelo Hotel and definitely worth a visit. Great deal if you pay in Pesos. We stayed for about 90 mins or so. If you walk there, be super careful when crossing the street.

Low entrance fee, snorkel equipment can be rented here too. Beautiful setting, not busy at all. We stayed for 3 hours or so. We took at taxi here, then asked the employee to call one for us when we were ready- much easier than one of the guided tours. Lots of fish to see (bring a mask) and lots of... More

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
