We went here after the Coba ruins. It was $10 usd to enter and you can bring your own snorkel gear or rent them there. We brought our own after reading reviews to save money. We got here around 1 o clock and it was...More

The cenote is quite vast & has a lot of hidden nooks throughout the cave system. Be mindful of the bats, they're brave & at times low flying. The cenote is very large but crowded. I'd recommend getting a life jacket (even if you are...More

This is the coolest Cenote that we've been to. The water was so clear and under the water was beautiful. DEFINITELY BRING YOUR OWN SNORKEL GEAR OR RENT THEM. Price was reasonable. I would plan on spending about 2 hrs here...

This place can get a bit crowded but still well worth it. Lots of hammocks and a nice garden to stretch out and rest. But the cenote is the most beautiful we went to. Bring your snorkel gear and save yourself a few bucks.

My wife and I went to the Grand Cenote yesterday. I made it a point to arrive there just before they opened so we could beat the crowds. They open at 8am. The lady showed up over an hour late with no apology. We asked...More

This place is worthy to visit. Very beautiful and well organized. For children you may get life jacket. The water density is higher, it means swimming takes more energy

There are so many cenotes to choose from, I really wish we had kept driving a little farther from Tulum as our hotel manager suggested. However, we were with another group of people (in a car ahead of us), and they pulled in the parking...More

It’s a very beautiful cenote you’ll enjoy the clear water and the caves. However it is a little small and gets a bit packed.

This was the first Cenote we visited and we were totally blown away. It's a popular spot and tends to get a bit crowded, but if you swim away from the ropes and the stairs, there's a good bit to explore. Showers are mandatory before...More

No , if you are going soon then it’s low season so as long as you avoid the weekend it won’t be too busy.

We took a taxi from Tulum. The cheapest way would be to take a collectivo along the highway to Tulum, then taxi.
