I liked both cenotes but I preferred Escondido as the water was clearer and you could see lots of fish. The waters in both cenotes are cool, there's a rope swing in Escondido and a very high platform to dive off at crystal. These cenotes...More

I liked the cenote, inside I saw 2 turtles and many fishes. Across the road there is a second cent. You can buy an entrance ticket for both of them. The water was ok but in some areas full of algees.

The water in the cenote is refreshing but it has a lot of algae. The lady at the ticket booth was very rude and had such a bad attitude. The restroom were disgusting and don’t appear to be cleaned regularly. There are much more nicer...More

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived here two weeks ago. It’s one of the less busy centotes. It’s like a huge pond in the middle of the jungle with a platform to dive from. The water is fairy deep here so it’s not a...More

Cenote was very easy to access from Tulum Pueblo. Well maintained grounds and nice jumping tower. Abundance of wildlife in and out of the water.
