40 reviews
Visit two of the most important Maya archaeological sites on this full-day tour: Coba and Tulum. Admire the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea while exploring the temples and pyramids of Tulum with a certified guide, then head to Coba to climb to the top of Nohoch Muul—the tallest pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula. In the afternoon, take a swim in a 'cenote' (underground cave), sit down for a traditional Mexican lunch, and explore the city of Playa del Carmen. Round-trip transport is included.

What an extremely unique cenote. Calavera is skull in Spanish. The cenote has 3 openings, 2 eyes and the mouth, resembling a skull. People can jump in the hole, but I could not bring myself to do it. The ladder is tricky when entering the bigger hole. The rungs are placed pretty far from each other. I recommend placing your foot long ways on the rung of the ladder and securing yourself by leaning with your shin into the ladder as you descend. Just take it slowly. Generally, people are nice. A lady was on the swing and I asked her politely if I could just take a few photos on it and then she could have it back. She obliged. There was a local on the property that took photos for us. We tipped him for photo taking. They were all very nice and friendly. I totally recommend going before 11:00 a.m. It gets super crowded and folks like to jump over you. Literally, jump over you.

This place is like a hidden gem and it was cool! The fee is $17 US to get in just beware they do charge you if you bring your go pro camera so just bring your phone to take pics or videos!

Definitely a fun cenote! There are 3 holes to jump from and it's only about 12 ft above the water. There are small fish swimming and if you bring a snorkel mask or goggles, the sunlight casts incredible patterns underwater through the holes. There are many bats in the cenote as well (swim on your back for an interesting view!) It might help to wear water shoes here.

Must go!! We woke up at the crack of dawn to be the first 5 at the denote. Greater by the owners who were extremely lovely. There was a German woman who was filming some sort of video so it was quite entertaining yelling out Spanish words here and there! It was stunning! Remember this is a cave with still water! My fiancé jumps in and I dive in after. Ofc things don’t go as planned and I ended up taking a chunk of skin out of my knee. All my fault. The man came and rushed to my aide he was so concerned and helpful. Poor man kept saying sorry we had to reassure him that it was my fault it’s okay. This happens probably to one out of 20 people. So it’s okay. My hubby jumped back in took some crazy shots. Then we rushed to the hotel to get it cleaned. But besides that we had a blast. There’s so much to see at this cenote! Don’t forget swim with caution and come prepared with mosquito repellant!

Cenote Calavera came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. It was beautiful! We were scared to jump in at first as it didn’t look as easy as it does on IG. It’s 7 meters deep. There were bats in the cave and lots of bugs. You can’t wear any bug spray or sun block so be prepared. They make you shower prior to getting in. The swing was so hard to get on. Lol! But with help from other tourist, I was able to get on it. Fun times!!
