First experience with cenotes, a positive experience. There is a resting area like a beach area, several hammocks, and seats. The cost is 180 pesos. We saw turtles and fishes. The place is a bit small, so the entire place is done by 1 hour.

The best cenote, in my opinion ! Although it was a bit crowded, it’s still amazing. Blue water, nice turtles, fair price and places to relax.

nice place to be. Enjoyed the swim. Cool waters. A rope to hold on to if you're tired. One hour was not enough.

We had a wonderful time swimming in the larger area around the main dock. You can rent snorkels and lockers. You can swim through a cave to another area with soft sand. There are ropes to help you stay up if you need a break.

Gorgeous place but the staff really sucked. Mean and bossy staff kind of destroyed the mood for us...

We were lucky to come on a quieter day. There are 2 parts where you can enter the cenote and we spent most our time at the 2nd entrance as there were only a couple of people swimming there. You pay US$10 entrance and need...More

No tripods allowed because they say it's "professional". I take photos as a hobbie and was so annoyed when the staff snatched my tripod away and walked off. Extremely rude and unacceptable behaviour. There's no signs indicating this stupid rule.

This cenote is beautiful and the water is clear. It is a well organised with steps, decking and clear signage. The caves are fascinating, with lots of different areas to swim through. The grounds are very basic but there is a sunbathing area and we...More

Great place to see and then just chill in sun, cheaper to go by yourself on a bike or taxis, only 180 pesos entrance fee, and they only accept cash! No card!

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!

We paid with local currency (pesos). But a lot of places accepted credit cards.
