Cenotes Dos Ojos
Cenotes Dos Ojos
4.5
About
A pair of connected underwater caves that are part of the Sac Actun cave system, Cenotes Dos Ojos is a popular spot for diving and snorkeling. Sunlight seeping in from the crater above reveals impressive rock formations and makes it easy to see the diverse marine life, including colorful fish and sea turtles. Swimming is also enjoyable in the cenotes, great for younger children, with life jackets available for hire. For the best experience, opt for a guided tour that starts earlier in the day before the crowds arrive and takes you into the deeper parts of the cavern. – Tripadvisor

    A must dive cenote in Tulum
    A very cool cenote for diving. We have done the batcave line which was very cool with a bat cave half way where you come up for air in an internal cave full of bats. Not a deep dive but it is dark with not much life. Fantastic structures that with the light come to life, bring the camera or go pro because it is worth it. It is relatively shallow, most times you're hovering a meter above the sand and silt so watch the buoyancy so that you don't stir up the silt. Although it looks a bit scary, you feel like you are in the cave system with no easy way out (either forward or backwards), it actually offers quite a few side exits so it is very safe. It is one of the must cenotes to dive in Tulum.

    Cenote Fun
    We drove to the entrance and got tickets at the gate. They were very helpful in navigating us through purchase options. Quite a hike if you don’t drive from gate. Did 3 cenotes in on afternoon… some of my favorites Jaguar had a fun zip line and jumping platform, Dos Ojos was beautiful snorkeling and Nicte-Ha had really cool little turtles to swim with 🐢❤️💕 Bring Pesos always the easiest.

    Super moment under the water!
    Went there to dive, was perfect. Great for Open Water Diver (you stay between 3 and 10 meter max.). The tour is well marked ; you can’t be lost. Clearly something to see If you are around I advise you to try it out! Enjoy.

    A bucket list experience worth every penny
    If I could give this place 6 stars I would. A bucket list experience worth every single peso. We were a group of 5, 3 adults and 2 kids and a mix of Spanish and English speakers. Our bilingual guide, Johnny (Bravo) was amazing!! One of the children was scared of the cave and Johnny set her up as his “co-pilot” with a life preserver that he did not let go of while the adults were exploring the cave. And the cave, whoa! The bats are so cute!!! The water is refreshing bordering on chilly and they offer wetsuits for thems that want ‘em. Johnny’s sense of humor had us cracking up, and he was great about warning us to watch our knees sand heads at tricky parts. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

We visited some 7, 8 cenotes on our 2 week Yucatan tour. This one (in fact two) was high on our list. First day we came too late and weren't let in (last admittance is at 3.30 PM), so we came back tomorrow.
Admittance fee is pretty high (350 Ps, 18 $ pp) making it the most expensive one we visited (some are only 30 Ps - 1,5 $). And beware, that's only the basic admittance including nothing but mandatory life vests. All tours are extra.
Dos Ojos means two eyes, referring to two beautiful cenotes one by another. Both are semi open cenotes and here the beauty is under water.
After visiting several cenotes you get pretty much used to them - the ceiling is always spectacular with stalactites and plants hanging from it. The difference is in the water, in fact what you see in it.
In many cenotes the water is murky or too deep you don't see anything under, so you enjoy only the scenery above you.
In Dos Ojos the water is crystal clear and the scenery beneath is spectacular, specially in Cenote Nr. 2. I spent over an hour in it thinking I'm in a Nat. Geographic documentary. Cenote 1 is also nice, but the 2 is far better.
Water temp is nice, it chills you when you enter, but after few min you're fine.
Coming here without your snorkeling gear is a total waste of time and money.

Definitely recommend! We decided to pay for a tour guide, and are very happy we did so. Typically it's about $25/person to just walk in, but for $37/person we got snorkeling gear, flippers, and a tour guide with a camera. We paid him $20 more for unlimited photos for 2 people.

We had a great time. We told Luis, our guide, that we are good swimmers, so he managed to show us something extra that you wouldn't find without a guide.

Overall great time! Expect to spend about 2 hours here, and bring your own towels.

