The lagoon is beautiful and the waters are clear. There is parking, but there is nothing else there other than just some street vendors. Bring all you need.

This is a lake formed by an enormous sink hole that is surrounded by Jungle. The deep and dark water is fenced off but there is a huge amount of warm clear shallow water at adult standing depth to swim in and a pier that...More

Currently water is not blue but light green, still it is a beautiful view. You can swim near the pier. We went on a Sunday and most people were locals. The deeper area is corded off. Entrance is $50/each, even young kids.

Went today and the price is still 50 pesos. All very chilled there, about 30 people at lunchtime. Sadly the water isn’t crystal clear. Apparently it isn’t now for several months. You can still see the bottom when swimming but you won’t get the beautiful...More

What a great spot! Not far from Tulum, this is a great place to go for a little swim. It’s only 50 pesos to enter and reentry is allowed. A nice long sun deck and a great space with shallow swimming. Diving in the deep...More
