    Fun, small cenote
    Had a fun couple hours at this small but beautiful cenotes. It is an open cenotes that isn’t very big but you can jump into from high up on the sides or zip line into it. (For an extra charge). We had a great time hanging out here. They also did not charge extra for me to use my drone. We went around 9:30 and was one of only 2 parties there by the time we were leaving at 11 or so you can tell That it was getting crowded so prepare yourself for that. They do not require life jackets but have them available to rent. There’s also two pools you can use but we didn’t take advantage of.

    Gorgeous cenote with food, drinks and even a little gift shop!
    This is my fourth visit! Absolutely love this cenote. Really fun vibe with food and drinks available. I appreciate the lifeguards and friendly wait staff. It’s nice when strangers can have fun together, cheering each other to jump off the little cliff or use the zip line into the water. The nice wooden tables and chairs keep with the natural jungle vibe of the place. There are also two swimming pools in the back near the restrooms- one has a water slide that is probably fun for children. Easy to stay in the shade with all the foliage and plenty of parking. The margaritas are the bomb! I’m not sure which mix they use but it’s one of my favorites. There’s now a train that does a safari but we didn’t have time to check it out. Maybe next time! The water is very clear, and there’s a small area you can swim to be actually inside the cave- most is open air. Lots of fish!

    Slightly less crowded swimming hole
    Our driver recommended this Cenote as being a little off the tourist path and glad he did (shout out to Edgar) We could have spent all day here. The cenote is beautiful with clear fish filled water and beautiful views of the underwater caves. There are two platforms you can leap from. There is also a zip line you can fall from for 10 pesos. The surrounding area really blends with the jungle and has plenty of seating. Definitely rent a swim mask for 50 pesos or bring your own so you can really see everything. . There is a small restaurant and bar that serves local beer we recommend the Tulum beer. The staff is really helpful and friendly with many speaking English. There is also a safari tour we didn't try. Finally a nice little gift shop with good prices.

    Awesome Experience!
    I loved a few things about this place. It wasn’t busy, not expensive and pretty peaceful. The people that run it were really great. It’s definitely a beautiful place to take a swim and get away from the crowds and heat. Food and drinks were really good. Would come here again.

A unique swimming cenote that was super clean with friendly staff. This spot was included in one of our excursions (along with Tulum). The cenote was very clear and offered a cave-like experience on the side as well. They have a small snack shop and a bar near the lodges. This would be a fun experience to stay at over a hotel in the area and it appeared to be a fairly cheap option in $USD.

We stopped at this cenote for relief from the afternoon heat as part of a birdwatching tour with EcoColors. We really liked it here and spent a few hours. The cenote itself is fairly small...it has a great jumping area and some cave areas to swim in. The best thing about it is there are not crowds like the others in the area.

They have a cafe and gift shop, a hammock lounging area, some small pools for kids or more relaxed soaking than the cenote. It seemed like many local people were here.

I looked for cenotes that might be quieter and messaged these guys before driving out there for the afternoon. I think the entrance fee of 300 pesos is overpriced for what you get. The cenote is small but has a zip line for 10 pesos per go. This should be included in the entrance. It is a lovely complex but tired and in need of maintenance and painting

My family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 10 visited at around 9am. The water was still and no one was there. Initially we weren’t sure how great it would be but we had so much fun. Jumping off the top platform and taking the zip line across which was 10 pesos. So many cenotes to choose from but this one was great!

This was a nice place to visit. I was there on a Saturday and it was mostly local families. It was not very crowded - I got the cenote to myself for a few minutes! It's open to the sun and so was good for snorkeling. The cenote is surrounded by other stuff for entertainment - pools, souvenir shops, drinks, and food. They have lockers for rent, which was nice.

Friendly staff will welcome you to a small cenote and restaurant and additional pools. The cenote has a small cave you can swim into. A zipline overhead for diving in, and other facilities. Bathroom facilities could use an upgrade, but otherwise a good spot to enjoy an afternoon of drinks, swimming and food.

Called in here with a tour group after a warm and sticky visit to Tulum. Clean and very clear cenote with a zip wire and deep enough to dive in from the sides. Life jackets etc available to hire on site, plus bar, toilets and swimming pool .
Life guards on duty and gift shop for souveniers.
