Lush jungle and a beautiful wild cenote. Not expensive or too commercial. There were just a few divers around. We walked around the cenote and saw some wildlife. Musquitos too! A lot! We missed out on the crocodile unfortunately.

Carwash was the sixth cenote we visited during our holiday in Tulum. It is cheap and basic, with a gorgeous circle of clear water and very deep. We spent a refreshing couple of hours there, swimming and jumping off a raised platform into the water....More

This cenote has a $50 pesos per person admission fee, which is pretty cheap compared to other centoes in the area! Parking was free and plentiful. Easy to find - right off the highway. It's a beautiful open cenote, great for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba...More

This is a smaller cenote a few minutes drive up from Gran Cenote. We came early in the morning and had the cenote to ourselves. Its literally right off the road but great for swimming. Inexpensive too!

I believe its Mayan name "Aktun Ha" and the story goes that people used to wash their cars. Besides divers who are there to explore the underground caves, it is not too busy. If you get lucky you catch a glimpse of the crocodile. There...More

Very close to the road - but once inside the cenote you just sense threes all around. Possibility to jump into the water from a rooftop but also to walk slowly down into the water. Not that big and no caves above waterline but very...More

This isn't as spectacular as the Gand Cenote (just down the road) but worth the visit. We went later in the afternoon and had it all to ourselves. It seems a little more off the beaten path than most cenotes. Although it's an open cenote,...More

This was a nice refreshing swim. It was cool to see the resident crocodile that hangs out at this cenote. Definitely stop by for a quick swim. But not a cenote to spend the whole day or bring kids. Great for diving.

My favorite cenotes are open cenotes like this one: feels like a cool fresh pond. We went in the afternoon after a hot day at the Coba ruins, and this was perfect. Short walk off the road, cheap, easy parking, beautiful snorkling and swimming, lots...More