We visited on our own to swim and snorkel, (not part of a tour). We paid $112 USD for 6 people and snorkel gear would have been more money on top of that.

I'm glad we didn't rent the snorkel gear because there really wasn't much to see under the water.

The place seemed to really cater to cave divers (there were a lot of them there) but for just a swim or snorkel there are many better options.

Seemed to be cash only at the gate and the shop charged a 5% surcharge to use a credit card. Nice t-shirts though.

We also ran into quite a few very aggressive mosquitoes.

We really enjoyed Dos Ojos. There are two sections and the first is smaller than the second. The second is much larger but darker. Bring a mini flashlight to explore.

One thing to note. When you arrive you will have to speak with a salesperson who will tell you the cost. He told us for 350 pesos per person we could see the first cenote. The second cenote would coste an additional 350 pesos per person and that would come with a personal guide. If we did not pay the extra 350 we could not go to the second cenote. This was not true. You are able to go to the second cenote for no additional cost.

Be cautious unless you want a guided tour.

I have been diving and snorkeling the Cenotes for many years. Always wanted to try Dos Ojos and drove the family 2 hours (each way) to give it a shot. What was supposed to be the highlight of my trip turned out to be the worst part by far! After paying the far above normal fee, and heading to the water, I was told that I MUST wear a life vest!? Don't get me wrong, glad they provide them for people who choose to wear them. But, I personally have no interest whatsoever in snorkeling with a life vest or being a patron of any establishment that would REQUIRE me to. I immediately told them I no longer desire to utilize any part of their establishment and would need a full refund. It took nearly 30 minutes of haggling and an escalation before they finally returned my money! If you are looking for fun and adventure, stay far away from this place! If you want the Disney experience on some guided tour, I didn't even see the water, so I can't help you. I know many people appreciate wearing safety devices and I am happy they do. But it makes me sick to see this compulsory extreme safetyism that is spreading like a cancer through the world! Please do not support this trend or any business that takes part in it!

We had an awesome experience at Dos Ojos. This was a first time visiting a Cenote with my wife and two kids ages 11 and 10 and we were not disappointed. A few tips to make your experience more enjoyable. The cost to enter the Cenote is 350 pesos plus an additional 180-200 pesos to rent snorkeling gear (mask, snorkel and fins) so total of 550 pesos for entrance and snorkeling gear. We ended up paying 700 pesos per person for the guided tour we figured for an extra 150 pesos more its worth it and it definitely was. This is one of the largest and most popular Cenotes in the area and there are certain parts you cannot go into without a guide. Make sure you get the early as it starts to get busier later in the day.

I have no words to describe how amazing this place is. I loved our guide, he did a good job explaining everything to us and he made sure our experience was great, he took pictures for us and he gave us all the time we wanted. If you only have time for one cenote near Tulum, this is it.
Our only bad experience is that we feel they charged us more than the regular price, the bracelets clearly said $350 pesos for guided tour and they charged us $600 pesos, almost twice as much.
It is still not badly proce, but, did they cheat us? The prices are not posted anywhere else.

These Cenotes were worth the hype and very close to Tulum. There are also multiple cenotes to visit which gives you more bang for your buck. These cenotes are cave like and covered from the sun but not
Scary like some I saw.

This is a great location to experience a cenote with friends and family.

It does get busy, so plan to be there early. Entrance price is between $10-15, but it’s well worth it.

The areas surrounding the cenote safe also beautiful!

While visiting Cenote Dos Ojos I misplaced my wallet and the staff where extremely concerned and provided me with their help & support in locating my wallet specially the place's manager Andres & the security manager,they were friendly courteous and showed great concern for my situation and helped me until I located my wallet, this made feel reassured about the level of concern and honesty of all staff members.
Cenote Dos Ojos is a truly beautiful place that has to be experienced to truly appreciate it's natural beauty and the friendly staff make your visit a memorable experience.
I highly recommend taking the tours on offer not just the entry to the park and don't get put off by the approach of their staff members, all they want is for you to have a truly wonderful experience.
