The cenotes of the Yucatán are spectacular. The Gran Cenote is a beautiful glimpse of the fresh water underworld of the Maya culture. Amazing power captivated all of us.

Go early and beat the crowds. Snorkel to see the fish, turtles and stalagmites. Laugh at the instamodels posing while they admonish their boyfriends for not being professional photographers.

Great cenote to visit via a taxi or bike from Tulum. Yes, it gets crowded. Great cenote in the morning or during a partially rainy day. Just need to spend a few hours there. Nice mix of atmosphere with partially open and partially closed cave...More

I am not giving 5 stars only because they should improve the flooring down the cenote. It gets very slippery when there are too many people

This is a great place to cool off after climbing the Coba pyramid. The water is crystal clear. It is a wonderful experience. Wooden stairs take you down into the cavern where you can swim in the cool water out of the sun. Bathrooms and...More

It was quite crowded and a bit smaller than it seems. I expected them to have a card machine since it is the most popular cenote in this area but they didn’t, that was disappointing because we couldn’t get a locker or snorkeling equipment. Also,...More
