If you go to visit the Uxmal ruins and you need some refreshment, then go X Batun and enjoy it! It is an open type cenote. It is quite nice but we were unlucky and met a big group of noisy people so we couldn't...More

It’s pretty but not much space to swim. It might be dry season so the water is low, but very limited swimming area. There’s a sectioned off area for aquatic plants, which is good because those filter and clean a body of water, however there...More

This was a great find, even as it was quite difficult to find! The cenote was fairly large, with cool crystalline waters that provided a wonderful break from the nearly 90-degree temperatures of the day. It's fairly easy of access--a short dirt path leads from...More

It is certainly worth the trip from Mérida to visit these (and other cenotes). But the photo here is NOT X Batun, it is 800 meters away and called Cenote Dzonbakal. Dzonbakal is really great, a cave open to the sky with sparkling water and...More

According to our guide, there are about 8,000 – 10,000 in Quintana Roo, Yucatan and Campeche area. The grand cenote is in Tulum. This is a tiny cenote and a nice quick stop between Merida and Celestun. It is in a town called Peba. Admission...More

Swimming in an unspoiled nature beauty like this cenote is a one of a kind experience. Calm, clean, just wonderful experience.

This was our first visit to a cenote, and after visiting Uxmal earlier in the day, this completed our favorite day of our whole trip--both very cool experiences! This was a beautiful cenote, not very crowded at all. If possible, come wearing your bathing suit....More
