I'm told it's usually a great spot to have a snorkel, but we unfortunately visited Cenote Crystal after flooding, which meant the water was murky and you couldn't see anything underwater. However, there was a diving platform/wooden tower you could climb up and jump off which was awesome fun - but you can only do this for so long before... More

This open cenote is simple and easily accessible from Tulum town for a quick dip. The price we paid, I think, was 120 pesos per person so it was not expensive. The water is clear although there were floating chunks of algae around. Other members of my family who could see the bottom took their googles off since whatever goop... More

Much cheaper than Dos Ojos , about $5 ( always use Pesos, as it comes out a lot cheaper!! Very beautiful, and Azul is right next to it, but different, so you get to see 2 different Cenotes! Take a taxi, as it is always cheap , as you pay for the car , not by person, and they usually... More

Wasn't anyone here, didn't stay long. Was my second cenote at the time so I thought it was neat but it wasn't anything too amazing

This is very refreshing cool Cenote that is inexpensive and easy to swim. I recommend this Cenote for those staying in Tulum that want to cool off and see a basic Cenote.

Our family of four biked here from Tulum. dont go in the afternoon because they close at 3 or 4 and you will want to hang there for a while. It is connected to another cenote across the road so you kind of get a two for one. I would bring a picnic. there are places to camp i recall

Cenote Cristal is a quaint, local spot just a few minutes from Tulum. For $120 pesos or $7 US you get access to Cenote Cristal as well as Cenote Escondido across the street. We didn't realize that until it was too late. Never got to Escondido. We enjoyed Cenote Cristal. It's small, quiet and a number of locals were there... More

Such pretty surroundings, and not far South of Tulum, but the water is quite full of algae. The kids had so much fun jumping off a high platform, and because cost is low it is a local spot and more authentic. Wanted to get to escondido across the street but ran out of time. Would still recommend a visit especially... More

Stayed here for a couple hours, lounging and swimming. Definitely relaxing and clean! There is a place where you can jump from a high tower, which was exciting.
