All-Inclusive Chichen Itza, Valladolid with Cenote Swim & Mexican Buffet

993 reviews
Chichen Itza is an ancient Maya city in Mexico that was abandoned in the 15th century. Now a UNESCO World Heritage-listed archaeological park, its intact temples, and famous stepped pyramids may be explored during this comprehensive guided tour, which tops off fun-filled history lessons with a visit to the colonial town of Valladolid and a swim in a sacred limestone waterhole. A savory buffet lunch is also included.

Truly a beautiful place to visit. It was just such an amazing experience to see the cenote from above and then descend down to the water level and such a pretty sight. The water is freezing cold so a little shock to the system but definitely worth doing.

Very well organised with a lot of changing rooms. The water is very very cold as the cenote is very deep. Fortunately there are ropes put on the water surface so if someone is in trouble they can hold onto that. There are long queues for people who want to jump in. The cenote looks great as it's nice round shape and very deep, plus there are a lot of roots hanging down which make nice curtain around it.

It is absolutely amazing. Out of the cenote I’ve seen, possibly the most spectacular because of the cavern above it. Make sure to bring towel and swimwear. An absolute must do, even for someone like me who can’t swim

We had seen so many cenotes but this one really took the cake! It was 80 pesos which was 20 less than most others. More importantly they have clean changing areas and make it easy to go in the water. You can even leap in from a couple of slightly high spots. There’s long vines draping down from the top that make it quite mysterious. It’s huge so many people can swim at the same time. Be aware that the water is quite cold. 73-75 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s COLD for swimming! Have fun swimming or just watching. Howard S.

This is the first cenote we have seen. Of course, it is conveniently located, but it really deserves its popularity.
