    Very pretty Cenote, the underwater garden
    Visited this Ceote to see another Cenote dive experience an an open water diver following casa Cenote and Dos Ohos Batcave line. This was very pretty, known as the underwater garden it had some lovely light and vegetation. To be dived slowly to enjoy the experience. Unlike the other cenotes there were o Ly 2 other divers in here as I feel it is a less wow factor but very much enjoyed non the less. Toilets and shower facilities as per other. Emotes available and we’ll kept

    Best cenote in the area
    Best Cenote in the area. Not as popular but should be so th the amount of fish and aquatic plants. It’s feels like an underwater paradise or Something from avatar. Definitely bring snorkelling gear as it’s incredible. Only issue is if you get a tour bus of loud unruly tourist and guides which spoil it for you

    A real life Garden of Eden
    A real Garden of Eden. Just took our breath away. Simply beautiful. Photos cannot justify this cenote and there is wildlife all around. Masks may be purchased if you’ve forgotten yours and life jackets are provided.

About 25-30 minutes north of Tulum. Also great in safety. Our temperature was taken. About $11 per person. Or $200. Mexican. Always better to carry local currency.

This Cenote was natural clean and so beautiful and enjoyable.

We had a blast here. As fewer people come here than others, Truly a hidden gem.

Go to this one and enjoy.

My first cenote experience. Absolutely beautiful as if it's man made. The water was kinda cold even in summer but you get used to it as soon as you jump in.Quiet and peaceful, not too many people around. The only downside that it is just a little small.

Great place to jump in after a visit to Tulum. Cold at first but worth swimming with the fish. A hidden gem cause less people are there. Was part of our tour. Good visit

Like other people have mentioned, we had sticker shock at the cost for 4 people to visit Dos Ojos. The cashier suggested Nicte-Ha instead, which is only MX$100 per person. It was exactly what you envision a secluded lush cenote to be! Since most people come to just take selfies and don't even get in the water, you pretty much have the cenote to yourself if you're swimming. Seriously, women come with full make up and hair done just to take a selfie and then leave.
Definitely bring snorkel gear to view the fish. People came to scuba, as well. Free life vests are provided.

Loved this Cenote! This was recommended while visiting Cenote Sac Actun. This was one of my favorite cenote’s. The water is clear blue and it was nice to have the sun shining on the water. This was the best Cenote to snorkel in to see the fish and cave formations. This is not a well known Cenote which made my visit more personal.

We had researched this Cenote prior to visiting and it was better than expected except for the mosquitoes! We got there towards the late afternoon and it was very quiet! All the better! Water was cold when you step in but once you got in, it was perfect. So clear right to the bottom! Kids thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling here as well!

Nice smaller cenote that is well maintained. You will have to wear a life jacket. The jumping area is closed. The lily or lotus pads are gorgeous. The light beams at mid day are great for photography. Extra 50 pesos charge for a gopro. There is plenty of wildlife for a walk around the cenote. The birds are beautiful. More than ten people and it will feel crowded. Good for 1.5 to 2 hour visit.

It's a beautiful cenote, very picturesque with the water lilies and gorgeous surroundings.
If you are diving here note that it is a very shallow dive and not a long one either. Probably makes sense if you want to ease into cenote diving and it would be great to start, similar to Casa Cenote.
The water lilies from below give stunning background and great pictures can be taken with the sun shining. Worth going.
