Deep and huge, this cenote opens up as you descend like and inverted ice cream cone easily reaching 130 feet. However, the most amazing thing here is the beam of light coming form the small entrance, simply breathtaking!

My husband and I had the most amazing experience at this quiet "non tourist trap" cenote. Our guide, Luis, was extremely knowledgeable, and since October is considered "off season" we had a private tour. Almost all of the cenote is in caves and the water...More

The cenote here is beautiful, the water was so clear and the formations were incredible. There wasn't too much to see under the water, but it was still beautiful nonetheless.

One of the coolest experiences. Our tour guide, Antonio, was so funny and informative. Swimming in the caves was surreal. This location is worth the drive.

Sorry, I just found this Q. 450 pesos or $30 USD. I think it’s cash only.They charge extra for a wet suit but I didn’t get one. Obviously paying with pesos saves you money.
