The place is cool to see. A bit crowded. As a heads up, You have to shower before you get in the Cenote. They have showers and lockers there.

Good day trip. Close to the center of town. It does get a little crowded but it wasn't particularly off putting at all. There are lockers, bathrooms and snorkels for rent on the premises. Great way to chill, get a little sun and take a...More

Compared to many other cenotes this is over priced and overcrowded. Surprisingly small with few fish etc.

Gran Cenote near Tulum, was well worth the stop. You we allowed to stay and swim as long as you like. The fee was minimal, less than $20 per person. A must stop while in Tulum.

Absolutely beautiful. Decent amount of people there but it still felt like a very personal experience. The water was the perfect temperature and the most gorgeous shade of turquoise.

Unfortunately too busy and loud to enjoy. Least favourite Cenote in the area. No tranquility, maybe we visited at a really busy time, however the water seemed to be murky possibly due to sunscreens and too many people. I think they need to limit the...More

This was a must see in Tulum. If you can go with a guide who has an underwater flashlight or buy one for yourself. The world underwater at the back of the Cenote is unreal!

My least favourite Cenote in Tulum. Very crowded and prefer the less popular Cenotes with less people and more room to swim

Every time we went to a cenote, we thought, it cannot get better and every time we were wrong. This one was no different. Such a spectacular place. Definitely worth a visit.

This was the first cenote we went to and found it very crowded. The water was clear and formations pretty but cenote was small. Recommend Casa Tortuga.

We got there around 12 noon in peak season - and it wasn’t too crowded. Not sure about later - we stayed for an hour and had a great time. Enjoy😊👍

if you go to Grand Cenote, you should also hit Dos Ojos...get them both in...for snorkeling, it was only about 45 minutes at Grand Cenote

There's no food sold on site. However, it's not far from town so you can grab a taxi for cheap and try a few local spots!
