We Explored Dos Ojos on a Friday morning, just after the park opened at 8:30. We were expecting to pay 17/pp but ended up paying 22/pp US. It was well worth it. The ticket entrance was just off the highway and well marked. Once we purchased, we drove down a long road past several other small cenotes we had not heard of (extra cost that we did not opt for). There were three cenotes you could go in, the 1st eye was beautiful, sandy bottom with crystal blue water. Lots of little fish, bats and birds. The second eye was also beautiful in color but was a lot deeper. We brought snorkel masks and you could see several caves underneath us and stalagmites stretched from the ceiling into the water. There were several people diving from the first eye to the second. The other cenote was the bat cave. Which we didn’t stay in long, but still beautiful. We were fortunate to arrive before any tour groups and were often the only ones at the cenote, I’d really recommend getting there early if you can.

The grounds were beautiful and well cared for. There were toilets and outdoor showers (which had to be used before going in the cenote to rinse all suntan lotion off). The area is well shaded, so this was not a concern. There was also a small restaurant/bar next to the parking area.

This was a truly unique experience and the highlight of our trip. Definitely a must do!

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.

Drive past all the vendors trying to get you to sign up for a guide. It's not necessary. Drive down the road until you reach the cenote entrance. Parking is free, there is an entrance fee. In June 2022 we paid $70 for our family (2 adults, 2 kids). Bring your own or rent the snorkel and mask and bring an underwater flashlight. The entrance fee gives you access to the Eye 1 and Eye 2 cenotes. Totally worth the price of admission.

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.

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.

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 dived here as the third and final dive of the day. It was the least impressive of the 3 we did (the others were the Pit and Casa Cenote), that's not to say it wasn't good, just that it wasn't amazing.
I dont know the entrance fee for this Cenote since it was all included in the dive package but I can well believe what other reviewers are saying: expensive.
I'm glad I dived here but I would have been very disappointed to swim; the waters were indeed an unreal blue (I know some people have said that's fake so maybe we got there on a good day) but if you swim there's really not much to see or do. There's very little wildlife in the water so unless you're after Instagram shots if you posing next to or in blue water you might as well skip this.
Diving though is a different story, from under the water you get to appreciate the blue in a whole different way, whatsmore you get to explore the caves and tunnels which just wouldn't be possible for swimmers.
While some of the sections of the route are a little mundane there are sections of astonishing beauty. The views back up towards the light are still the main highlight for me but others were the rooms of stalactites and tunnels of complete darkness. The bones were possibly the most underwhelming thing I've seen on a dive though...
Most divers choose to do the Bat Cave but we decided on a longer dive through the Barbie Line (we managed about 50 mins with 100bar left)
There are some sections where the ceiling is a bit low, or it just gets a little cramped so being confident with your bouyency is something to consider (we did see a diver who couldn't get herself off the ceiling - so if you're a newby maybe don't put yourself or the caves in danger by diving this Cenote).

This was a great way to spend the afternoon. We went later in the day and found it less busy. We visited 4 different cenotes while in Tulum and this was our second most favourite. Easy to get to, you can swim, and snorkel but not really a lot of fish to see snorkeling. You can also go diving but will require a guide. $350 pesos for the basic package and that lets you swim in the two Cenote’s if you choose. There were lots of mosquitoes but you had to be cautious using repellent, we found a natural one they would let us use. Great way to spend part of a day. I would recommend going early in the day or later afternoon to avoid the crowds.

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.

The best cenote we visited in Tulum. The only thing we didn’t like is they require you to wear a life jacket the entire time in the water. For those of us that we frequent snorkelers it really was not necessary. The second cenote here is so much fun it goes around in a circle and is super super deep and beautiful to look at. Don’t miss this cenote!
